5 Stories From The Bible From The Gospel Of Luke
Here are 5 stories from the Bible from the Gospel of Luke.
Luke the Physician was also Luke the Historian. That’s not only my thoughts, but the thoughts of other Bible scholars too. Luke, in writing to Theophilus, states that “it seemed good to me also, having followed all things closely for some time past, to write an orderly account for you, most excellent Theophilus,” (Luke 1:3). This means that Luke wrote this gospel so “that [Theophilus] may have certainty concerning the things you have been taught” (Luke 1:4). He also wrote very accurate historical details so that we too “may have certainty concerning the things” we have been taught.
The Angel of the Lord once appeared to some shepherds who were abiding in the fields, and he said to them, “I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord” (Luke 2:10b-11). That announcement changed the world. Never before had God become Man in human flesh (John 1:14), but it was for the purpose of redeeming a people unto Himself, and that is only possible through Jesus Christ (John 6:44; Acts 4:12).
One example that proves Jesus is God and cannot be sin or be tempted by sin is the account of the Temptation in the Wilderness. Here, Satan throws His best three punches at Jesus, but He resists them all. He does so by quoting, in context, the Word of God, rebuffing the Devil. The Lord says, “It is written” three times (Luke 4:4, 8, 10) to Satan, and that can help us resist temptation so that we might not sin (Psalm 119:11).
The Good Samaritan
The Parable of the Good Samaritan must have astounded the disciples and the other Jews because the Samaritans were considered half-breeds, and unclean in their sight and in God’s, but Jesus throws them a curve. The Lord tells how the priest and the Levite, supposedly “holy men of God,” bypassed the wounded man, but the Samaritan, of all people, stopped to help the man, so Jesus asked them, “Which of these three, do you think, proved to be a neighbor to the man who fell among the robbers” (Luke 10:36)? It was obviously the one they despised…the Samaritan; so Jesus says that they should “go, and do likewise” (Luke 10:37b).
He’s Not Here!
When the women from Galilee came to the tomb of Christ to anoint the Lord’s body (Luke 24:1), they heard an angel tell them, “He is not here, but has risen. Remember how he told you, while he was still in Galilee” (Luke 24:6). That’s news beyond “good.” Since He’s been raised from the dead, we too will be raised someday in new bodies with Christ (1 Corinthians 15).
