Luke - Nova Vulgata
The Gospel according to Luke is the first part of a two-volume work that continues the biblical history of God's dealings with humanity found in the Old Testament, showing how God's promises to Israel have been fulfilled in Jesus and how the salvation promised to Israel and accomplished by Jesus has been extended to the Gentiles. The stated purpose of the two volumes is to provide Theophilus and others like him with certainty--assurance--about earlier instruction they have received (Luke 1:4). To accomplish his purpose, Luke shows that the preaching and teaching of the representatives of the early church are grounded in the preaching and teaching of Jesus, who during his historical ministry (Acts 1:21-22) prepared his specially chosen followers and commissioned them to be witnesses to his resurrection and to all else that he did (Acts 10:37-42). This continuity between the historical ministry of Jesus and the ministry of the apostles is Luke's way of guaranteeing the fidelity of the Church's teaching to the teaching of Jesus. - Luke's story of Jesus and the church is dominated by a historical perspective. This history is first of all salvation history. God's divine plan for human salvation was accomplished during the period of Jesus, who through the events of his life (Luke 22:22) fulfilled the Old Testament prophecies (Luke 4:21; 18:31; 22:37; 24:26-27, 44), and this salvation is now extended to all humanity in the period of the church (Acts 4:12). This salvation history, moreover, is a part of human history. Luke relates the story of Jesus and the church to events in contemporary Palestinian (Luke 1:5; 3:1-2; Acts 4:6) and Roman (Luke 2:1-2; 3:1; Acts 11:28; 18:2, 12) history for, as Paul says in Acts 26:26, "this was not done in a corner." Finally, Luke relates the story of Jesus and the church to contemporaneous church history. Luke is concerned with presenting Christianity as a legitimate form of worship in the Roman world, a religion that is capable of meeting the spiritual needs of a world empire like that of Rome. To this end, Luke depicts the Roman governor Pilate declaring Jesus innocent of any wrongdoing three times (Luke 23:4, 14, 22). At the same time Luke argues in Acts that Christianity is the logical development and proper fulfillment of Judaism and is therefore deserving of the same toleration and freedom traditionally accorded Judaism by Rome (Acts 13:16-41; 23:6-9; 24:10-21; 26:2-23).
(...) - Early Christian tradition, from the late second century on, identifies the author of this gospel and of the Acts of the Apostles as Luke, a Syrian from Antioch, who is mentioned in the New Testament in Col 4:14, Philippians 1:24 and 2 Tim 4:11. The prologue of the gospel makes it clear that Luke is not part of the first generation of Christian disciples but is himself dependent upon the traditions he received from those who were eyewitnesses and ministers of the word (Luke 1:2). His two- volume work marks him as someone who was highly literate both in the Old Testament traditions according to the Greek versions and in Hellenistic Greek writings. (...) - Luke's consistent substitution of Greek names for the Aramaic or Hebrew names occurring in his sources (e.g., Luke 23:33; // Mark 15:22; Luke 18:41; // Mark 10:51), his omission from the gospel of specifically Jewish Christian concerns found in his sources (e.g., Mark 7:1-23), his interest in Gentile Christians (Luke 2:30-32; 3:6, 38; 4:16-30; 13:28-30; 14:15-24; 17:11-19; 24:47-48), and his incomplete knowledge of Palestinian geography, customs, and practices are among the characteristics of this gospel that suggest that Luke was a non-Palestinian writing to a non-Palestinian audience that was largely made up of Gentile Christians. - The principal divisions of the Gospel according to Luke are the following: I. The Prologue (Luke 1:1-4) II. The Infancy Narrative (Luke 1:5-2:52) III. The Preparation for the Public Ministry (Luke 3:1-4:13) IV. The Ministry in Galilee (Luke 4:14-9:50) V. The Journey to Jerusalem: Luke's Travel Narrative (Luke 9:51-19:27) VI. The Teaching Ministry in Jerusalem (Luke 19:28-21:38) VII. The Passion Narrative (Luke 22:1-23:56) VIII. The Resurrection Narrative (Luke 24:1-53) - (NAB)

    LUCAS (NV)



    Pariet tibi filium, et vocabis nomen eius Ioannem
    Nativitas Ioannis Baptistae a Gabriele annuntiatur
    Ecce concipies in utero et paries filium
    Unde hoc mihi ut veniat mater Domini mei ad me? - Beata quae credidit
    Magnificat anima mea Dominum
    Fecit mihi magna qui potens est

    Nativitas Ioannis Baptistae - Ioannes est nomen eius
    Visitavit nos Oriens ex alto

    2 Peperit filium suum primogenitum - Natus est vobis hodie Salvator

    Invenerunt pastores Mariam et Ioseph et infantem - Conservabat omnia verba haec, conferens in corde suo

    Et post dies octo, vocatum est nomen eius Iesus


    Viderunt oculi mei salutare tuum
    Tuam ipsius animam pertransiet gladius

    Puer crescebat, plenus sapientia
    Iesus in medio doctorum a parentibus invenitur - Pater tuus et ego dolentes quaerebamus te - Conservabat omnia verba in corde suo

    3 Videbit omnis caro salutare Dei

    Quid faciemus et nos?



    Iesu baptizato et orante, apertum est caelum
    Genealogia Iesu Christi, filii Adam, filii Dei






    4 Agebatur in Spiritu in desertum, et tentabatur

    Spiritus Domini super me; propter quod unxit me evangelizare pauperibus, misit me...
    Hodie impleta est haec scriptura


    Nemo propheta acceptus est in patria - Iesus sicut Elias et Eliseus non ad Iudaeos tantum mittitur
    Sio te qui sis, Sanctus Dei
    Et aliis civitatibus oportet me evangelizare, quia ideo missus sum
    5 Relictis omnibus, secuti sunt illum
    Et confestim lepra discessit ab illo
    Vidimus mirabilia hodie
    Non veni vocare iustos, sed peccatore in paenitentiam
    Cum ablatus fuerit ab illis sponsus, tunc ieiunabunt
    6 Quid facitis quod non licet in sabbatis?
    Observabant si sabbato curaret
    Erat pernoctans in oratione. Et elegit duodecim quos et apostolos nominavit


    Beati pauperes. Vae vobis divitibus

    Estote misericordes, sicut et Pater vester misericors est - Dimittite, et dimittemini
    Numquid potest caecus caecum ducere?
    Ex abundantia cordis os loquitur
    Quid vocatis me Domine, Domine, et non facitis quae dico?
    7 Nec in Israel tantam fidem inveni
    Adulescens, tibi dico: surge

    Nuntiate Ioanni quae vidistis et audistis
    Ioannes est angelus qui praeparat viam Domini
    Cantavimus et non saltastis, lamentavimus et non plorastis
    Remissa sunt peccata eius multa, quoniam dilexit multum
    8 Mulieres erant cum illis et ministrabant eis de facultatibus suis
    Quod in bonam terram, hi sunt qui verbum retinent et fructum afferunt in patientia
    Lucerna supra candelabrum ponitur, ut intrantes videant lumen
    Mater mea et fratres mei, hi sunt qui verbum Dei audiunt et faciunt

    9 Misit illos praedicare regnum Dei et sanare infirmos
    Ioannem ego decollavi. Quis autem est iste, de quo audio talia?

    Manducaverunt et saturati sunt omnes
    Tu es Christus Dei
    Oportet Filium hominis multa pati
    Qui perdiderit animam suam propter me, salvam faciet illam



    Facta est dum oraret species vultus eius altera

    Filius hominis futurum est ut tradatur. Timebant interrogare eum de hoc verbo
    Qui minor est inter omnes vos hic maior est
    Qui non est adversum vos pro vobis est
    Faciem suam firmavit ut iret Ierusalem
    Sequar te quocumque ieris - Nemo mittens manum suam in aratrum et aspiciens retro, aptus est regno Dei
    10 Messis quidem multa, operarii autem pauci
    Requiescet super illam pax vestra

    Curate infirmos

    Qui me spernit, spernit eum qui me misit
    Gaudete quod nomina vestra scripta sunt in caelis
    Iesus exsultat Spiritu Sancto
    Quis est meus proximus?
    Martha excepit illum in domum suam. Maria optimam partem elegit
    11 Domine, doce nos orare
    Petite, et dabitur vobis

    Si in digito Dei eicio daemonia, pervenit in vos regnum Dei - Qui non est mecum adversum me est

    Beatus venter qui te portavit! Quinimmo beati qui audiunt verbum Dei
    Signum non dabitur generationi huic nisi signum Ionae prophetae

    Date eleemosynam et ecce omnia munda sunt vobis
    Vae vobis, pharisaeis; et vobis, legis peritis, vae!
    Requiretur sanguis prophetarum a sanguine Abel usque ad sanguinem Zachariae
    12 Et capilli capitis vestri omnes numerati sunt
    Spiritus Sanctus docebit vos in ipsa hora quae oporteat dicere

    Si cui res abundant, vita eius non est ex his quae possidet - Quae parasti, cuius erunt?

    Complacuit Patri vestro dare vobis regnum
    Beati servi quos cum venerit dominus invenerit vigilantes
    Et vos estote parati
    Omni cui multum datum est, multum quaeretur ab eo

    Non veni dare pacem, sed separationem
    Faciem terrae et caeli nostis probare? hoc autem tempus quomodo nescitis probare?
    13 Si non paenitentiam egeritis, omnes similiter peribitis
    Hanc filiam Abrahae non oportuit solvi a vinculo die sabbati?
    Crevit granum et factum est in arborem
    Venient ab oriente et occidente, et accumbent in regno Dei
    Non capit prophetam perire extra Ierusalem

    14 Cuius filius aut bos in puteum cadet, et non extrahet illum die sabbati?
    Qui se exaltat humiliabitur, et qui se humiliat exaltabitur
    Noli vocare amicos tuos, sed pauperes et debiles
    Exi in vias et saepes et compelle intrare ut impleatur domus mea
    Qui non renuntiat omnibus quae possidet, non potest meus esse discipulus



    15 Congratulamini mihi, quia inveni ovem meam quae perierat - Gaudium erit in caelo super uno peccatore poenitentiam agente

    Pater, peccavi - Frater tuus hic mortuus erat et revixit
    16 Filii huius saeculi prudentiores filiis lucis in generatione sua sunt

    Si in iniquo mammona fideles non fuistis, quod verum est quis credet vobis? - Non potestis Deo servire et mammonae


    Recepisti bona et Lazarus mala; nunc hic consolatur, tu vero cruciaris
    17 Si septies in die conversus fuerit ad te dicens: Paenitet me, dimittes illi
    Si haberetis fidem!
    Servi inutiles sumus: quod debuimus facere fecimus
    Non sunt inventi qui redirent ut darent gloriam Deo nisi hic alienigena
    Regnum Dei intra vos est
    Qua die Filius hominis revelabitur
    18 Deus faciet vindictam electorum suorum clamantium ad se
    Descendit publicanus iustificatus in domum suam a pharisaeo

    Quid tibis vis faciam? - Domine, ut videam
    19 Venit Filius hominis quaerere et salvum facere quod perierat
    Quare non dedisti pecuniam meam ad mensam?


    Si cognovisses quae ad pacem tibi!
    Fecistis domum Dei speluncam latronum


    20 Deus non est mortuorum, sed vivorum


    21 Vidit viduam pauperculam mittentem minuta duo
    Non relinquetur lapis super lapidem
    Eritis odio omnibus propter nomen meum, et capillus de capite vestro non peribit. In patientia vestra possidebitis animas vestras
    Ierusalem calcabitur a gentibus donec impleantur tempora nationum
    Appropinquat redemptio vestra
    Cum videritis haec fieri, scitote quoniam prope est regnum Dei
    Vigilate ut possitis fugere ista omnia quae futura sunt


    22
    Passio Domini nostri Iesu Christi

    Hoc facite in meam commemorationem

    Ego autem in medio vestrum sum sicut qui ministrat


    Pater, non mea voluntas, sed tua fiat
    Factus est sudor eius sicut guttae sanguinis decurrentis in terram

    23 Passio Domini nostri Iesu Christi



    Domine, memento mei, cum veneris in regnum tuum - Hodie mecum eris in paradiso
    Pater, in manus tuas commendo spiritum meum





    24 Quid quaeritis viventem cum mortuis?

    Mane nobiscum quoniam advesperascit
    Cognoverunt eum in fractione panis
    Videte manus meas et pedes meos
    Mittit Iesus apostolos praedicare paenitentiam
    Sic scriptum est, Christum pati et resurgere a mortuis tertia die et praedicari in nomine eius paenitentiam
    Dum benediceret illis, ferebatur in caelum
