Luke 1–2

Here is the document I used this morning in class, but in a better format (PDF). At the end of it are the Josephus text from the Vita, as well as the song sung by Hannah in the story of Samuel’s birth at the beginning of the first book of Samuel, and texts from Exodus and Leviticus which help understand the background to the story of Jesus’ presentation at the Jerusalem temple. I will be adding my notes soon.
