Short Study of Book Of Luke Part 1

The Short Study of the Book Of Luke Part 1 Lesson Objective: To review the book of Luke and see how Christ is reflected in the eyes of Luke and to see how we can apply these events to our present day life. Scripture: Luke 1: 1-4 Forasmuch as many have taken in hand to set forth in order a declaration of those things which are most surely believed among us, 2 Even as they delivered them unto us, which from the beginning were eyewitnesses, and ministers of the word; 3 It seemed good to me also, having had perfect understanding of all things from the very first, to write unto thee in order, most excellent Theophilus, 4 That thou mightest know the certainty of those things, wherein thou hast been instructed. Introduction A. General information about the book of Luke a. One of the four Gospels i. Matthew written to the Jews to acknowledge Christ as King and to fulfill prophesy ( Disciple of Christ) ii. Mark written to demonstrate that Christ was the Son of God and the Messiah (Maybe John Mark who traveled with Paul ) iii. John written to show Christ as the Savior ( Disciple of Christ) iv. Luke written to show Christ as a man (probably physician and non Hebrew) b. Overview of the Book Of Luke i. Written to another non Hebrew Theophilus ii. The longest book in the New Testament iii. Gives more detail of similar events in the other Gospels iv. Luke traces lineage of Christ back to Adam v. Primary verse of Luke For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.” (Lk 19:10) c. Luke can be divided into 5 major sections i. Jesus’ humble origins (Lk 1–3) ii. Jesus brings hope to the oppressed and challenges those in power (Lk 4–9:17) iii. Jesus teaches how his kingdom is different than the world (Lk 9:18–19:27) iv. Jesus is killed, practicing what he preached (Lk 19:28–23:56) v. Jesus rises from the dead, validating his claims (Lk 24) B. Christ’ Birth Luke Chapters 1-3 a. The birth of John the Baptist i. Angel appears to Zacarias Luke 1: 12-15 1. And when Zacharias saw him, he was troubled, and fear fell upon him. But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharias: for thy prayer is heard; and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name John. And thou shalt have joy and gladness; and many shall rejoice at his birth. For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother's womb. 2. Zacharias cannot speak Luke 1: 19-20 a. And the angel answering said unto him, I am Gabriel, that stand in the presence of God; and am sent to speak unto thee, and to shew thee these glad tidings. And, behold, thou shalt be dumb, and not able to speak, until the day that these things shall be performed, because thou believest not my words, which shall be fulfilled in their season. 3. Elisabeth and Mary meet and get confirmation of all that they believe Luke 1: 34-37 Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God. And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren. For with God nothing shall be impossible. Luke 1: 41-43 And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost: And she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb. And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? b. Birth of Christ Luke 2: 4-7 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:) To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. i. Christ is recognized by Simeon and Anna 1. Luke 2: 25-38 c. . Christ in the Temple Luke 2: 46-50 And it came to pass, that after three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them, and asking them questions. And all that heard him were astonished at his understanding and answers. And when they saw him, they were amazed: and his mother said unto him, Son, why hast thou thus dealt with us? behold, thy father and I have sought thee sorrowing. And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father's business? And they understood not the saying which he spake unto them. Chapter 3 The ministry of John the Baptist and baptism of Christ Luke 3: 2-4 Annas and Caiaphas being the high priests, the word of God came unto John the son of Zacharias in the wilderness. And he came into all the country about Jordan, preaching the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins; As it is written in the book of the words of Esaias the prophet, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight. Luke 3: 16: John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire: Luke 3:21 Now when all the people were baptized, it came to pass, that Jesus also being baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened, And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased. Lineage of Christ Luke is based on Mary to Adam- reflects Christ humanity Matthew is based on Joseph to Abraham reflects legal authority to be king They both are the same from Abraham to David. Summary What can we learn from Zachariah and disbelief What can we learn from Elisebeth Luke 1: 24 What can we learn from Joseph What is different from John’s baptism and the baptism of Christ
