Why does Luke begin his gospel with the two miraculous birth stories?

He tells us firstly about John the Baptist and then about Jesus. What do you think is the signifiance of these stories at the start of his account?

As a primary community we are starting to focus on Luke as the lens thru which we will look at Jesus. These chapters are a different start to the other gospels – would be interested in some opinions.
