A Lesson From History
History is a fascinating subject for some people. It is subject that can always be discussed and picked apart, and usually leads to thoughtful discussion. However sometime it does not and can create fears and it can become something people do their very best to avoid at all cost. This morning Terry takes us through a bit of history lesson. It is important as Christians to know our history and the importance of some traditions.
Terry proclaims the one Gospel through the history, research, rememberings and faith expressed in the text of the Gospel According to Luke. Jesus himself is the good news expressed by Luke. Beginning with the birth narratives unique to Luke's presentation, the good news of the Kingdom explodes into faithful view as each account, teaching, parable and event lived out and offered by Jesus, the Messiah-King, is examined the way Luke seemingly examined Jesus in his own work. Here we find a Jesus to love, a Jesus to follow, and ultimately a Jesus to worship.
