Gospel of Matthew shows the kingship of Jesus. Luke shows Jesus as offering salvation to all humanity – Jew and Gentile alike. In the Bible, the story of Christmas begins with an invitation. Luke invites us into a different time and a different place, one full of fascinating people and stories. These people were anticipating a special event. They were waiting for their Savior, who was to appear in the form of a little baby named Jesus.
