Abstract

LE ROUX, Jurie. The different manifestations of suffering and the Lukan Jesus. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2019, vol.75, n.3, pp.1-8. ISSN 2072-8050.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/hts.v75i3.5662.

Eben Scheffler wrote much on poverty and social injustice, and this article focusses on his understanding of the Gospel of Luke and the Book of Acts in order to comprehend the different dimensions of suffering and the healing ministry of the Lukan Jesus. Scheffler stressed that Jesus' life, from birth to cross, was immersed in suffering thus becoming part of the human condition of sorrow and misery, but Scheffler ultimately stressed the compassion of Jesus' ministry which continued in the early church and which must be reflected by his followers to all people.

Keywords : Jesus; Gospel of Luke; Book of Acts; suffering; poverty; illness; compassion; healing; love.
