Luke in Lent 2: 1-19

07/03/2019 12:00 pm

Today's podcast for 'Reading Luke in Lent' looks at Luke, Chapter 2: 1-19.

Just as in Chapter 1, Luke compared Jesus with John the Baptist, in Chapter 2 he compares Jesus with Caesar Augustus. What sort of king is Jesus? Luke emphasises his links with David. Not David the warrior but the shepherd boy (Bethlehem is where Samuel discovers him).

It is to shepherds that the angels appears to announce Jesus’ birth — good news for all people. The passage with Mary treasuring all that she has seen and heard and pondering them in her heart.

'Reading Luke in Lent' is a series of simple podcasts for the Lenten season offering a daily reading from St Luke - covering the Gospel from start to finish - from Ash Wednesday to the first week of Easter.
