Luke's Jesus is a passionate advocate on behalf of the poor, and he's convinced that God is on their side. He also tells his disciples to get their butts busy meeting the needs of the people who don't have anything. This guy isn't talking about puny acts of charity that leave your own comforts and securities totally intact. No, these are big, life-altering efforts on behalf of the poor, like selling all your possessions. That's what people are chattering about when they speak of Luke's monumental humanity (check out more in "Why Should I Care?").
