Luke 2Series: 2023 Bible Reading
And now, a minute with the Word…
Luke began his well-organized account by explaining the conceptions of Jesus Christ and John the Baptist, in chapter 1. In chapter 2, he briefly summarizes Jesus' birth and the arrival of shepherds directed by angels. Prophecies and prayers celebrate His dedication at the temple. After briefly losing track of a twelve-year-old Jesus in the temple, Jesus' parents take Him home to Nazareth. There, He grows up relatively normally. We read in vs 52 that Jesus increased in Wisdom and in Stature, and in favor wih God and man.
