At the Intersection of Hope and Despair
Hope is hard thing to try and hold onto, at least from a worldly standpoint. In a world rocked back and forth on the waves of turmoil, holding onto hope can be difficult. It is far too easy to turn to despair in light of all that happens in the world everyday. However from a Christian standpoint, our hope never leaves us. Terry takes us through two stories in Luke chapter 7. We have a blessed hope that is our Lord Jesus Christ, and he will not leave us or forsake us.
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.
