Luke In Lent - Luke 22:1-38

01/04/2019 9:35 am

Today's podcast for 'Reading Luke in Lent' looks at Luke, Chapter 22:1-38.

Three times before in Luke has Jesus sent out his followers in pairs to prepare the way for him. Now he sends Peter and John to prepare the place where they will celebrate a meal. At the end of this section he will recall his instruction to the disciples to go out as he prepares the apostles to make their way in the world. But that is not yet.

In the meal Jesus recalls the passover as he looks forward to his own exodus. The passover was about the liberation from slavery in Egypt. Now Jesus, who from the beginning has sought to set people free, will offer himself as the new passover lamb who through his death and resurrection will establish the new passover and the new covenant.

'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.
