This is the first of a multi-part sermon series by Dr. Thiel covering the Gospel account credited to Luke. This sermon covers chapters 1 & 2. Dr. Thiel explains some controversies about the author of this Gospel and some controversies related to the census in Luke 2. He also discusses issues associated with John the Baptist and his father Zacharias and not accepting when God answers prayer. He also explains verses that some claim are in the Bible about Jesus’ mother Mary. Dr. Thiel explains from a couple of sources why late December could not be when Jesus was born.
