In A Theology of Luke and Acts, A Video Study, top New Testament scholar Darrell L. Bock offers an in-depth study of Luke’s gospel and the book of Acts. The lessons provide a thorough exploration of the important introductory issues, major theological themes, and how each book relates to the broad picture of New Testament theology.

In his writing, Luke records the story of God working through Jesus to usher in a new era of promise and Spirit-enablement so that the people of God can be God’s people even in the midst of a hostile world. It is a message the church still needs today. The lessons cover major Lukan themes and set forth the distinctive contribution of Luke-Acts to the New Testament and the canon of Scripture, providing students of the Bible with a comprehensive and holistic grasp of Lukan theology in the larger context of the Bible.

A Theology of Luke and Acts, A Video Study is part of The Zondervan Beyond the Basics Video Series, which is dedicated to bringing expert teaching from world’s best biblical scholars and theologians directly to interested learners.
