Commentary from Pastor Michael White:

…that you may know the certainty of those things in which you were instructed. – Luke 1:4

Luke was not recording an analogy. He was not recording a metaphor. He was not penning fiction! He was recording non-fiction: verifiable evidence of everything Jesus had done as confirmed by multiple witnesses.

Luke was a reporter. As a physician by trade, Luke knew what it meant to gather credible evidence. He knew the importance of proving beyond the shadow of a doubt that everything the apostles claimed to have seen had actually taken place.

The Book of Luke, along with the rest of New Testament Scripture, was never meant to be interpreted as allegory. We should never relegate Scripture to the fiction aisle in the halls of our beliefs. What Jesus said, He did; and what He did, He asks you to do in His name.

Will you take Him at His word?

Prayer:

Father, help me to have absolute confidence that Scripture is true! I know Jesus is who He says He is; and I know I am who He says I am. Help me to believe it with all my heart, in Jesus’ name.
