Discussion for Luke 1

  • Peter A. Okebukola
    The great King of Heaven-Jesus, is preparing to come down to this lowly, filthy, sins-soaked earth on His mission of redemption. Mary is blessed to be the channel of His birth and Elisabeth to bring forth John, the precursor prophet. All these plans have been in place since the beginning of time. Praise God.

    Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth ? I tell you , Nay; but rather division. Luke12:51. Jesus will separate the bad from the good. Jesus wants no part of evil . I really understand that verse.
  • A disciple
    "It seemed good to me also, having had perfect understanding of all things from the very first, to write unto you in order, most excellent Theophilus, that you might know the certainty of those things, wherein you hast been instructed." I found something very interesting in Josephus; where he says that after Joseph Caiaphas, Jonathan became High Priest; and after Jonathan, his brother Theophilus.
