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.
- Why is it important to know that Luke spoke to eyewitnesses when he wrote this account?
- What is unique about the conceptions of John, the Baptist and Jesus?
- 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.
- 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).
