Faith: trust that has been tested and tried! Welcome to the gospel of Luke.

Season 3, episode 63
48 min / Published

Episode 63 - Today, we crack open the pages of the gospel of Luke. What were the good physician’s intentions as he picked up his quill to write down what he had discovered about the facts of the life of Jesus Christ?
He introduces several key players early on. They are familiar to us. Zechariah, Elizabeth, Mary, Joseph, John, the angel Gabriel.

She also invites you to become partner with Gospel Spice Ministries (all donations are tax-deductible in the USA). Check out gospelspice.com/donate for the details!

Luke challenges us, through them, to press on, to press in, and to press up. He helps us see that faith is trust that has been tested and tried.

Luke gives us places where the daily touches the divine, those touchpoints to embrace our Lord in the mundane.

This introduction session to the gospel of Luke was recorded at a large gathering Stephanie had the privilege to teach earlier this year. You will hear the familiar rustling of Bible pages, the occasional cough and laughter of a real, live audience. A welcome sound in our days of remote fellowship, that we hope you will embrace!

Stephanie closes this episode by beckoning you into the Gospel Spice journey of deeper intimacy with Christ your Lord.
