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 two of this series, Alistair Begg directs our attention to the message of John the Baptist as well as the baptism and wilderness temptation of Jesus, which paved the way for the imminent commencement of His public ministry. When John first came on the scene, many thought he was the long-awaited Messiah. Though they regretted to learn that he wasn’t, their disappointment was short-lived: even as John spoke, Christ was making His way into their region.
