As the Gospel of Luke begins, its author declares his intent to compile “an orderly account” of Jesus’ life and ministry so that anyone who reads it “may have certainty concerning the things you have been taught.” When we open its pages, this is exactly what we find. Tracing Jesus’ life from His nativity and ministry to His death, resurrection, and ascension, Luke presents us with a portrait of a perfect, divine Savior in whom we can believe fully and securely.
In volume ten of this series, Alistair Begg follows Jesus as He interacts with the Pharisees, heals the afflicted, and tells parables on His journey toward Jerusalem. Along the way, Jesus reveals the topsy-turvy nature of God’s kingdom—the last made first, the lost being found, outsiders being brought in, and sinners being made righteous. As He approaches the cross, His words rebuke the prideful but promise hope to those who lean on His perfection.
