Bible Study: Luke, Chapter Four
Transcript: Today we are going to continue our interactive Bible study and we are going to cover Luke Chapter 4. I would encourage you to follow along in your own Bible, highlight and make notes in the margins. Don’t be afraid to underline things in your Bible. It is a study book, not a sacred artifact. So make it yours.
To be honest, today I use mostly digital copies on the computer, phone or tablet and let them read it to me, or listen to audio bibles. Because I can do that in the car while driving or while in bed with the lights out. Try using your paper Bible for that. At night I have a homemade pillow speaker that I made using tiny audio transducers and I play the Bible chapters on random shuffle. It gives me something to think about when I can’t sleep and I don’t get bogged down too long in Leviticus.
After the meeting today, or sometime this week, please take the matching Quiz on Luke Chapter 4 that I have prepared on the website. It is on the right hand side and matches this teaching. Thanks to all that have taken last weeks quiz. It looks like participation is growing. Last week we had around 30 participants, and 10 people scored a perfect 100. Let’s get started:
Luke Chapter 4 WEB: 1. Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness 2 for forty days, being tempted by the devil. He ate nothing in those days. Afterward, when they were completed, he was hungry.
In chapter 3, Jesus was baptized by John in the Jordan river and when He came up, the Holy Spirit descended on Him like a dove, and remained on Him. This was a sign from God to John that Jesus was the Messiah. On the wings of a pure white dove, God sent His unfailing love.
This happened near the Sea of Galilee. Jesus grew up in Nazareth, traveled to the Jordan river to hear John, was baptized by him, the Holy Spirit descended on Him, and then He went into the desert area. The words wilderness and desert are used for this place, an uninhabited area. Read more at: www.refreshinghope.org
