Two Babies on the Way
Much of the first two chapters of Luke’s Gospel recounts the events surrounding the pregnancies of Elizabeth, the mother of John the Baptist and Mary, the mother of Jesus. A key theme here is the fulfilment of the long and winding story of God’s interaction with the people of Israel. During this Advent series, we will examine the stories of the arrival of these two babies, the reasons for the detail they contain and what they can help us to understand more about Jesus Christ as we approach the celebration of his birth at Christmas.
