Discussion for Luke 1

  • A disciple
    "And they had no child, because that Elisabeth was barren, and they both were now well stricken in years." Difficulties and sorrows and being deprived of the natural comforts and good things of this life, did not keep Zechariah and Elizabeth from loving the LORD and walking faithfully with Him; and they found out one day, how God had a special plan for them: to be the parents of John the Baptist!
  • A disciple
    "And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless." God has given us commandments and statutes for living good and holy before Him. The reason He gave us commandments, is for us to do them, that we may live and be blessed. We have all heard the devil's lies, saying that "no one can keep the commandments;" this is to get us to sin!
  • A disciple
    "...most excellent Theophilus," I found out, by reading in Josephus, that Theophilus was the High Priest at the time Luke wrote his books about Jesus coming in the flesh, and the subsequent divine workings begun upon the Disciples after His ascension and glory. The sons of Aaron were charged with keeping of the Holy Things of God for Israel; and it was necessary to give them the Completed Witness.
  • A disciple
    "Forasmuch as many have taken in hand to set forth in order a declaration of those things which are most surely believed among us, even as they delivered them unto us, which from the beginning were eyewitnesses, and ministers of the word;" When we are really saved and have the Spirit of Christ; then we are made His witnesses by having been exercised in His grace through experience and proving.

    I WAS TRULY BLESS BY YR WORD TODAY.

    In verses 6 and 7 Elizabeth was barren, but this doesn't mean she didn't have God's favor because in verse 6 she is described as righteous. Unfortunate circumstances happen to good people sometimes.
