The Father, Part 2
We can often lose track of the meanings of certain words. It may be from overuse or a co-opting of the word to mean something else. Slang is usually fixed to time frame, as well as the idioms in use, all of which has context for it's own time. This happens in almost every language through out all of time and human communication. One of the words that has gone through a rather broad usage is the word Father. This morning Terry takes us through what Jesus meant when he said Father. God is our Father. Before we were even known to the universe, we were known to him. Far after we have passed from this world, we will be known to him. He is our Father, and he loves us greatly.
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.
