This is a companion volume to Meditations in John. As that wonderful Gospel sets forth the glories of Christ as the Son of God and thus begins with His eternal existence, insisting on His eternal deity, so this Gospel presents Him as the Son of Man so begins with the account of His wondrous Incarnation. It is the story of how the Son of God became the Son of Man, that the sons of men might become the sons of God.

As the book meditations in John, this volume is not in the form of a commentary, but presents the fruit of years of meditation on this lovely record of our Savior’s altogether human, yet altogether divine personality and ways. Here in Luke, God comes very close to us, and brings us very near to Him. This book is truly a mine of wealth, baffling the utmost efforts of the most determined prospector to discover, to any extent,the rich veins of precious truths embedded in its simple, yet profound language. If the reader gets half as much joy and wonder out of the perusal of this book as the writer got out of its creation, the author will be well satisfied. May the Holy Spirit bless it abundantly, for His glory and the spiritual blessing and uplift of the reader.

Many have learned and grown under the teaching of August Van Ryn during his lifetime of service to the Lord. Born in the Netherlands in 1890, he accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as his Savior when he was 20. IN 1915 he began full-time Christian service, first in gospel tent work in Michigan and then in the Bahamas for 14 years.


His grasp of the Scriptures was unusual. Fearing the permanent loss of his eyesight, he memorized all of the New Testament and large portions of the Old Testament. Later, through diligent care, his eyesight was restored, for more years of service to the Lord.

Mr. Van Ryn traveled extensively throughout his lifetime laboring for the Lord. May these precious portions from his study of the Word enlighten you as well. For more of his precious works, check out Meditations in Matthew, Meditations in Mark, Meditations in John, and Meditations in Acts.
