The Gospel of Luke may be very familiar to you. You have probably heard the Nativity story every Christmas since your childhood. Most of what we learn and cherish about the infancy and childhood of Jesus comes from Luke, probably through his research and interviews with the Blessed Mother Mary. Most people, even non-Christians, recognize the parable of the Prodigal Son. And there is so much more!
May God surprise you with joy as you study and delve deeper into the Gospel of Luke with Come and See: The Gospel of Luke.
