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 eight of this series, Alistair Begg follows Luke’s account of Christ’s continuing ministry in Galilee. Jesus performed miracles, instructed the crowds in sermons and parables, and defended the truth against the Pharisees and teachers of the law. His lessons remind us that though God owes us nothing, His invitation for salvation is open to all who are willing to forsake their pride and humbly trust and obey Him.
