Luke starts his Gospel by telling us that he has researched everything very thoroughly, and that he wants us to have certainty about everything to do with this Gospel. As we step onto this stage and start to hear this story, we see the births of two baby boys, born to two different kinds of needy families. But this is how God sets the scene for the great hope that would come to us: God is about to bring good news to the poor, and the marginalised, and the hopeless, through this child, Jesus Christ. And so the surprises begin.
