Product Description

.  Our text today is found in the Gospel according to Luke.  This Luke was a physician by profession and was very committed to making sure that his writings were thorough and accurate.  He’s attributed with writing both this gospel and the Book of Acts as well.  There are some special features about the Book of Luke as provided by the Preacher’s Outline and Sermon Bible.

  • Ø Luke is “The Gospel for Man” or “The Gospel for Gentiles.”  Luke shows that God is interested in all men everywhere, not just in the Jews;
  • Ø Luke is the Gospel of Salvation.  Luke uses the words “salvation” and “Savior” or their various forms many more times than any of the other Gospel writers; and,
  • Ø Luke is “The Gospel of the Outcasts and Sinners.”  Luke tells of the feast Matthew held for tax collectors and sinners; of the woman anointing Jesus’ feet with her tears and wiping them with her hair; he alone tells of the Prodigal Son; and many of his parables center around the outcasts.

Here in our text we find some people making their way to the grave of Jesus to anoint His body with prepared spices as was the custom of the day.  His body was not anointed prior to placing Him in the tomb because His crucifixion and death did not allow time for this to take place as the Sabbath was fast approaching.  When they got to the tomb they found that the stone had been rolled away that He was not there.  Then came the announcement, “He is not here, but is risen!” As we examine our text, let’s see just how significant God’s Empty Promises are to us.
