As a teaser for our upcoming church series on Luke’s gospel (from chapter 1:1 to 4:30), here is a wordle of the English Standard Version of these words.
I didn’t expect son to be quite so prominent in this section of the gospel. Having seen the image, however, it makes perfect sense. Both John (the baptist) and his cousin Jesus were amazing an unexpected sons to their mothers. With Jesus also announced as a son with more significant ‘family connections’ (Son of David, Son of God).
I pray that the Spirit will greatly encourage and challenge us as we read Luke together on the run up to Easter this year.
