Read / Mark / Learn is a small group Bible study series that is designed to equip people to study God’s Word for themselves.
This second volume of studies in Luke continues on from the first volume, starting at chapter 9 verse 51, and follows as Jesus turns His attention towards Jerusalem and the cross. These 26 studies are split into 5 sections: Proclaiming the Savior’s Kingdom, The Growth of the Savior’s Kingdom, The Number of the Savior’s People, The Coming of the Savior’s Kingdom, and Salvation Accomplished. Each study establishes the context, aim, structure and lessons of the passage and shows links with the Old Testament and practical applications and suggestions. There are conversational discussion starters and suggested questions for leading a Bible study.
By God’s grace, William Taylor is one of our finest bible expositors today. In this volume, he studies the travel narrative of Luke’s Gospel. With meticulous attention to the context, he doesn’t lose the forest for the trees, and carefully reveals the intent of Luke as our author and theologian in his ‘orderly account’. Here is a great gift to help us mediate and delight in God’s most holy Word.

Read Mark Learn (RML) is surely the benchmark for group Bible study and William Taylor’s second Luke volume reminds us just how high the RML standard is. It provides a complete tool box for those aiming at serious engagement with the text. Context, main themes, structure, aim and focused application support the suggested study questions. I can’t imagine there is anything else in the publishing world that could match this.

What a great resource! Whether for personal study, group discussion, or for preaching, this is a wonderful guide which unpacks Luke’s message in a clear and comprehensive way, sets the story in its wider Biblical frame, highlights its themes and provides key questions for reflection and discussion. But what makes this more than a study guide (though it is first rate in that regard) are the many nuggets of wisdom, the penetrating insights, and the pertinent application for today’s disciples.
