  Luke 3:

God told John in the desert to go around the country preaching a baptism of repentance for forgiveness of sin. As prophesized by Isaiah, John was the voice calling in the desert and preparing the way for Jesus. John taught the people to be baptized to disregard Judaism of Abraham for the good fruits of repentance for the Holy Spirit through Jesus. John preached socialism of sharing and enjoying just enough rather than capitalism. He also baptized tax collectors and soldiers as well as spoke against bearing false witness. Many wondered if he was the Christ, but John told them that the Christ was coming after him and that he baptizes with water, but the Christ will baptize with the Holy Spirit and with fire. King Herod arrested John for speaking against his evil rulings and Herod's marriage to his sister-in-law. John baptized many, including Jesus, and God came down as a dove to declare Jesus as his son. Jesus began his ministry at age 30.

Luke 4:

Jesus was led to the desert by the Holy Spirit for a 40-day fast. Satan wanted Jesus to turn stones into bread if Jesus is the Son of God because Jesus was hungry (economic power), but Jesus said that it was written that man should not live on bread alone. Satan then showed Jesus all the glory of the earthly kingdoms that had been given to him and promised to give it to Jesus if Jesus would worship him (political power), but Jesus told him that it was written that only God shall be worshipped. Satan took Jesus to Jerusalem and had him stand on the zenith of the temple. Satan told Jesus to thrown himself down if he was the Son of God because it was written that God will send angels to protect him (power of deceit / false prophets), but Jesus told him not to test God. Jesus returned to Nazareth in the power of the Spirit to teach and all were amazed. He read a passage from Isaiah and told them that it was fulfilled today.  He told them that in the time of Elijah and Elisha, only foreigners got blessed and not people of Israel, so they chased him out of town to kill him, but he escaped. Jesus healed a man with an evil spirit, who called him the Holy One of God. Jesus healed a woman with fever, many sickness, and demon possessed - the demons called him the Son of God.

Luke 5:

Jesus recruits Peter, James, and John as disciples. A man with leprosy was healed and a paralytic was dropped through the roof on a mat for Jesus to heal. Jesus told him that his sins were forgiven, but the Pharisee and teachers of the law from Jerusalem and other cities felt that Jesus was blasphemous because only God can forgive sins. Jesus eventually told the paralytic man to get up, take his mat, and go home, and he was healed. Jesus told Levi, a tax collector to follow him, and he left everything at the tax booth and followed Jesus. At Levi's banquet, the Pharisees and teachers of the law asked the disciples why Jesus and his disciples were eating with tax collector and sinners, but Jesus responded that he had come to call them to repentance.
