A Welcoming Kingdom 1

The Beatitudes are an announcement about something that is starting to happen. Good news! These Beatitudes bless people for what they will inherit when all the dust settles and when God’s will is fully established. The Beatitudes are intended to comfort people now in light of what will happen then. The Prodigals (and the lost sheep and coin) tell the same story in parable form. The Beatitudes are good news for prodigals.

Series Information

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.
