Do you know that movies are not made with just one camera? Several cameras are shooting the same scene from various angles.
The 4 gospels are like that. They all bring different dimensions to the same story.
Luke is writing to a Roman official Theophilus who probably became a Jesus follower. Luke’s account is a thorough documentation to help Theophilus be certain, of what he was taught and, in some ways, present a report that authenticates this new Faith.
We looked at how a Priest handled Hope. Today, in our frame are two people little spoken of regarding the Christmas story but very important to our theme and to show how Jesus’ birth was not just foretold, and there was nothing random about it. We will look at how a Prophet and a devout Person handled hope.
