Of Christ’s fifty-one ‘parables,’ thirty-five are found in Luke, nineteen of which are unique to his gospel. It can also be said that Luke's gospel has more comprehensive range than the others, beginning with the announcements concerning the births of John the Baptist and Jesus and ending with a reference to the ascension of Christ.
