    V. 46 - proves that there are no 'loner' Christians. Jesus Himself gave us this example (Heb. 10:25) at the age of 12. And verifying scriptures are: Matt.12:9; 13:54; Mk.1:21, 29; Lk.4:38; 6:6; Jn.6:59; 12:42; and on and on. Rom. 10:14 - How can they hear without a preacher; 1 Tim. 4:14 - a Preacher (pastor) has hands laid on him by Holy Ghost filled men for God's spirit to 'ordain' him.

    Luke 2: Although Joseph and Mary were in Galilee, their first-born Jesus was prophesied to be born in Bethlehem, several miles away. God made it happen through Augustus' decree on taxation. God's words are yeah and amen. No jot goes unfulfilled. This chapter reports the birth of our Our Lord and Saviour Jesus and His early days. God made man. Praise God on high.

    Jesus was not a hypocrite, Matt. 23:3; He LIVED what He taught.
