Tale of Two Birth Announcements

In our previous message, we looked at the opening words of Luke’s gospel. One of the statements he made about his gospel was that he wrote an “orderly account.” One way we see Luke write in an orderly way is how he sets stories and scenes alongside of each other so that you naturally compare and contrast them. In this message, we will look at the parallel birth announcements of John the Baptist and Jesus. In doing so, we will see the faithfulness of God in fulfilling his promises.
