Hi,
I'm surprised that your doing your RS exam so late; at my school there are only Business Studies and Texttiles Technology candidates that have any examinations left. I did my Religious Studies paperb on May 27th and Paper 2 on June 14th, so I am feeling a little out of practise with this subject. However, I've been doing some detective work from the following hyperlink:
http://www.ocr.org.uk/OCR/WebSite/Da...nS74foWvyW.pdf

and came across the following:

Section A Luke

Luke brings to his writings.
Questions may be based on any of the themes or combination of the themes set out below.
The following themes, as presented and interpreted in Luke’s writings, and their modern-day
implications, should be explored:
The Nature of God
Candidates should have an understanding of the triune God of Christianity. They are required to
study the life and teachings of Jesus from Luke’s writings. They should be aware of Jesus’
teaching about God the Father, and of the work of the Holy Spirit both in the life of Jesus and in
the Church today.

Candidates should be aware of the way in which the events of the life of Jesus are celebrated by

centrality to that belief of the Messiahship of Jesus as expressed in Luke 2 and 9.

Best of Luck! Hope you achieve the grade you're hoping for!
