This week we begin a conversation about the Gospel of Luke. Read through Luke, chapter 1, gather your friends and family, and have a conversation about what you’ve read. The short video will begin the conversation, and I’ve added a few questions to help facilitate even more thought. Give a listen.

  1. Why is it important to know that Luke spoke to eyewitnesses when he wrote this account?
  2. What is unique about the conceptions of John, the Baptist and Jesus?
  3. Compare both Mary’s and Zechariah’s songs with themes from the Book of Psalms: God considers the plight of the humble, deliverance from enemies, and God’s remembrance of His covenant with Israel.
  4. Discuss the things said about John by the angel (verses 13-17) and Zechariah (verses 76-79). In Matthew 11:13-14, Jesus links John to the prophecy about Elijah (Malachi 4:5-6).
