Terry continues last week's examination of the mission instructions of Jesus to the Twelve. Not only should we read it literally, to get the facts and surface directions, but we should also read it literarily to dig out the meaning, especially to consider the meaning for us. Then we may discern the meaning behind Jesus' words, and better incorporate it into our daily walk with Jesus, and our mission to speak the gospel and heal all others.
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.
