Discussion for Luke 2

  • Masha
    as a mother who tends to be talkative, I am challenged by MARY'S example in verses 19 and 51 of Luke 2:she stored these things in her heart and often pondered them. that i may be more meditative than talkative!
    Mary and Joseph fulfilled all the requirements of the law for baby Jesus; and He lived a life of obedience and submission to His earthly parents(51).JESUS was the personification of grace

    I love Luke chapter 2 it tells of birth of Jesus Christ how he was born, life and salvation. Jesus was born in manager. He grew up learning about God at age 12 he minster to men. It was professed he was salvation. Jesus was born so we may have
    Eternal life.
