5 LUKE 3: In the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiber'i-us Caesar, Pontius Pilate being governor of Judea, and Herod being tetrarch of Galilee, and his brother Philip tetrarch of the region of Iturae'a and Trachoni'tis, and Lysa'ni-as tetrarch of Abile'ne, 2. in the high-priesthood of Annas and Ca'iaphas, the word of God came to John the son of Zechari'ah in the wilderness; 3. and he went into all the region about the Jordan, preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. 4. As it is written in the book of the words of Isaiah the prophet, "The voice of one crying in the wilderness: Prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight. 5. Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be brought low, and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough ways shall be made smooth; 6. and all flesh shall see the salvation of God." 7. He said therefore to the multitudes that came out to be baptized by him, "You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come?
6 LUKE 3: Bear fruits that befit repentance, and do not begin to say to yourselves, `We have Abraham as our father'; for I tell you, God is able from these stones to raise up children to Abraham. 9. Even now the axe is laid to the root of the trees; every tree therefore that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire." 10. And the multitudes asked him, "What then shall we do?" 11. And he answered them, "He who has two coats, let him share with him who has none; and he who has food, let him do likewise." 12. Tax collectors also came to be baptized, and said to him, "Teacher, what shall we do?" 13. And he said to them, "Collect no more than is appointed you." 14. Soldiers also asked him, "And we, what shall we do?" And he said to them, "Rob no one by violence or by false accusation, and be content with your wages. 15. As the people were in expectation, and all men questioned in their hearts concerning John whether he was the Christ
7 LUKE 3: John answered them all, "I baptize you with water; but he who is mightier than I is coming, the thong of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie; he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire. 17. His winnowing fork is in his hand, to clear his threshing floor, and to gather the wheat into his granary, but the chaff he will burn with unquenchable fire." 18. So, with many other exhortations, he preached good news to the people. 19. But Herod the tetrarch, who had been reproved by him for Hero'di-as, his brother's wife, and for all the evil things that Herod had done, 20. added this to them all, that he shut up John in prison. 21. Now when all the people were baptized, and when Jesus also had been baptized and was praying, the heaven was opened, 22. and the Holy Spirit descended upon him in bodily form, as a dove, and a voice came from heaven, "Thou art my beloved Son; with thee I am well pleased."
9 LUKE 3: In the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiber'i-us Caesar, Pontius Pilate being governor of Judea, and Herod being tetrarch of Galilee, and his brother Philip tetrarch of the region of Iturae'a and Trachoni'tis, and Lysa'ni-as tetrarch of Abile'ne, 2. in the high-priesthood of Annas and Ca'iaphas, the word of God came to John the son of Zechari'ah in the wilderness; 3. and he went into all the region about the Jordan, preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. 4. As it is written in the book of the words of Isaiah the prophet, "The voice of one crying in the wilderness: Prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight. 5. Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be brought low, and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough ways shall be made smooth; 6. and all flesh shall see the salvation of God." 7. He said therefore to the multitudes that came out to be baptized by him, "You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come?
10 LUKE 3:1-7 / 1 John s prophetic mission occurs within human history and impacts human history. God works within history and history is his story Plausible connection with the Essen community: Isaiah 40 is quoted in their Rule Book and to enter the Covenant was for them to enter into water (1QS 5:8,13) For the Essenes, contact with outsiders, even Palestinian Jews not of their own community, was a source of defilement (Josephus J.W. 2,8,10) A. N. Sherwin-White (Roman Society and Roman Law in the New Testament, 166) states that the internal coherence of the lengthy [synchronistic] formula cannot be challenged for accuracy. When Herod s son Archelaus was deposed (A.D. 6), Judea and Samaria came under the direct control of Roman officials. Pilate was appointed the sixth prefect of Judea by Sejanus, Tiberius anti-jewish adviser, and he held the prefecture from AD
11 LUKE 3:1-7 / 2 Herod tetrarch of Galilee: Herod Antipas, younger son of Malthace and Herod the Great,. He ruled until 39 A.D. when Caligula deposed and exiled him for seeking to make the courtesy title of him into a real title. Tetrarch originally meant one who rules over a fourth of an area but by the time of the gospel, it had become a stereotyped title for a petty prince. Philip was the son of Herod the Great and Cleopatra of Jerusalem. He ruled east of the Jordan, to the north, bordering on Syria, south of Damascus. He ruled from 4 B.C. until A.D. 34 hen he died. Lysanias ruled the territory northwest of Damascus, surrounding the town of Abila at the southern end of the Anti-Lebanon range. This may indicate that Luke was Syrian from Abilene or that Theophilus, to whom the gospel is addressed is from that region.
12 LUKE 3:1-7 / 3 High priesthood of Annas and Caiaphas: Annas, son of Seth, was appointed high priest by the Roman governor, P. Sulpicius Quirinius in A.D. 6 and held this position until he was deposed in A.D. 15. He was then succeeded by Ishmael, son of Phiabi (A.D. 15), Eleazar, his own son (16-117), Simon, son of Camith (17-18), and eventually by his son-in-law, Joseph, called Caiaphas. The latter held the post of high priest from A.D. 18 through 36. Dueal Pair like. Abiyathar and Ahimelek, his father A message came from God to John: John is called like Jeremiah in Jer. 1.1 The word of God which was directed to Jeremiah son of Hilkiah. John belongs to the period of Israel; he is the last of prophets. In the desert: The importance of silence, contemplation, and the will to seek the Lord are important elements in the prophetic and Christian life. John is itinerant. He preaches a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins: metanoia repentance, literally a change of mind conversion, reform of life.
13 LUKE 3:1-7 / 4 To the Essenes, it was useless to enter the waters unless one were willing to turn from evildoing. As it is written: Saint Luke shows that Saint Johns fulfills the words written in the Book of Isaiah, chapter 40:3-5 Note that the Manual of Discipline of the Essenes relies on the same text to explain why they chose to live in the desert. Make ready the way of the Lord: The restoration of the Kingdom of Israel has begun and it begins with repentance. Similar to making ready the way of a King. All the flesh shall see the salvation of God: Again, the assertion that salvation is to extent beyond Israel to the entire world Brood of Vipers: three samples of John s preaching are given: eschatological, ethical and messianic
14 LUKE 3:1-7 / 5 Verses 7-9 are eschatological. They are meant to show Israel that God plays no favorite and the wrath of God is real Verses turns Saint John s attention to ethical conduct: selfless concern for others. Assistance, honesty, equity. Saint John manifests a real concern for others but does not seek to upset the social order. He does not even tell soldiers who are in the case mercenaries to quit, but to be content with their pay. Verses is messianic and it is the most important section. Saint John defines his role vis-à-vis the Messaiah, the One who is to come, the more powerful one.
15 LUKE 3: Bear fruits that befit repentance, and do not begin to say to yourselves, `We have Abraham as our father'; for I tell you, God is able from these stones to raise up children to Abraham. 9. Even now the axe is laid to the root of the trees; every tree therefore that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire." 10. And the multitudes asked him, "What then shall we do?" 11. And he answered them, "He who has two coats, let him share with him who has none; and he who has food, let him do likewise." 12. Tax collectors also came to be baptized, and said to him, "Teacher, what shall we do?" 13. And he said to them, "Collect no more than is appointed you." 14. Soldiers also asked him, "And we, what shall we do?" And he said to them, "Rob no one by violence or by false accusation, and be content with your wages. 15. As the people were in expectation, and all men questioned in their hearts concerning John whether he was the Christ
16 LUKE 3:8-14 / 1 Brood of viper: This expression is not found in the Old Testament. Wrath to come: Saint Luke uses this expression here and in 21:23. It refers to a future manifestation of God s wrath. This is associated with The Day of the Lord in Isa 13:9, Zeph 1:14-16, Ezek 7:19. Jewish apocalyptic made much use of this expression, depicting God doing battle with his angles on the side of the sons of light. Bear Fruits that Befits Repentance: Show by your actions and conduct that an inner change has taken place. Fruits: The virtues. The three theological virtues: Faith, Hope, Charity. And the Moral virtues: Justice, Temperance, Prudence, Fortitude. The Seven Cardinal virtues. We have Abraham as our Father: Refers to the Blessing of Abraham (Gen: 12-13). Various rabbinical literature played on Israel s physical descent from Abraham as protection against God s wrath. If Abraham is their father, then they are Abraham s sons. And?
17 LUKE 3:8-14 / 2 God can raise children to Abraham: God can renew Israel (faithfulness to covenant) without the Israelites. Also pun in the Aramaic: benayya (sons) from abnayya (stones) Axe is laid to the root: Urgency, depth of depravity. Any tree that fails to produce good fruit: Parable of the fig tree (Luke 13:6-9) Tax-collector: More accurately, perhaps, is toll-collectors: Jews responsible for the collection of indirect taxes: (tolls, tariffs, imposts, and customs). Soldiers: Not Roman soldiers, most likely Jewish men enlisted in the service of Herod Antipas (Josephus Ant. 18.5,1), as well as mercenaries
18 LUKE 3: John answered them all, "I baptize you with water; but he who is mightier than I is coming, the thong of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie; he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire. 17. His winnowing fork is in his hand, to clear his threshing floor, and to gather the wheat into his granary, but the chaff he will burn with unquenchable fire." 18. So, with many other exhortations, he preached good news to the people. 19. But Herod the tetrarch, who had been reproved by him for Hero'di-as, his brother's wife, and for all the evil things that Herod had done, 20. added this to them all, that he shut up John in prison. 21. Now when all the people were baptized, and when Jesus also had been baptized and was praying, the heaven was opened, 22. and the Holy Spirit descended upon him in bodily form, as a dove, and a voice came from heaven, "Thou art my beloved Son; with thee I am well pleased."
19 LUKE 3:16-22 / 1 Baptizing you with water: Indicates intent, not power He who is mightier than I is coming: (see Malachi 3:1,23) Adam Noah Abraham Isaac Jacob Joseph The thong of whose sandals I am unfit to untie: Indicates the position of a slave, forbidden by the rabbis in later tradition as a service to be done by a disciple to his master Baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire: Reference to exodus Baptism of Judgment (See wrath beforehand). Winnowing fork: used to toss threshed grain to the wind to separate the light chaff from the heavy kernels, which would fall in a heap (see Isaiah 30:24). Unquenchable fire: God s reign is for ever. Moses Joshuah Elijah Alisha John the Baptist Jesus
20 LUKE 3:16-22 / 2 Beloved Son: Not a messianic title. We already know that Jesus is Savior, Lord, and Messiah (Luke 2:11). We know he is the Son (Luke 1:32,35) What is the knew is the overshadowing of the Spirit. Why did Jesus submit to the Baptism of John? Jesus is conscious of sin, yet recognizing in John s call for repentance an opportunity for personal conversion Jesus approves of John s ministry Jesus is a disciple of John Symbolic anticipation of his passion and the expiatory significance that it would have. Jesus obeys (Jesus too was baptized) and Jesus sanctifies because he is the only one that can live-up to John s calling. The unclean when touched shall be made clean.
21 LUKE 3:16-22 / 3 Thou art my beloved (agapetos) Son; with thee I am well pleased. Psalm 2: You are my son, today I have begotten you: an enthronement psalm for some heir of the Davidic throne. I am well pleased -- Servant -- I have taken delight. See Isa 42:1 Beginning of the first Servant Song.
22 LET S RECAP John the Baptist announces a baptism of repentance and forgiveness of sins To repent and to be forgiven, we need the Grace of God flowing from the Cross. Thus, Saint John tells those who hear him what they need to do. If convicted of their sins, they will realize their need for forgiveness and thus will be ready to listen to Jesus. Saint John reminds us of the Wrath to come. God is the final judge of our lives and our action orient us towards heaven or hell. Saint John tells us he is not worthy to untie the thongs of His sandals. Do we say the same?
