Blessings and Woes 5: Contrasts
Often times we gloss over scripture without truly understanding what is being said. We can start to think we have heard it all before, and that we don't need to hear it again. In this lesson Terry highlights the contrasts Luke makes between the blessings and woes. From here we see how Jesus was speaking about the contrasts between the Kingdom of Heaven and the kingdom of man.
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.
