Mike D's comment about verse 4 on 3/25/2015, 6:08am...

Theophilus had an understanding of the apostles teaching and may have even been taught by Paul himself. What Luke is saying here is you can take what I have written to the bank, it 's the real deal.

 


Mike D's comment about verse 3 on 3/25/2015, 6:00am...

Luke is making note that what he is sending Theophilus was from years of research, from many different sources. Luke had access to Paul for over two year we find in Acts 24 and Phillip in Acts 21. In that time he would be able to meet many of the Apostles and others who walked with Christ.

 


Mike D's comment about verse 2 on 3/25/2015, 5:43am...

vs.2 even as they, that would be the Apostles and other disciples. Remember Jesus had many more disciples over the 12 original disciples. Luke gathers the information both written and orally from the men who walked with Christ from the beginning of His ministry. Luke was not an eyewitness that he eludes to however he has done everything possible to put this writing together that is consistent and aligned with those who actually walked with Jesus.

 


Mike D's comment about verse 16 on 3/21/2015, 7:03am...

Vs. 16, John would be the forerunner for the long awaited Messiah. He would bring a message to repent for Lord 's Christ is coming.

 


Mike D's comment about verse 15 on 3/21/2015, 6:58am...

In verses 15,16,and 17 Gabriel gives information about this special child, first of his character and then second, of his purpose or ministry. In verse 15 it states he shall be great in the sight of the Lord. Jesus says later that none born was greater than John. It goes on to say he will be different from the rest, that he will abstain from any wine or strong drink. There is something also that is stated in verse 15 about John that isn 't said about any man in the entire Bible, and that is that he would be filled with the Holy Spirit before birth, in his mother 's womb.

 


Mike D's comment about verse 14 on 3/21/2015, 6:43am...

Gabriel begins in this verse to comfort Zacharias that the thing he has long prayed for is about to be answered. The reproach of being childless is about to be removed and others will rejoice with them at his birth.

 


Mike D's comment about verse 13 on 3/21/2015, 6:32am...

We find from vs. 19 that the angel is non other than Gabriel. In all cases when an angel comes with a message we see fear struck in the heart of men, which is followed with the comment from the messenger, fear not. He is given special revelation from God that Elisabeth will conceive and bear a son, and then in verse 13, even gives the name that this child should be called, John.

 


Mike D's comment about verse 12 on 3/20/2015, 6:48am...

Zacharias 's response is no different than any other person who found themselves in the presence of an angel. Most fall on their face in fear. When ever an angel is visible there seems to have been an unmistakable features about them. At times their clothing was brilliant white. Whatever it is it gets men 's attention.

 


Mike D's comment about verse 11 on 3/20/2015, 6:37am...

There has been a silent period form the book of Malachi to the time of Christ of about four hundred years. God has through the Old Testament used angels in the affairs of men. They are to minister and aid men and are never to be worshipped. That alone is reserved for God. At times they have taken human form an always a male in scripture. Other times they are invisible working behind the scenes. This is the first time in the New Testament where we see an angel.

 


Mike D's comment about verse 10 on 3/20/2015, 6:24am...

Being a multitude present shows this probably happened on the Sabbath.

 


Mike D's comment about verse 7 on 3/20/2015, 6:14am...

Having children was a big deal in this time. Having a male child seemed even bigger. They had both wanted children for a long time and probably felt the reproach of the others who were able to do so. Their consistent prayers were an indication of their faith, believing God for the impossible. Even at that probably all hope was passing with the years as we see Zacharias unbelief when greeted by the angel.

 


Mike D's comment about verse 6 on 3/20/2015, 6:02am...

Here we see John the Baptist 's parents were very godly people. First I would consider is a marriage where both are believers and worship and serve God, you have a strong fulfilling marriage. Second is that your children will follow more often than not. Truly they had the blessing of God.

 


Egbo eucharia ndudi's comment about verse 45 on 3/14/2015, 12:28pm...

luke1:45.is a call to activate our faith in GOD,faith works in conjunction with hope nd believe.now,faith is the substance of things hoped for,the evidence of things not seen.believing that what is not visible or predictable is a reality of faith in action .therefore ,the force of faith you put in motion,will accelerate your expectation to manifestation .

 


Esther's comment on 3/12/2015, 12:00am...

The Angel that made the birth announcement remained unnamed.

 


Andrew Guah's comment about verse 9 on 2/22/2015, 3:19am...

Divine purpose s ,this was not luck So to speak.The falling of the lot,I believe,that it was divine.This was not accidental. It was God.When ever that time comes, it is.You can substitute, unless the need for substation is evident. God bless.

 


Insight 777's comment on 2/20/2015, 9:11am...

Verse 35, Perhaps the conceived child is called a "holy thing " because he is an individual that is unlike any other. His power and glory can not be defined, described or completely understood. No one knows or can define the absolute wisdom of the Divine Mind. Man is less than God in all ways yet this human child will be given the power, glory and wisdom of God. There is no way to define the undefinable. The scope of this union of God and mankind so immense the conceived child is called a "holy thing ". The Spirit of God dwells in Jesus and he is made perfect. The abiding consciousness of spiritual peace in everlasting life is born. "Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts. " - Col.3v15

 


Lilian's comment on 2/10/2015, 1:23am...

Everything is possible with Christ as God is so faithful to his promises. We must keep God 's commandments and listens to his word as our heavenly manna that we need to be feed. From his word we will have life, peace, joy and our spirit is connected with the Holy Spirit which this is the way that our Spirit our Reborn by inviting the Holy Spirit, we are saved unless our spirit is reborn. Jesus loves you and fix your eyes to Jesus

 


Sherry gartside's comment on 1/29/2015, 3:32pm...

Very good for that chapter. If it keeps going it get harder for me to under stand it.

 


Okoronkwo Esther Mbung's comment about verse 37 on 1/22/2015, 11:07pm...

Nothing is impossible with God.God can do everything. He makes the impossibility Possible.

 


Motdaugrnds's comment on 1/21/2015, 9:12am...

This chapter is part of what I 've been studying in regard to the birth of Jesus as it relates to the birth of John the Baptist. There is apparently 6 months difference as to the times of their birth with John having been born first. Some of my other searches have told me John was born in the spring. I know Jesus was crucified in the spring, which was when He was 33-1 2 yrs old I believe. Can anyone help me understand the time-line here?

May the Lord bless all generation whoever call on his name shall have everlasting life

 


Adelle Shemwell's comment on 1/07/2015, 2:09pm...

Luke was an eye witness of the life and work of our Lord Jesus. He writes what he himself witnessed of Him. His words are to be received and believed. After Mary had conceived by the Holy Ghost she visited Elizabeth. John, in his mother 's womb, recognized the Messiah and leapt in his mother 's womb. She then was filled with the Holy Ghost and recognized that Mary was carrying the Messiah and praised Him. What a Mighty God we serve! Praise Him, Praise Him.

 


Andrea's comment on 1/06/2015, 4:11pm...

Our God is a promising God.

 


MICHAEL ADENI's comment about verse 45 on 1/01/2015, 12:47am...

God is not a respecter of people, what he makes happen for one he makes happen for another. As we believe and apply God 's word in any area of concern in our life, that concern become a testimony. This is the performance, this is our believe, this is our faith and the assurance we have in our GOD.

 


Christian Nwankwo's comment on 12/28/2014, 12:01am...

Question Why did Elizabeth prefer John to Zacharias as the name of her son
