HOMILY 27 Luke 3.18-22

On the passage from, "He was also proclaiming many other things [to the people] and encouraging them," up to the point where it says, "The Holy Spirit came down upon him."

ONE WHO TEACHES the word of the Gospel proclaims not one thing, but many. Scripture indicates this when it says, "He was also proclaiming many other things [to the people] and encouraging [them]."1. Therefore, John also preached "other things" to the people, which have not been recorded. But consider how many things there are that have been recorded. He proclaimed Christ. He pointed him out. He preached the baptism of the Holy Spirit. He taught the tax collectors salvation and the soldiers discipline. He taught that the threshing floor was being cleansed, trees cut down, and the rest, which the account in the Gospel narrates. Hence, apart from these things that have been written down, he is shown to have proclaimed other things, which are not written down. For the Scripture says, "He was also proclaiming many other things to the people and encouraging them."2.

2. The Gospel According to John reports about Christ that he said many other things "that are not written in this book";3. "if they were written down, I do not think that the world itself would be able to hold the books that would have to be written."4. Thus too, in the present instance, understand that perhaps Luke was unwilling to record those things explicitly, because John proclaimed some things that were too great to be committed to writing. He only indicated that they were said. For this reason he wrote, "He was also proclaiming many other things
