In this insightful and accessible commentary, Nicholas Perrin explores the many unique pictures of Jesus found in the Gospel of Luke—from being a child in his Father's house to associating with the poor and disreputable, in communion with the Holy Spirit, and, above all, setting out resolutely for Jerusalem to fulfill God's plan for the world.

With particular attention to the redemptive-historical storyline and its scriptural roots, Perrin examines how Luke's Gospel is embedded in human history. He also show how it follows a cyclical narrative structure, with each recapitulation expanding the horizons of what has gone before.

Part of the Tyndale New Testament commentary series, Luke: An Introduction and Commentary examines the text section-by-section—exploring the context in which it was written, providing astute commentary on Luke's Gospel, and then unpacking the theology. It offers a thorough understanding of the content and structure of Luke, as well as its continued relevance for Christians today.

The Tyndale Commentaries are designed to help the reader of the Bible understand what the text says and what it means. The Introduction to each book gives a concise but thorough treatment of its authorship, date, original setting, and purpose. Following a structural Analysis, the Commentary takes the book section by section, drawing out its main themes, and also comments on individual verses and problems of interpretation. Additional Notes provide fuller discussion of particular difficulties.
