know his voice - day 34

Today's reading in the Know His Voice project, Luke 24, will complete your reading of the Synoptic Gospels (Matthew, Mark and Luke). Quite a few of Luke's favorite themes converge here in Luke 24 as he brings his Gosepl to a close. As you read this chapter today, see if you notice some of the following "themes of thought" Luke's Gospel is now for: women, the plan and purpose of God, Jerusalem, the temple, prophets/prophecy, the word of God, repentance, forgiveness, salvation, blessing, peace, joy and praise. Try this - read the chapter through one to get the drift of things then read it through a second time, underlining the themes mentioned above that you see mentioned, whether explicitly or implicitly.
