Listen from:
“The beloved physician” and frequent companion of Paul acquaints us with our blessed Lord Jesus as the lowly Son of Man, amongst men, emphasizing the perfect moral beauties of His humanity as Jehovah visiting and sympathizing with His poor and needy people. He traces His human genealogy back to Adam, calls attention to His mother, His incarnation, His boyhood, His age as thirty, on the cross “expires” (23:46 lit.), and finally “carried up into heaven” (24:51).
“Written by a Gentile to a Gentile” (W.K.), as a man writes to a man, unfolding the grace of God in a real man, for all men, emphasizing the moral excellencies which suit God, and may be displayed in the new man by the power of the Holy Spirit as we see it in Luke’s Acts, its sequel.
According to the Spirit’s design its arrangement is moral rather than historical.
