The True Story of Jesus Christ

To read the Bible in a year, read Luke 1:1-23.
God used some men to write parts of the Scriptures of which they were not witnesses of the events they wrote about, nor could they investigate historical documents to see the truth of the matters. For example, God used Moses to write the first eleven chapters of the Book of Genesis. Since a world-wide flood occurred between the creation and the birth of Moses and all historical documents were wiped out, he could not investigate those matters. He did not witness the events of those chapters. God revealed them to Moses. Noah and his descendants certainly passed on the stories of those days as well.
However, God did use some writers who could investigate matters and so by the witness of the Holy Spirit in the writer and the investigative reporting of the writer himself, we could know the veracity of his writings. Luke assured us that is what he did, “Inasmuch as many have taken in hand to set in order a narrative of those things which have been fulfilled among us, just as those who from the beginning were eyewitnesses and ministers of the word delivered them to us, it seemed good to me also, having had perfect understanding of all things from the very first, to write to you an orderly account, most excellent Theophilus, that you may know the certainty of those things in which you were instructed” (Luke 1:1-4). Luke spoke with the witnesses and the Holy Spirit moved the physician to give us an accurate rendering of the story of Jesus. What you shall read in the Gospel According to Luke truly happened.
