Forest From Tree
It's easy to get caught up in the details that we miss the point, whether it be at our job, at school, at home...and the Scriptures are no different. We focus so much on the details that we may be missing the bigger picture. We, at times, need to look around and see what it all means. Today Terry does just that as he looks at Luke 4:1-13, the story of Jesus being tempted in the desert. Listen to the story in a different way and see if maybe you don't start seeing a bigger picture.
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.
