Why Luke as our text for The Gospel Coalition 2013 National Conference? It's a good question, you know. Throughout history the third Gospel has not, after all, tended to garner the same attention and affection as its canonical counterparts.
Corresponding to the conference theme, "His Mission: Jesus in the Gospel of Luke," New Testament scholar Thomas Schreiner will be offering courses on New Testament I [syllabus] and Luke's Gospel [syllabus]. In fact, you can earn up to six hours of transferable course credit through Southern Seminary in conjunction with the conference. Students will attend exclusive lectures, panel discussions, and events featuring renowned professors and pastors throughout the conference.
