The Gospel of Luke: Chapter 3

main image
In this third chapter, Luke highlights the ministry of John the Baptist. John was the forerunner of Jesus and the one God had ordained to prepare for the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. Luke stated that John’s calling and ministry was a fulfillment of Old Testament prophecy.
Luke records the baptism of Christ and how the heavens were opened and the Holy Spirit descended on Him like a dove. John had told all those who came to him for baptism, that one was coming who was greater than him and would baptize them with the Holy Spirit and fire.
We can thank God today for sending His Son to save us from our sin and baptize us with the Holy Spirit. Let us worship God today for providing for our salvation in Christ Jesus our Lord!

Luke: A Gospel for All

Chapter 2 gives a detailed account of the birth of Jesus. Luke records the reason Mary and Joseph were in Bethlehem and how this fulfilled Old Testament prophecy.  Luke gives details of the host of angel’s coming down from heaven to announce The birth of Jesus.

Luke records the blessing of Jesus as He is brought into the temple and Simeon and Anna prophesy concerning Him. Luke gives us the only recorded event in the childhood of Jesus as He comes to Jerusalem with His parents to observe the “Passover.” Jesus was 12 years old and became separated from His family as they journeyed back to Nazareth. His parents found Him after 3 days and He told them that He was doing the Father’s business. What an example to us to be about our Lord’s business.
