Luke’s Gospel reveals God among men in his saving grace given to fallen mankind. Its purpose is to present the Savior as a genuine, normal, and perfect man. It gives a complete genealogy of the man Jesus, from his parents back to Adam, the first generation of mankind, and shows that he is a genuine descendant of man–a son of man.
Its record of the life of this man impresses us with the completeness and perfection of his humanity. Hence, this Gospel stresses the Lord as the man-savior.
In contrast to Matthew, Luke does not stress the dispensational aspect or the Jewish background. It is the Gospel written to mankind in general, and it announces the good news to all people. Its characteristic are absolutely not Jewish, but Gentile. It is a Gospel to all sinners, both Jewish and Gentile. Since it is such, the sequence of its record is according to morality, not according to historical events.
