The book called Luke in the Bible, was written by a Gentile believer named Luke, who was a close associate of the Apostle Paul. He set out to carefully investigate the truth concerning Jesus Christ, using the eyewitness accounts of those who were with and knew Jesus and His ministry. His intent in writing this Gospel was so that his readers would know the truth regarding Jesus and what they have been taught concerning Him. It is our hope in studying this Gospel, that we too would better understand the truth concerning Jesus, so that we may better know Him and make Him known to others.
Last Sunday, we saw what preparations were made in the coming of the Christ by looking at the account of these preparations given in Luke 1:26-38. Today, we see the continuation of that narrative as we look together at Luke 1:39-56. We will learn from Mary's humble example of how to live with expectancy, joy and hope in Christ's coming.
