    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: 17 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and will gather the wheat into his garner; but the chaff he will burn with fire unquenchable.

    Luke surely was a man of great knowledge because he know how the people would react to unusual events and that word would be spread very rapidly which would ignite the explosion necessary for God plan to be implemented.

    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.
