The gospel lectionary reading for the so-called Last Sunday after Trinity in Year C is Luke 18.9–14, the parable of the Pharisee and the Tax-collector. We are now (as we have been for a few weeks) in the thick of distinctively Lukan material.
Although with distinct Lukan phraseology and concerns, this is a masterpiece of storytelling by Jesus in his customary style. It raises important theological issues, and is rich with interest for preaching.
Join Ian and guest contributor Dr Mark Bonnington as they explore the text, the questions it raises, and how we might preach on it.
