Christmas and St Luke’s Gospel

It is to St Luke’s wonderful gospel that many Christians turn as the year draws to a close and Christmas approaches, for it is to St
Luke that we owe the fullest account of the nativity.
Luke alone tells us the story of Mary and the angel’s visit to her, and has thus given the Church the wonderful Magnificat of Mary.
Luke alone tells us the story of Simeon’s hymn of praise, thus giving us the wonderful Nunc Dimmittis. Imagine an Anglican
evensong without the Nunc Dimmittis.
Luke alone tells us the story of how the angels appeared to the shepherds and how the shepherds then visited the infant Jesus.
So – imagine Christmas cards and nativity scenes every year without the shepherds  arriving to visit baby Jesus. Imagine school nativity plays without our children dressed as shepherds or sheep. So – thank you, Luke!
What makes it so amazing is that Luke was not a Jew! The man who wrote the fullest nativity story, and indeed more of the New
Testament than any other single person, was a Gentile!

Jesus and the Law of Moses

An expert in the law of Moses stood up and asked Jesus the question to see what he would say:-

“Teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to have eternal life?”

Jesus answered, “What is written in the Scriptures? How do you understand them?”

The man replied, “The Scriptures say, ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind. They also say, love your neighbours as much as you love yourself.'”

Jesus said, “You have given the right answer. You do this, and you will have eternal life.”

But the man wanted to show that he knew what he was talking about. So he asked Jesus, “Who are my neighbours?”

Jesus replied: “As a man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, robbers attacked him and grabbed everything he had. They beat him up and ran off, leaving him half dead.

A priest happened to be going down the same road but when he saw the man, he walked by on the other side.

Later a Temple helper came to the same place. But when he saw the man who had been beaten up, he also went by on the other side.

The man from Samaria (an enemy country) then came travelling along that road. When he saw the man, he felt sorry for him and went over to him.

He treated his wounds with olive oil and wine and bandaged them. Then he put the man on his own donkey and took him to an innkeeper to take care of him.

The next morning he gave the innkeeper two silver coins and said, “please take care of the man. If you spend more than this on him, I will pay you when I return.”

Then Jesus asked, “Which one of these three people was a real neighbour to the man who was beaten up by the robbers?”

The teacher answered, “The one who showed pity,” Jesus said, “Go and do the same!”

(Luke 10:25 to 37)
