The Gospel of Luke denies the Incarnation & pre-existence of Jesus Christ.


Raymond E. Brown, The Birth of the Messiah: A Commentary on the Infancy Narratives in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke (Anchor Bible Reference).


Over his illustrious career, Raymond E. Brown, S.S., Ph.D., was internationally regarded as a dean of New Testament scholars. He was Auburn Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Biblical Studies at Union Theological Seminary in New York City, received over thirty honorary degrees from Catholic and Protestant universities worldwide, and was elected a (Corresponding) Fellow of the British Academy and a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. In addition to serving as president of the Society of Biblical Literature, the Catholic Biblical Association, and the Society of New Testament Studies, two popes appointed Father Brown as the sole American on the Pontifical Biblical Commission. Some of the best known of his more than thirty-five books on the Bible are three volumes in the “Anchor Bible” series on the Gospel and Epistles of John, as well as the Anchor Bible Reference Library volumes “The Birth of the Messiah”, “The Death of the Messiah”, and “An Introduction to the New Testament”, winner of the 1998 Catholic Press Association Award for Biblical Studies.

  1. Let’s not forget that christians keep informing us that gospels were distributed independently!
    If that was the case, I’m wondering how christians who had the Luke gospel only figured out this pagan concept! (i.e God incarnation) ?


  2. Good point Abdullah. Something to keep in mind!


  3. So when you read Luke 13:34 which reads: “Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to it! How often have I desired to gather your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you were not willing!”, you conclude that this talk of gathering children together was in the Earthly ministry of Christ and not the history of God in the entire second temple period?
