This morning I was preparing for the upcoming week of Advent 2: The Candle of Peace. Our two main texts are Luke 1:68-79 and Luke 3:1-6. I was reminded of some work that I did in these texts the last time I preached through Luke. They are appropriate to repost here for two reasons:
- We will preach on the Luke text this week, and
- We will preach on Matthew in the New Year.
These posts compare Luke’s version of Jesus’ baptism to Matthew’s version. Enjoy!
