Luke: Advent to Easter
Length of Series 15
Intended Audience General
Setting Sunday morning

Goal for this Series

To take readers through the entire life story of Jesus through the book of Luke.

Unifying Characteristics

This series starts with the first Sunday of Advent at the beginning of Luke and works sequentially through the book of Luke until Easter. Many believers have never been presented with the entire story of Jesus life, let alone from a single book and this series is designed to help people see Jesus' life story and how it works into the Church year.

Things to Consider

The timing of Easter is variable each year. So sometimes this series will be way too short and sometimes it might be a little short. If there are too many, take them out of the middle instead of from the end, as the first 7 messages are about Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany, while the last seven are designed for Lent and Easter.

Some of these messages align with the assigned passages from the Lectionary, but not many. Year C of the Lectionary focuses on Luke, but does not always maintain the passages in a sequential order and so this series diverges regularly.

As there is a big gap in Luke from Luke 19 (Palm Sunday) to Luke 24 (Easter) it is recommended that you cover some passages from that section in the interweek services, especially the last supper in a Good Friday service. Another good option of covering that material is to go back after Easter and cover it from Easter to Pentecost.
