Correction or Condemnation?
Condemning and Correcting are different things. To condemn someone is to pass sentence, it is to judge. Condemnation always involves self righteousness. To correct someone is to lovingly help someone. There is a fine line there that we must be aware of. Terry takes us through these differences. We are not to condemn people, we are to love, and give mercy to each other freely.
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.
