Le Beau Christ de Luc
Collection Lire la Bible - N° 145
240 pages - sept. 2006
‘The Good Samaritan’; ‘The Prodigal Son’; ‘The Disciples at Emmaus’: those terms are still in common use today. Resituating them in their original context in the Gospel According to St. Luke (whence they came) restores their spiritual profundity, conducive to revealing God incarnate in the man, Jesus of Nazareth. This is the Good News that this book wishes to highlight, through a study in two voices – because, with Luke, they always talk about Jesus more effectively when there are two! The authors follow three guiding threads unravelled by Luke with infinite care throughout the various episodes he recounts, in order to show Jesus from three different perspectives: Jesus as the Good Samaritan close to all men; Jesus as He who comes in the Word; and Jesus, the Son, wishing to lead all men back to the Father. Was Saint Luke a painter? His greatest work, without doubt, is the portrait of Jesus of Nazareth he paints in his Gospel, the radiant countenance of mercy and goodness, the ‘beautiful Christ’.
