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.
We have been looking at how the Old Testament prophecies regarding the Messiah (Christ) were coming to fulfillment, as we studied Luke 1. Today, we will look at what was recorded in regards to the actual birth of Christ Jesus in Luke 2:1-20. We will ponder together the where, how, when, what, and why Jesus’ birth took place.
