Putting It All Together
Often times with human communication it is far too easy to become fixated on some of the small little tidbits and because of this we miss the overall point. It is far too easy to lose sight of the big picture. Much like a painter who fixates on getting one tree absolutely perfect, we can lose sight of the overall landscape of the picture. Tonight, so we may see the bigger picture, Terry takes us back through everything we have gone through so far in Luke chapter 8. We must listen well, retain, and respond. As Christians, we must not become so fixated on the smaller details, including ourselves, that we miss the overall landscape that God is making.
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.
