Thankful to start a new series of messages through the Gospel of Luke. I have been blessed by the commentaries I am reading through this study already and they have been influential in this message and others (Luke: New Covenant Commentary by Diane Chen; Luke – Belief – A Theological Commentary on the Bible by Justo Gonzalez; Baker Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament by Darrell L. Bock; Matthew Henry’s Commentary on Luke; Sermons by Tim Keller, John Piper, Jahill Richards, Tony Evans, Sinclair Ferguson, R.C. Sproul and others). I believe God blesses the study of His Word by His Spirit and uses that study to teach me and to also teach me through what He has taught others. I don’t always cite those who I am quoting, paraphrasing, or influenced by – unless it seems to help the communication of the truth in the message. I do not want any personal glory and I am very thankful for those who God has used before to teach me. It is my prayer that this study will be a blessing to others as well.
