 Our Description

 

Mission of the Messiah is a compelling new study of the Gospel of Luke that presents the messianic mission of Jesus as the fulfillment of Old Testament prophecy. This book is a must for anyone whose heart is burning to know and love Christ more profoundly.

 

Imprimatur: Most Rev. Bishop Gilbert M. Sheldon, D.D., D.Min.,

"Here at last! A Catholic Bible study that makes Luke come alive. If you are hungering for the Bread of Life, this will satisfy. I heartily recommend Tim Gray's treatment of Luke, especially for parish and neighborhood Bible study groups."
- Scott Hahn

"Mission of the Messiah provides a valuable introduction to the fundamental themes of Jesus' messianic mission. The work is both enlightening and provocative. It is clearly presented in a compact and biblically insightful manner. It should be very easily accessible to the Catholic who wants to learn more about his or her faith."
- Most Rev. Robert J. Carlson, Bishop of Sioux Falls

"Finally, a Catholic Bible study guide! Tim Gray has given us a tool that allows St. Luke's Gospel to reach both the head and the heart. This book will open the reader up to God's grace and that, after all, is the mission of the Messiah."
- Curtis A. Martin, Director, Fellowship of Catholic University Students

"Tim Gray demonstrates how the Old Testament is unveiled in the Gospel, leaving the reader with the surge of excitement that only comes upon the discovery of something great."
- Jeff Cavins, Host, "Life on the Rock"

Tim Gray is assistant professor of Scripture and catechetics at the Notre Dame Graduate School of Christendom College in Front Royal and Alexandria, Virginia. He holds a Th.M. degree in Scripture from Duke University and a master's degree in theology from Franciscan University of Steubenville. He is also the co-author of Catholic for a Reason: Scripture and the Mystery of the Family of God.

Profile
Born to pagan Greek parents, and possibly a slave. One of the earliest converts. Physician, studying in Antioch and Tarsus. Probably travelled as a ship's doctor; many charitable societies of physicians are named for him. Legend has that he was also a painter who may have done portraits of Jesus and Mary, but none have ever been correctly or definitively attributed to him; this story, and the inspiration his Gospel has always given artists, led to his patronage of them. He met Saint Paul at Troas, and evangelized Greece and Rome with him, being there for the shipwreck and other perils of the voyage to Rome, and stayed in Rome for Paul's two years of in prison. Wrote the Gospel According to Luke, much of which was based on the teachings and writings of Paul, interviews with early Christians, and his own experiences. Wrote a history of the early Church in the Acts of the Apostles. Martyr.
Born
at Antioch
Died
c.74 in Greece; some stories say he was martyred, others not; relics at Padua, Italy
