Luke Chapter 1

Host Brian Jeffreys

Season 3, episode 1
35 min / Published

Luke introduces his account about what happened through the time of Jesus. 

It was in the time of Herod, King of Judea. Where there was a Priest named Zechariah serving his time in the temple, and his wife Elizabeth. But they were old, and Elizabeth was not able to conceive children. On duty, chosen by lot, Zechariah was in the temple to burn incense and the people assembled outside to pray and worship. The angel Gabriel appeared to him, and when Zechariah saw him was started and gripped with fear. 

Gabriel told him that his wife, Elizabeth will bear a son, and he was to call him John. The angel, who was Gabriel, told Zechariah that he stood in the presence of God, and spoke to him to tell him the good news. Because of Zechariah's lack of faith, he would be silent until the baby was born.

When Elizabeth was sixth months pregnant, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee. Mary, a virgin, pledged to be married to Joesph (descendant of David). Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. But the angel told her not to be afraid. For God had found favor in her. The angel told her that she will bore a son, and are to call him Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and reign over Jacob's descendants forever. His kingdom will never end. The angel told Mary, who wondered how she could because she was still a virgin. The angel answered that the Holy Spirit will come on you, and the Most High will overshadow her. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God.
