A Certain Story: An Exposition of Luke

A Certain Story: An Exposition of the Gospel of Luke is a series preached at Grace Baptist Church during our Sunday Morning Service in 2017 - early 2019.  Luke's Gospel is Part 1 of a two volume book he wrote (the other volume is Acts) about the life and ministry of Jesus Christ and the explosive growth of the church under his reign.  

This certain story was well-researched, and written down, and is therefore preached, so that we would "have certainty concerning the things that we have been taught" about the person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ. We hope that you will join us, or at least follow along with us as we study this great book.

Note: This audio resource also contains sermons from Luke preached apart from this series.
