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.
In volume three of this series, Alistair Begg focuses on the lordship of Christ and the contrast between the world’s values and those of the believer’s life. Jesus’ early ministry and teaching focused on a wide range of themes, including the Sabbath, prayer, evangelism, mercy, love, forgiveness, dependence on God, obedience, and gratitude. Through it all, though, we catch glimpses of the Son of Man as He continues the journey that will lead him to Calvary.
