This study focuses on Jesus’ parables that are unique to the Gospel of Luke. These parables are stories that, according to Luke, Jesus shared with his disciples as they accompanied him on the most crucial journey they ever took together—the journey to Jerusalem. There Jesus would die, and there the disciples would learn of the true nature and cost of following him. These stories in Luke’s Gospel are pilgrimage parables. They are parables for those on the way to being the people of God. They are not places where we stop and stay; they are rather places where we learn what we need to learn and from which, equipped with Jesus’ directions, we continue the journey. But we will see that they are also places to which we repeatedly return. Because it became Scripture, Luke’s Gospel functions for us as it has for generations of believers through the centuries: as our guidebook while we try to find our own way in following Jesus. Like Jesus’ first disciples and like Luke’s original audience, we want to follow Jesus in taking up our cross and laying down our life.
