As we move from the arrival of the baby Jesus, we enter a long period of silence while he grows and develops. Only one event, when Jesus stays on to quizz the theologians in the temple courts of Jerusalem, is recorded for us. Followed by another twenty years of silence as Jesus grows, develops, learns a trade, runs a business, and takes his place in family and community. There's an encouragement for those of us who have to work for a living - God is with us, especially at work!
And then comes John the Baptist, to prepare the way. Luke is Introducing Jesus, showing us exactly how he's both God and a man at once. and how he's uniquely qualified to save the nations.
