    Luke tells us that Jesus’ popularity had gone so far as to attract the attention of the religious rulers in “every village of Galilee and from Judea and Jerusalem” (Luke 5:17).  If ever there were evidence of the Messiah’s arrival, certainly things were happening to get the attention of those who were intently looking for […]

    After the heavenly proclamation at His baptism (Luke 3:21-22) and the time of temptation in the wilderness (Luke 4:1-13), Jesus returns to Galilee (Luke 4:14-15) with popularity that echoed back to His hometown of Nazareth (Luke 4:23).   Upon visiting Nazareth one Sabbath, He announced the fulfillment of Isaiah’s prophecy (Isaiah 61:1-2, 58:6) in His ministry (Luke […]

Followers of Christ

In Jesus’ sermon to His disciples in Luke 6:12-49 He stresses several characteristics of those who choose to follow Him.  To those who will listen, He challenges them to become like Him by listening to His words and putting them into practice.  His words provide the foundation to their lives that will help them withstand the stormy reactions of others who refuse to obey His teachings.

 

Challenging the Status Quo

In Luke 5:17-6:11 we are introduced to the Pharisees and teachers of the law who had become comfortable in their religion.  Jesus confronts their assumptions by His actions and by His words.  Rather than choosing to believe they become furious and start scheming about what to do with Jesus.

Steve’s lesson this morning is based on scripture found in the fifth chapter of Luke, verses 17-26.

Jesus Returns to Nazareth

Jesus had been doing God’s work in Capernaum and other parts of Galilee so that his reputation was now coming back to his hometown. When Jesus shows up for the synagogue service everyone is excited to see Him and hear His message… and see the wonders He will perform for them. What they received from Jesus was quite a bit different than what they had expected…

Steve’s lesson this morning is based on scripture found in the fourth chapter of Luke, verses 14-22.
