LUKE 21-22
DAY 203: JOURNEY THROUGH THE BIBLE IN A YEAR

Today’s journey through Luke takes us to Jesus being captured and presented to Pilate.

Ask God for His understanding of Luke 21-22. Read Luke 21-22. Let’s journey!

Luke is the only Gentile author of a Gospel and he was not an apostle of Jesus Christ. Luke was a well-educated doctor, who carried out careful research and gathered first hand accounts for his narrative, and traveled extensively with the Apostle Paul. It is thought that the Gospel of Luke was written shortly after the fall of Jerusalem in AD 70. In addition to writing the Gospel of Luke, he also wrote the book of Acts. Luke wrote in a way that would be accessible for all to read and includes some parables of Jesus Christ not found elsewhere in the Bible. Throughout his Gospel, Luke shows that Jesus fulfilled the prophecies of the Old Testament in His way, which was not the way that many, including the religions leader, thought the prophecies would be fulfilled. The same holds true today; we cannot place our expectations and beliefs on Jesus, rather we must first submit ourselves to Him in order to understand Him and His word.

Luke 21-22: Our journey today begins with the story of the Widow’s Offering, the subject of our focus verses. It continues with Jesus revealing the sign of His return to the apostles. Luke 22 depicts the Last Supper, Jesus’ capture by temple guards, and His presentation to the Sanhedrin. (Luke 21:1-22:71)

As you read today’s reading, make sure that you are not applying the standards and expectations of today’s world into Luke 21 and 22. Rather apply what is written to standards and expectations of today’s world. Are their areas of your life that are in contradiction to what you have read? Have you truly stopped and meditated upon the meaning of lessons taught in today’s reading? What have you learned?
