The Gospel According to Luke, Volume 1
As the Gospel of Luke begins, its author declares his intent to compile “an orderly account” of the person of Jesus 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 crucifixion, death, resurrection, and ascension, Luke presents us with a portrait of a perfect, divine Savior in whom we can believe fully and securely.
As a well-traveled doctor and the only gentile writer in the New Testament, Luke set the story of Jesus’ birth in the context of the Roman Empire and the secular world of its day. Walking us through these opening chapters, Alistair Begg shows us the necessity of the incarnation: that Jesus had to be fully human and fully God to be able to fulfill the plan for our salvation.
