Podcast: Gospel of Luke Nativity Story

It’s Christmas Eve!

In the wee small hours of the morning, after many hours of baking, I decided to make a podcast of the Nativity narrative via the Gospel of Luke. Perhaps some would like to have a listen while wrapping, baking, or whatever.

I used the New American translation – not my favorite, but it’s the one I had on hand. Still, this has been such a wonderful Advent that even with the less-than-lyrical translation, I actually welled up a few times while reading. I don’t think you can hear it, but the preparation we’ve done all through Advent really affected me. In a good way!

    Blessings to you, dear Elizabeth, and to your dear hubby, Older Son, Buster, and OS’s girlfriend, as well as to the rest of your extended family. You bring so much joy & sanity into my life, and I am grateful for all that you do! As the Brits would say, “Happy Christmas”!

    Luke has always been my favorite book of the New Testament, and the Christmas story my favorite passage. Alas, I am an old, hide-bound type, where nothing but the King James Version will do.

    I like Luke because, in addition to being a theologian, he is an historian. He takes these otherworldly, ethereal events and grounds them explicitly in a very real time and place. It is as if he shouts at us from the margins “See, this all HAPPENED! This is all REAL!”

    A very Merry Christmas to you, and my thanks for a year’s worth of reading enjoyment.
