Luke 1-2 (The Daily Walk Bible).

Luke 2:11 gives us an important glimpse into the ministry of Jesus. He is a prophet (Christ), priest (Savior), and king (Lord)!

Mary is a wonderful example of faithfulness and motherhood. We are reminded of the agony she lived as foretold in Simeon’s prophecy: “and a sword will pierce your very soul” (2:35).

Chapters 1-2 are a constant reminder of Jesus’ uniqueness. He is the Lord, the Son of the Most High, the son of David, the Savior, the Messiah, the Christ, and the glory of Israel! The incarnation is amazing and bewildering. When did Jesus truly know who He was? Well, at the very least he knew it at twelve, since He was “about my Father’s business” (alternate translation of 2:49)!
