Resource List for Advent Sermons

3 Dec

Last Sunday I began a series on the birth narratives in the gospel of Luke as a way to help us celebrate Advent as a church. In this article, I want to share with those who are in church each week as well as those who listen online the sources I am using for study for this series. The list below is given so that those who may want to do further study can have an idea of some good resources to check out. Most of these resources can be found on Amazon or through Christian Book Distributors. Many of these sources are also available in Bible software programs like Logos Bible software and Accordance.

The Greek New Testament, Nestle-Aland 28th edition and UBS 4 Reader’s Edition
English Standard Version
King James Version
New International Version (2011)
