Finding Hope in the Christmas Story

Luke 2:1-7 The story of Christ’s birth is so special and so meaningful, and especially, I would say at, in this particular Christmas season, which has seemed, I think, coming out of this year, so bleak and difficult.  I don’t need to rehearse to all of you what you know about this difficult year.  It’s enough to say, though, that many people…

Why Angels Rejoice

Luke 2:8-14 A holy angel came to say I bring you good news. Good news. That’s a single verb in the language there. It’s translated here in our text using four words, ”I bring you good news.” It’s the verb euangelizo. We transliterate that word into English as the word “evangelize.” It’s the origin of that term that we call ourselves the…

The Theology of the Messiah’s Growth

Luke 2:49-52 We’re looking for God’s grace to trust him even more, and we’re going to find that in our text this morning. So turn in your Bibles to Luke’s Gospel. Last week we started reading the story of Jesus as a 12-year-old boy, visiting the temple, and you can find that story at the end of Chapter 2. We’re going to…

The First Words of the Divine Child

Luke 2:39-49 It’s a joy to be back in Luke’s Gospel again today. And if you’re not already there, you’ll want to open the second chapter of Luke. We have been enjoying a rich, rich study of the infancy narratives about Jesus as a baby, and here, we’re going to see this morning, as a little boy. Luke has been preparing us…

The Testimony of a Senior Saint

Luke 2:36-38 The section that we’re finishing today, looking at the character and the testimony of Simeon and then Anna.  It’s provided an opportunity I’ve longed desired.  It should not escape our notice, if you’ve read the narrative, if you’ve been with us, that Simeon and Anna just like Zechariah and Elizabeth back in Chapter 1, they were, as the Bible so…

The Testimony of Simeon, Part 2

Luke 2:29-35 As we turn our attention to God’s word this morning, we’re in Luke 2:29. Last week Luke introduced us to Simeon. This man Simeon, he Luke invited us to behold this remarkable man. He is a righteous and devout man. He was living in a remarkably dark time. He was living among apostate people in an apostate city. But even…

The Testimony of Simeon, Part 1

Luke 2:25-30 Today in Luke’s Gospel in Chapter 2, we’re crossing the midpoint of this great chapter, which wraps up the infancy narratives of Jesus, the Messiah, the Savior of the whole world. As we learned last week, Luke has set some context for us so that we’re going to have a deeper theological understanding of what’s recorded here. Some fascinating verses…

The Theology of the Lord’s Salvation

The Theology of the Lord’s Salvation January 10, 2016 For today, we want to return to our study in the Gospel of Luke because we want to become reacquainted with the real Gospel message. In a world of superficiality and triviality, we all feel the need to return to the old, old story to find out for ourselves what really happened so…

Why the Bethlehem Shepherds?

Luke 2:1-20 Open your Bibles to Luke’s Gospel, and this morning we are going to continue the narrative that we started at verse 1 in   Luke, Chapter 2. And that narrative that starts in verse 1 of Chapter 2, it goes all the way to verse 20. So, we’re going to begin this morning by reading that section. There is so much…

The Birth of Jesus Christ, Part 2

Luke 2:4-7 We are in Luke Chapter 2 this morning, so you can open your Bibles to Luke Chapter 2. Last week we entered into the nativity story, just breaking ground there, looking at the entrance of Jesus Christ into the world as a newborn baby. And that involved, I’ll admit, a bit of a history lesson. I had to take you…
