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 ten of this series, Alistair Begg focuses on Luke’s powerful description of Jesus’ last days with His disciples, betrayal, and arrest. Christ’s compassion and love for His friends and enemies was clear in His words and His actions. Even in Jesus’ suffering and betrayal, we see God’s sovereignty always at work. As His followers, we too will have trouble in the world—but we can trust that Jesus reigns over all and God is working everything for our good and His glory.
