A historical approach

March 18

Daily Bible Reading: Luke 1:1 – 23

Verse of the Day: Luke 1:1 – 4 – “Forasmuch as many have taken in hand to draw up a narrative concerning those matters which have been fulfilled among us, even as they delivered them unto us, who from the beginning were eyewitnesses and ministers of the word, it seemed good to me also, having traced the course of all things accurately from the first, to write unto thee in order, most excellent Theophilus; that thou mightest know the certainty concerning the things wherein thou wast instructed.”

Today we begin a 50-day study in the Gospel of Luke. Luke, a doctor, wrote this letter with the Greeks in mind. He covers the coming, seeking, and saving Savior. He gives us a historical look at Jesus and His ministry. Written around 59 to 63 A.D., to a man named Theophilus, it is the only Gospel with a sequel. Luke continues the history in the book of Acts.

Prayer: Jesus, we seek to see your life and ministry through the historical writings of Luke. Father, open our eyes that we may see Him and his purpose of coming, seeking, and saving.
