07/03/2019 12:00 pm

Today's podcast for 'Reading Luke in Lent' looks at Luke, Chapter 3: 21-38.

Jesus prays through out Luke’s Gospel. Here, following his baptism, his prayer is answered by the heavens opening, the appearance of the Holy Spirit and the voice from heaven proclaiming that Jesus is the beloved Son of God who is also the servant of the Lord.

Jesus begins his ministry at the age of thirty (when David became king) and Luke lists his ancestry through David and Abraham to Adam, the son of God. Jesus is the new Adam who offers salvation to all.

'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.
