After the story of Christmas, Luke–and the Bible–is silent about the rest of Jesus’ life until He begins His public ministry at the age of 30 (save one brief story about Jesus in Jerusalem at the age of 12). When Jesus begins His ministry, people see Him as a normal human being. Jesus’ preferred way of referring to Himself (“son of man” or “human one,” see Luke 5:24, 6:5, 6:22, etc.) affirms that He is indeed fully human, but also adds the twist of being an Old Testament title for God’s prophet (Ezekiel 2:1, 2:3, 2:6, etc.) and, more strikingly, the coming Messiah (see also Ezekiel 2:3, Daniel 7:13-14, 10:18)! Early in 2021 we are going to be listening in Luke (chapters 3-6) to Jesus to hear how Jesus was fully a human but also the divine Messiah sent from God as savior.
