Simon or Sinner?
After spending so much time in Simon's house this question seems like the elephant right there in that room: am I more like Simon, or am I more like Sinner? Any other time we'd want to readily distance ourselves from the Sinner-label, but doesn't that appear to be a real problem for Simon? Who is Sinner, and who is sinning, may not have the same answer. Terry unpacks a trunkload of insight on who we need to be, Simon, or Sinner, from Luke 7:36-50.
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.
