Bible Commentary for Luke 1:4

Wesley's Notes for Luke 1:4


1:3 To write in order - St. Luke describes in order of time; first, The Acts of Christ; his conception, birth, childhood, baptism, miracles, preaching, passion, resurrection, ascension: then, The Acts of the Apostles. But in many smaller circumstances he does not observe the order of time. Most excellent Theophilus - This was the appellation usually given to Roman governors. Theophilus (as the ancients inform us) was a person of eminent quality at Alexandria. In #Acts 1:1|, St. Luke does not give him that title. He was then probably a private man. After the preface St. Luke gives us the history of Christ, from his coming into the world to his ascension into heaven.

1:5 The course of Abia - The priests were divided into twenty - four courses, of which that of Abia was the eighth, #1Ch 24:10|. Each course ministered in its turn, for seven days, from Sabbath to Sabbath. And each priest of the course or set in waiting, had his part in the temple service assigned him by lot.

1:6 Walking in all the moral commandments, and ceremonial ordinances, blameless - How admirable a character! May our behaviour be thus unblamable, and our obedience thus sincere and universal!


Discussion for Luke 1:4

  • Mike D on Luke 1:4
    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.
