Today's podcast for 'Reading Luke in Lent' looks at Luke, Chapter 12:49-13:9.

Reading through Luke the opening sentences will remind us of John the Baptist and his promise of Baptism. They also look forward to Luke’s volume the Acts of the Apostles when the Apostles will be baptised in the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. This looking back and forth emphasises the present moment. One the road to Jerusalem time is running out. Now is the time for repentence. Forgiveness can only follow true repentance which involves the ability to recognise the nature of our sin.

'Reading Luke in Lent' is a series of simple podcasts for the Lenten season offering a daily reading from St Luke - covering the Gospel from start to finish - from Ash Wednesday to the first week of Easter.
