This is simply a cartoon walk through the Gospel of Luke. It is based on the single panel cartoons of the Cartoon Gospel of Luke put into a more comic book style format. The scripture passages used were selected from Luke passages of the common lectionary.
Why Cartoons? A cartoon is somewhat like a visual form of parable. A parable is a short and entertaining story with a message. The idea behind a parable is that the listener will enjoy it enough to remember it and retell it to others (just think if they had e-mail in biblical times). There are parables in both the Old and New Testament, perhaps none more well known than those told by Jesus. Humor, in general, goes a long way toward illustrating a point, often more effectively than serious discourse.
I am a cartoonist by profession and a theologian and writer out of necessity. The cartoon is my main medium of expression and therefore my intent is for them to convey, in a memorable and entertaining way, the main points of these scriptures. Thank you for reading the Comic Book of Luke!
