Evangelio según San Lucas

Capítulo 2

1 En aquella época apareció un decreto del emperador Augusto, ordenando que se realizara un censo en todo el mundo.

2 Este primer censo tuvo lugar cuando Quirino gobernaba la Siria.

3 Y cada uno iba a inscribirse a su ciudad de origen.

4 José, que pertenecía a la familia de David, salió de Nazaret, ciudad de Galilea, y se dirigió a Belén de Judea, la ciudad de David,

5 para inscribirse con María, su esposa, que estaba embarazada.

6 Mientras se encontraban en Belén, le llegó el tiempo de ser madre;

7 y María dio a luz a su Hijo primogénito, lo envolvió en pañales y lo acostó en un pesebre, porque no había lugar para ellos en el albergue.

8 En esa región acampaban unos pastores, que vigilaban por turno sus rebaños durante la noche.

9 De pronto, se les apareció el Angel del Señor y la gloria del Señor los envolvió con su luz. Ellos sintieron un gran temor,

10 pero el Angel les dijo: «No teman, porque les traigo una buena noticia, una gran alegría para todo el pueblo:

11 Hoy, en la ciudad de David, les ha nacido un Salvador, que es el Mesías, el Señor.

12 Y esto les servirá de señal: encontrarán a un niño recién nacido envuelto en pañales y acostado en un pesebre».

13 Y junto con el Angel, apareció de pronto una multitud del ejército celestial, que alababa a Dios, diciendo:

14 ¡Gloria a Dios en las alturas, y en la tierra, paz a los hombres amados por él».

15 Después que los ángeles volvieron al cielo, los pastores se decían unos a otros: «Vayamos a Belén, y veamos lo que ha sucedido y que el Señor nos ha anunciado».

16 Fueron rápidamente y encontraron a María, a José, y al recién nacido acostado en el pesebre.

17 Al verlo, contaron lo que habían oído decir sobre este niño,

18 y todos los que los escuchaban quedaron admirados de que decían los pastores.

19 Mientras tanto, María conservaba estas cosas y las meditaba en su corazón.

20 Y los pastores volvieron, alabando y glorificando a Dios por todo lo que habían visto y oído, conforme al anuncio que habían recibido.

21 Ocho días después, llegó el tiempo de circuncidar al niño y se el puso el nombre de Jesús, nombre que le había sido dado por el Angel antes de su concepción.

22 Cuando llegó el día fijado por la Ley de Moisés para la purificación, llevaron al niño a Jerusalén para presentarlo al Señor,

23 como está escrito en la Ley: «Todo varón primogénito será consagrado al Señor».

24 También debían ofrecer un sacrificio un par de tórtolas o de pichones de paloma, como ordena la Ley del Señor.

25 Vivía entonces en Jerusalén un hombre llamado Simeón, que era justo y piadoso, y esperaba el consuelo de Israel. El Espíritu Santo estaba en él

26 y le había revelado que no moriría antes de ver al Mesías del Señor.

27 Conducido por el mismo Espíritu, fue al Templo, y cuando los padres de Jesús llevaron al niño para cumplir con él las prescripciones de la Ley,

28 Angel lo tomó en sus brazos y alabó a Dios, diciendo:

29 «Ahora, Señor, puedes dejar que tu servidor muera en paz, como lo has prometido,

30 porque mis ojos han visto la salvación

31 que preparaste delante de todos los pueblos:

32 luz para iluminar a las naciones paganas y gloria de tu pueblo Israel».

33 Su padre y su madre estaban admirados por lo que oían decir de él.

34 Simeón, después de bendecirlos, dijo a María, la madre: «Este niño será causa de caída y de elevación para muchos en Israel; será signo de contradicción,

35 y a ti misma una espada te atravesará el corazón. Así se manifestarán claramente los pensamientos íntimos de muchos».

36 Había también allí una profetisa llamada Ana, hija de Fanuel, de la familia de Aser, mujer ya entrada en años, que, casa en su juventud, había vivido siete años con su marido.

37 Desde entonces había permanecido viuda, y tenía ochenta y cuatro años. No se apartaba del Templo, sirviendo a Dios noche y día con ayunos y oraciones.

38 Se presentó en ese mismo momento y se puso a dar gracias a Dios. Y hablaba acerca del niño a todos los que esperaban la redención de Jerusalén.

39 Después de cumplir todo lo que ordenaba la Ley del Señor, volvieron a su ciudad de Nazaret, en Galilea.

40 El niño iba creciendo y se fortalecía, lleno de sabiduría, y la gracia de Dios estaba con él.

41 Sus padres iban todos los años a Jerusalén en la fiesta de la Pascua.

42 Cuando el niño cumplió doce años, subieron como de costumbre,

43 y acababa la fiesta, María y José regresaron, pero Jesús permaneció en Jerusalén sin que ellos se dieran cuenta.

44 Creyendo que estaba en la caravana, caminaron todo un día y después comenzaron a buscarlo entre los parientes y conocidos.

45 Como no lo encontraron, volvieron a Jerusalén en busca de él.

46 Al tercer día, lo hallaron en el Templo en medio de los doctores de la Ley, escuchándolos y haciéndoles preguntas.

47 Y todos los que los oían estaban asombrados de su inteligencia y sus respuestas.

48 Al ver, sus padres quedaron maravillados y su madre le dijo: «Hijo mío, ¿por qué nos has hecho esto? Piensa que tu padre y yo te buscábamos angustiados».

49 Jesús les respondió: «¿Por qué me buscaban? ¿No sabían que yo debo ocuparme de los asuntos de mi Padre?».

50 Ellos no entendieron lo que les decía.

51 El regresó con sus padres a Nazaret y vivía sujeto a ellos. Su madre conservaba estas cosas en su corazón.

52 Jesús iba creciendo en sabiduría, en estatura y en gracia, delante de Dios y de los hombres.

Saint Luke

Chapter 3

1

1 2 In the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar, when Pontius Pilate was governor of Judea, and Herod was tetrarch of Galilee, and his brother Philip tetrarch of the region of Ituraea and Trachonitis, and Lysanias was tetrarch of Abilene,

2

during the high priesthood of Annas and Caiaphas, 3 the word of God came to John the son of Zechariah in the desert.

3

4 He went throughout (the) whole region of the Jordan, proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins,

4

5 as it is written in the book of the words of the prophet Isaiah: «A voice of one crying out in the desert: ‘Prepare the way of the Lord, make straight his paths.

5

Every valley shall be filled and every mountain and hill shall be made low. The winding roads shall be made straight, and the rough ways made smooth,

6

and all flesh shall see the salvation of God.'»

7

He said to the crowds who came out to be baptized by him, «You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the coming wrath?

8

Produce good fruits as evidence of your repentance; and do not begin to say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our father,’ for I tell you, God can raise up children to Abraham from these stones.

9

Even now the ax lies at the root of the trees. Therefore every tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire.»

10

And the crowds asked him, «What then should we do?»

11

He said to them in reply, «Whoever has two cloaks should share with the person who has none. And whoever has food should do likewise.»

12

Even tax collectors came to be baptized and they said to him, «Teacher, what should we do?»

13

He answered them, «Stop collecting more than what is prescribed.»

14

Soldiers also asked him, «And what is it that we should do?» He told them, «Do not practice extortion, do not falsely accuse anyone, and be satisfied with your wages.»

15

Now the people were filled with expectation, and all were asking in their hearts whether John might be the Messiah.

16

6 John answered them all, saying, «I am baptizing you with water, but one mightier than I is coming. I am not worthy to loosen the thongs of his sandals. He will baptize you with the holy Spirit and fire.

17

His winnowing fan 7 is in his hand to clear his threshing floor and to gather the wheat into his barn, but the chaff he will burn with unquenchable fire.»

18

Exhorting them in many other ways, he preached good news to the people.

19

8 Now Herod the tetrarch, who had been censured by him because of Herodias, his brother’s wife, and because of all the evil deeds Herod had committed,

20

added still another to these by (also) putting John in prison.

21

9 10 After all the people had been baptized and Jesus also had been baptized and was praying, heaven was opened

22

11 and the holy Spirit descended upon him in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from heaven, «You are my beloved Son; with you I am well pleased.»

23

12 When Jesus began his ministry he was about thirty years of age. He was the son, as was thought, of Joseph, the son of Heli,

24

the son of Matthat, the son of Levi, the son of Melchi, the son of Jannai, the son of Joseph,

25

the son of Mattathias, the son of Amos, the son of Nahum, the son of Esli, the son of Naggai,

26

the son of Maath, the son of Mattathias, the son of Semein, the son of Josech, the son of Joda,

27

the son of Joanan, the son of Rhesa, the son of Zerubbabel, the son of Shealtiel, the son of Neri,

28

the son of Melchi, the son of Addi, the son of Cosam, the son of Elmadam, the son of Er,

29

the son of Joshua, the son of Eliezer, the son of Jorim, the son of Matthat, the son of Levi,

30

the son of Simeon, the son of Judah, the son of Joseph, the son of Jonam, the son of Eliakim,

31

the son of Melea, the son of Menna, the son of Mattatha, the son of Nathan, the son of David, 13

32

the son of Jesse, the son of Obed, the son of Boaz, the son of Sala, the son of Nahshon,

33

the son of Amminadab, the son of Admin, the son of Arni, the son of Hezron, the son of Perez, the son of Judah,

34

the son of Jacob, the son of Isaac, the son of Abraham, the son of Terah, the son of Nahor,

35

the son of Serug, the son of Reu, the son of Peleg, the son of Eber, the son of Shelah,

36

the son of Cainan, the son of Arphaxad, the son of Shem, the son of Noah, the son of Lamech,

37

the son of Methuselah, the son of Enoch, the son of Jared, the son of Mahalaleel, the son of Cainan,

38

the son of Enos, the son of Seth, the son of Adam, the son of God.

1 [1-20] Although Luke is indebted in this section to his sources, the Gospel of Mark and a collection of sayings of John the Baptist, he has clearly marked this introduction to the ministry of Jesus with his own individual style. Just as the gospel began with a long periodic sentence (⇒ Luke 1:1-4), so too this section (⇒ Luke 3:1-2). He casts the call of John the Baptist in the form of an Old Testament prophetic call (⇒ Luke 3:2) and extends the quotation from Isaiah found in ⇒ Mark 1:3 (⇒ Isaiah 40:3) by the addition of ⇒ Isaiah 40:4-5 in ⇒ Luke 3:5-6. In doing so, he presents his theme of the universality of salvation, which he has announced earlier in the words of Simeon (⇒ Luke 2:30-32). Moreover, in describing the expectation of the people (⇒ Luke 3:15), Luke is characterizing the time of John’s preaching in the same way as he had earlier described the situation of other devout Israelites in the infancy narrative (⇒ Luke 2:25-26, ⇒ 37-38). In ⇒ Luke 3:7-18 Luke presents the preaching of John the Baptist who urges the crowds to reform in view of the coming wrath (⇒ Luke 3:7, 9: eschatological preaching), and who offers the crowds certain standards for reforming social conduct (⇒ Luke 3:10-14: ethical preaching), and who announces to the crowds the coming of one mightier than he (⇒ Luke 3:15-18: messianic preaching).
2 [1] Tiberius Caesar: Tiberius succeeded Augustus as emperor in A.D. 14 and reigned until A.D. 37. The fifteenth year of his reign, depending on the method of calculating his first regnal year, would have fallen between A.D. 27 and 29. Pontius Pilate: prefect of Judea from A.D. 26 to 36. The Jewish historian Josephus describes him as a greedy and ruthless prefect who had little regard for the local Jewish population and their religious practices (see ⇒ Luke 13:1). Herod: i.e., Herod Antipas, the son of Herod the Great. He ruled over Galilee and Perea from 4 B.C. to A.D. 39. His official title tetrarch means literally, «ruler of a quarter,» but came to designate any subordinate prince. Philip: also a son of Herod the Great, tetrarch of the territory to the north and east of the Sea of Galilee from 4 B.C. to A.D. 34. Only two small areas of this territory are mentioned by Luke. Lysanias: nothing is known about this Lysanias who is said here to have been tetrarch of Abilene, a territory northwest of Damascus.
3 [2] During the high priesthood of Annas and Caiaphas: after situating the call of John the Baptist in terms of the civil rulers of the period, Luke now mentions the religious leadership of Palestine (see the note on ⇒ Luke 1:5). Annas had been high priest A.D. 6-15. After being deposed by the Romans in A.D. 15 he was succeeded by various members of his family and eventually by his son-in-law, Caiaphas, who was high priest A.D. 18-36. Luke refers to Annas as high priest at this time (but see ⇒ John 18:13, ⇒ 19), possibly because of the continuing influence of Annas or because the title continued to be used for the ex-high priest. The word of God came to John: Luke is alone among the New Testament writers in associating the preaching of John with a call from God. Luke is thereby identifying John with the prophets whose ministries began with similar calls. In ⇒ Luke 7:26 John will be described as «more than a prophet»; he is also the precursor of Jesus (⇒ Luke 7:27), a transitional figure inaugurating the period of the fulfillment of prophecy and promise.
4 [3] See the note on ⇒ Matthew 3:2.
5 [4] The Essenes from Qumran used the same passage to explain why their community was in the desert studying and observing the law and the prophets (1QS 8:12-15).
6 [16] He will baptize you with the holy Spirit and fire: in contrast to John’s baptism with water, Jesus is said to baptize with the holy Spirit and with fire. From the point of view of the early Christian community, the Spirit and fire must have been understood in the light of the fire symbolism of the pouring out of the Spirit at Pentecost (⇒ Acts 2:1-4); but as part of John’s preaching, the Spirit and fire should be related to their purifying and refining characteristics (⇒ Ezekiel 36:25-27; ⇒ Malachi 3:2-3). See the note on ⇒ Matthew 3:11.
7 [17] Winnowing fan: see the note on ⇒ Matthew 3:12.
8 [19-20] Luke separates the ministry of John the Baptist from that of Jesus by reporting the imprisonment of John before the baptism of Jesus (⇒ Luke 3:21-22). Luke uses this literary device to serve his understanding of the periods of salvation history. With John the Baptist, the time of promise, the period of Israel, comes to an end; with the baptism of Jesus and the descent of the Spirit upon him, the time of fulfillment, the period of Jesus, begins. In his second volume, the Acts of the Apostles, Luke will introduce the third epoch in salvation history, the period of the church.
9 [21-22] This episode in Luke focuses on the heavenly message identifying Jesus as Son and, through the allusion to ⇒ Isaiah 42:1, as Servant of Yahweh. The relationship of Jesus to the Father has already been announced in the infancy narrative (⇒ Luke 1:32, ⇒ 35; ⇒ 2:49); it occurs here at the beginning of Jesus’ Galilean ministry and will reappear in ⇒ Luke 9:35 before another major section of Luke’s gospel, the travel narrative (⇒ Luke 9:51-⇒ 19:27). Elsewhere in Luke’s writings (⇒ Luke 4:18; ⇒ Acts 10:38), this incident will be interpreted as a type of anointing of Jesus.
10 [21] Was praying: Luke regularly presents Jesus at prayer at important points in his ministry: here at his baptism; at the choice of the Twelve (⇒ Luke 6:12); before Peter’s confession (⇒ Luke 9:18); at the transfiguration (⇒ Luke 9:28); when he teaches his disciples to pray (⇒ Luke 11:1); at the Last Supper (⇒ Luke 22:32); on the Mount of Olives (⇒ Luke 22:41); on the cross (⇒ Luke 23:46).
11 [22] You are my beloved Son; with you I am well pleased: this is the best attested reading in the Greek manuscripts. The Western reading, «You are my Son, this day I have begotten you,» is derived from ⇒ Psalm 2:7.
12 [23-38] Whereas ⇒ Matthew 1:2 begins the genealogy of Jesus with Abraham to emphasize Jesus’ bonds with the people of Israel, Luke’s universalism leads him to trace the descent of Jesus beyond Israel to Adam and beyond that to God (⇒ Luke 3:38) to stress again Jesus’ divine sonship.
13 [31] The son of Nathan, the son of David: in keeping with Jesus’ prophetic role in Luke and Acts (e.g., ⇒ Luke 7:16, ⇒ 39; ⇒ 9:8; ⇒ 13:33; ⇒ 24:19; ⇒ Acts 3:22-23; ⇒ 7:37) Luke traces Jesus’ Davidic ancestry through the prophet Nathan (see ⇒ 2 Sam 7:2) rather than through King Solomon, as ⇒ Matthew 1:6-7.
