A tour of Luke 2 with Ken Boa.
Not only is Luke the longest of the four gospels, but it is also the longest book in the New Testament. When this gospel is combined with Acts, it constitutes 28% of the New Testament. Luke is also the most historically detailed of the gospels, and his refined literary Greek is rivaled only by Hebrews in the New Testament. His extensive vocabulary and wide range of expressions enhance this book. The four hymns in chapters 1 and 2 have added immensely to Christian worship (these are the Magnificat of Mary in 1:46-55, the Benedictus of Zechariah in 1:67-79, the Gloria in Excelsis of the heavenly host in 2:14, and the Nunc Dimittis of Simeon in 2:28-32).
READING of LUKE 2
Lord, I thank You for the good news of great joy in Christ the Lord, our Savior, Redeemer, Advocate, and King.
