Favored By God

Luke 1:28-30   Well, as we come to our time in God’s Word this morning, you can open your Bibles as we’ve been in Luke’s Gospel.  We’ve just entered into this study.  We’re just kind of dipping our toes into the water, basically, of such a wonderful, rich text of Scripture, the main subject of which is our glorious Lord and Savior…

Grace Comes to Nazareth

Luke 1:26-27 As we come to our time in God’s Word, go ahead and turn in your Bibles to Luke’s Gospel chapter 1. And we’re getting into verse 26, Luke 1:26. You’ll notice when we get there that we have finished the first narrative. We’re entering into the second narrative. Yay, yeah, woohoo! We actually made it. This is great. Like you,…

The Sign of Silence, Part 2

Luke 1:18-20   Well, as we come to our time in God’s Word, we’re turning to the Gospel of Luke.  We’re going to finish up what we started last week.  The longer I live as a Christian, the longer I work with other Christians, the more I grow in my understanding of God, His ways, His work, through His word, the more…

The Sign of Silence, Part 1

Luke 1:18-20   We’re looking at Luke chapter 1, the first two annunciation narratives.  These were essentially birth announcements.  When God announces the birth of a special child, He doesn’t send a fancy card in the mail.  He sends a messenger from the throne room, an angelic messenger.  The particular messenger who spoke to Zechariah more than 2,000 years ago is an…

Great Before the Lord

Luke 1:14-17 I want to begin reading this morning in the text we’re going to study, and that’s Luke 1:13 to 17.  Follow along as I read. “The angel said to Zechariah, ‘Do not be afraid, Zechariah, for your prayer has been heard and your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you shall call his name John.  And you will…

A Startling Answer to Prayer

Luke 1:8-13 So, as we saw last time, the story we just kind of dipped our toe into the water a little bit—that story began with a faithful couple, an older couple—a righteous priest named Zechariah and his righteous wife Elizabeth, and as we talked about in some detail last time, they were living in some very, very dark times, this couple.…

The Parents of the Forerunner

Luke 1:5-7   And, as we noted before, Luke goes further back than any other gospel writer in telling the story about Jesus’ life and ministry.  He goes all the way back to the angelic announcement of the birth of John the Baptist.  Why does he do that?  Is he just trying to show up the other gospel writers? No, he’s got…

Luke, the Beloved Physician

Selected Scriptures   Last week we considered the prologue, and we talked about the author’s diligence in his research, his concern for accuracy and his goal of providing his readers, starting with Theophilus, with certainty about the gospel.  The one thing we have not seen in the biblical records is a clear statement about who wrote it.  Why do we say Luke…

Gospel Certainty for Gentile Sinners, Part 2

Luke 1:1-4 We’re going to take some time just at the outset of this study to get this introductory look at Luke. We, we spent some time there last week in introduction. This week, I’ve got one more week of introduction. We want to do a little bit of a biography of Luke, next week, so we’ll talk about that. But it’s…

Gospel Certainty for Gentile Sinners, Part 1

Luke 1:1-4 Now a reasonable question at this point is to ask is “Why?”  Why launch into a long study on the Gospel of Luke?  Why chew up all that time, spending all that time in the pulpit in one author’s writings?  Won’t that cause us to become a bit out of balance?  Whether or not you are asking questions like that…
