Our Church has been studying Luke’s Gospel during Lent. Starting on Monday, and each day of Holy Week, BBC Radio 4 will be broadcasting Witness: Behind Luke’s Story in which Ernie Rea will explore aspects of the Gospel and Jesus’ teaching. This will be based on a series of 45-minute radio plays by Nick Warburton, first broadcast in 2007.
