I recently finished reading through the gospel of Luke again. Luke really intrigues me. I’ve mentioned before how the unique characteristics of Luke made him a perfect channel for presenting Christ’s aromatic human living. Luke’s emphasis on the humanity of Jesus really stands out in the passages unique to his gospel.
Here are a few of them:
The gospel of Luke presents, in detail, the incomparable and indescribable human living of the God-man Jesus Christ. Since such a life had never existed or been observed before, it is difficult to categorize.
Holy? Godly? Righteous? Kind? Loving? Humble? Ethical? Noble? All fall short and leave something wanting.
Aromatic is a good word to describe our perception of it. We detect something and yet can’t quite discern what we are experiencing.
