Luke In Lent - Luke 5: 1-26

07/03/2019 12:00 pm

Today's podcast for 'Reading Luke in Lent' looks at Luke, Chapter 5: 1-26

Luke’s storytelling can have vivid touches: the boat pushed away from the shore, the removal of a roof. As vivid is Jesus’ calling of Simon Peter: the invitation to put out into the deep, the catch of fish. Peter follows because of what he has seen and heard; he is the first to recognise him as ‘Lord’.

In this section there is the first of series of encounters with Pharisees where they challenge Jesus. In his responses Jesus slowly reveals who he is — here he is the Son of Man who has authority to forgive sins.

'Reading Luke in Lent' is a series of simple podcasts for the Lenten season offering a daily reading from St Luke - covering the Gospel from start to finish - from Ash Wednesday to the first week of Easter.
