Discussion for Luke 1

  • Susan
    Theophillus was not high priest at that time.
  • A disciple
    " But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity." If there is not a true repentance, and verifiable thorough-going conversion; if there is not an absolute and complete ceasing of sinning and turning one's back on the world, the flesh and the devil; all the church and Scripture quoting in the world will not get you into the kingdom of heaven!
  • 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 have been instructed." Theophilus was the High Priest at the time; and it was to confirm the fulfillment of the Scriptures, to those ordained to be the Keepers of the Holy Testimony.
  • A disciple
    "Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God." "..every spirit that confesses not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God" 1 Jn. 4:1-6.

    ******* LUKE 1:37 FOR WITH GOD NOTHING SHALL BE IMPOSSIBLE *******JOHN 5:14 AFTERWARD JESUS FINDETH HIM IN THE TEMPLE AND SAID UNTO HIM --- BEHOLD THOU ART MADE WHOLE SIN NO MORE LEST A WORSE THING COME UNTO THEE --- JOHN 8:11 SHE SAID NO MAN MY LORD AND JESUS SAID UNTO HER NEITHER DO I CONDEMN THEE --- GO AND SIN NO MORE ---

    V. 3 - " ..... most excellent Theophulis; v.4 - "That thou mightiest know the certainty of those things, wherein thou hast been instructed." "excellent" sounds like perhaps he was someone of the Temple, but Luke does not say, so neither can we state it as fact. But, he was a convert to Christianity of Luke's, We can know that much as per Luke's words to him. cont.
