    Luke places the birth of Jesus in "those days" ()—the days of King Herod's reign over all of Judea and Galilee ( BCE), when Caesar Augustus was the Roman emperor (27 BCE CE).

They were both righteous before God, blameless in their observance of all the Lord’s commandments and regulations. Luke CEB. The Gospel-writer Luke “portrays Jesus and his .

    Later, when John the Baptist enters his ministry, he is asked who he is. His answer: "I am the voice of one calling in the desert, 'Make straight the way of the Lord.'"

We usually want to get credit for the good we do (and our sins forgotten).   “Every bit as good,” replies Short, as he sticks the muzzle of his pistol against Storms’s heart and pulls the trigger.

The book of Luke documents how Jesus expands God's covenant and Kingdom. Jesus describes a new family of God that includes the poor, outcasts, and others to whom Jesus brings restoration and reverses their life circumstances.
