<189> Thesis: The divine provision of an effective Redeemer was rooted in grace-based wisdom. Introduction: Last week we began our consideration of Luke's presentation of the "Child" as a "child" -- i.e., an object of the "frantic" heart of the Father (an anthropomorphism deliberately designed to picture the height and depth of His love -- Ephesians 3:17-19) whose personal response was that of one who perfectly understood the "wisdom-based" response of one loved so greatly. Luke's record is of a "child" who is fully committed to "the things of His Father". This morning we are going to look again into Luke's introductory remarks to note the methods of God in providing us with a Redeemer.
