The Gospel of Luke is one of the “synoptic” gospels as it is a written account of the life of Jesus Christ. Luke was a Greek physician and a friend of Paul’s. He also wrote the Book of Acts, which we’ll cover after this. What I like about Luke is that he was a historian — an investigative reporter of the 1st century. Being a history buff, I appreciate his accuracy in placing the events, as we will see, in known historic times.
As Paul told us in the Book of Romans, Jesus came to save the Jew first, then the Gentiles. The Gospel of Luke tells the story of Jesus trying to reach the Jews in Israel and the Book of Acts tells how the Gospel — the Good News — is rejected by the Jews and then God instructs the apostles to spread it beyond Israel to the rest of the world.
Luke is the only one to tell the “Christmas” story of Jesus’ birth in detail as we will see. The first chapter is the announcement that God will soon be with us. Let’s dig in…
Jesus said, “Anyone with ears to hear must listen to the Spirit and understand what he is saying to the churches.” ~ Revelation 3:22 NLT – This phrase is repeated 14 times in scripture. Kind of gives the idea that God wants us to pay attention.
If you want to reap all the benefits of salvation including the 1-way, non-stop ticket to Heaven then…
Believe. Repent. Be Baptized. Receive the Holy Spirit.
Pray this prayer humbly and wholeheartedly…
“Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner. I believe You died for my sins. Please forgive me. Right now, I turn from my sins and open the door of my heart and my life to you. I confess You as my personal Lord and Savior. I surrender my whole life to you and I will follow you for the rest of my life. Thank You, Jesus, for saving me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
Jesus is coming back soon! Are you ready?
Soli Deo Gloria — To God Alone Be the Glory!
