This begins the section of Luke’s Gospel known as the “Travel Narrative”. In this section, Jesus and his disciples journey to Jerusalem where redemption will occur and the Church will be born. St. Luke uses nearly 10 chapters (9:51-19:27) to record the journey to Jerusalem. Along the way, Jesus prepares his disciples for the work to which he has called them. These lessons for discipleship offer each of us practical help for living the faith day in and day out. St. Luke packs important principles of discipleship in the opening eleven verses of the narrative.
