The Best Father Ever
The Best Father Gives When it’s Best vv. 5-8
The Best Father Gives What is Best vv. 9-13
In comparison to Mark (six times) and Matthew (twelve times), Luke referred to the Spirit at least seventeen times in his Gospel; and to this we can add such references that refer to the Spirit as “power” or “promise.” It is above all in Acts, however, where we encounter most strongly this Lukan emphasis. Here the Spirit is referred to approximately seventy times, and specific reference is made to the “Holy Spirit” over forty times. This Lukan theological emphasis is present from Luke 1 through Acts 28.
