Sean Daehn Luke 1: The first chapter in the holy gospel of St. Luke is a bit different. Luke is the only gospel with a formal introduction, in which the author explains his methodology and purpose. It states that many others have already undertaken to set down an orderly account of the events that have been fulfilled among us, just as they were handed on to us by those who from the beginning were eyewitnesses and servants of the word. In Luke, it tells about how an angel went to the Virgin Mary and told her about how she was going to have a holy child and how this child was to be called Jesus. Also in the Gospel of Luke it talks about the birth John the Baptist and how it was foretold. John’s father, Zechariah, was serving as a priest, and while he was burning incense an angel came to him and said, “Your prayer has been granted, Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you are to give him the name John.” Also, Mary visited Elizabeth in the hill country of Judea and when Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, that her baby had leaped in her womb and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. Words: 203 Luke 2: The second chapter in the Holy Gospel of Luke includes the most important thing; the birth of Jesus Christ. A census was to be taken of the entire Roman Empire. This was issued by the ruler of the time, Cesar Augustus.
