Salvation for All

Gerald O'Collins, SJ

Oxford University Press

This chapter highlights Luke and his idea on the key theme of salvation and the universal scope of the saving work of God. There are two majestic prayers that enunciate the theme of salvation and these include the following: the ‘Benedictus’ glorifies God for 'salvation from our enemies and from the hand of all who hate us' (1:17), and the ‘Magnificat’ praises ‘God my Saviour’ (1:47). Meanwhile, it points out that God is called the ‘saviour’ as stated in the Old Testament.
