Listen to him! The Gospel of Luke (1:1-9:36)

Know Your Bible (KYB) groups from around Australia are about to commence the newest KYB study—Listen to him! The Gospel of Luke. 

KYB uses a question and answer learning style, reinforced by group discussion, summaries, and review notes.  Our straightforward approach is designed to help all people engage with the richness of God’s word for themselves. 

What does this study cover?

This study of Luke 1:1-9:36 covers the early part of Jesus’ life and ministry.  It begins with the background to his birth, preparation for ministry, and Jesus’ early teaching and miracles in Galilee.  It moves on to the issue of who Jesus is, what do his miracles and teaching say about him.  It reaches a climax when: 

  • Peter recognises Jesus as Messiah.
  • God the Father declares who Jesus is and how we should respond to him: “this is my son, whom I have chosen, listen to him” (Luke 9:35)

What difference does it make?

In the Gospel of Luke, we see Jesus.  Take time to soak up this picture of who Jesus is–God’s chosen Messiah, Saviour and Lord, his Son come to earth.  Through Jesus, we see the faithfulness of our great God in coming to his people and fulfilling his promises.  God has not changed, we can rely on his faithfulness today. 

Do you sometimes have lurking doubts about the story of Jesus?  Look at all the evidence Luke presents!  Rest assured: this is the historical record of real events, real people, and the real Messiah:  Jesus Christ.
