Jesus and Divine Priority

Jesus and Divine Priority     All right, we should finish up Luke 4 this morning, so please turn in your Bibles to the end of chapter 4 in Luke’s gospel.  Last week we saw Jesus in a remarkable way as the great physician, healing all manner of physical needs and suffering.  The manner of Jesus’ healing was nothing short of remarkable,…

Jesus the Great Physician

September 4, 2016 I’d like to invite you to open your Bibles this morning to Luke’s Gospel, Luke 4:31. We’re coming to the end of that final section of Chapter 4, and we started it last week–the section that shows what really can only be described as the astonishing authority and power of Jesus Christ; his astonishing authority and power on display…

The Astonishing Authority of Jesus

  Let’s open our Bibles to Luke chapter 4—the fourth chapter of Luke’s Gospel. We are getting into, frankly, what is a fascinating section of Jesus’ ministry in Galilee. This first section here, as we get into this, is one that really establishes a pattern of his ministry for us as we see Jesus engaged in the teaching in the synagogue—the preaching…

The Messiah Confronts His People

August 21, 2016 We are continuing in Luke 4, his narrative of Jesus’ visit to his hometown synagogue in Nazareth. And it’s a visit—as we read last time and as, no doubt, you’re aware—it’s a visit that started with Jesus inviting the people with whom he was very familiar—the people he’d grown up with, neighbors, friends, family—inviting them all to participate in…

The Messiah Announces His Mission

August 14, 2016 We are in the fourth chapter of the Gospel of Luke, and last week, as often happens to me—it seems to be the bane of my existence—time evaporated on us, and so we didn’t finish all the things I wanted to say last week, but that’s sometimes the Lord’s way of cutting things off and moving things along, right?…

Jesus Gets to Work

August 7, 2016 Well, as we turn our attention to the study of God’s Word this morning, I invite you to turn in your Bibles to Luke Chapter 4.  We’re entering a new section in Luke’s Gospel, which is called or known as Jesus’ Galilean ministry.   This is a section that runs from Luke 4:14 all the way to Luke 9:50.  So,…

Love Never Puts God to the Test

July 31, 2016 Here we are in Luke 4, the final temptation.  If you’ve been with us over the past few weeks, we’ve been seeing something truly glorious on display.  We are seeing recorded here in Holy Scripture the world’s first perfect man.  He’s without parallel.  By the virtue of the two natures—one divine, one human—joined together mysteriously in this one person,…

Loyal to God Alone

Loyal to God Alone July 24, 2016 We are back in Luke’s Gospel this morning looking at the devil’s second temptation of Jesus.  You can turn there in your Bibles to Luke Chapter 4, verse 5.  As we come to the second temptation—last time we covered the first temptation—to turn a stone into bread.  That was a temptation about doubting God’s provision,…

Not by Bread Alone

Not by Bread Alone July 10, 2016 As we open up God’s word this morning, let’s get back to Luke 4 and continue our study of the devil’s temptation of Jesus.  Today we’re going to focus our attention on the first of those three temptations, and we’re going to learn from our Lord what it means that “Man does not live by…

The Devil’s Temptation of Jesus

The Devil’s Temptation of Jesus July 3, 2016  Turn in your Bibles to Luke Chapter 4.  That’s where we are this morning.  It’s a joy for me to be back in Luke’s Gospel again.  We had a month in June of learning from some other passages of Scripture—very important passages, but we are back.  We are entering into a very significant and…
