The Gospel In You
Sometimes it's just good to do things different. Most of us, though, get into our own routines and prefer staying where we're at, doing what we've done all along, change is met with resistance. But Terry shows us today in Luke 4:14-21, as Jesus is reading from the words of Isaiah, that Scripture is not just a book of history and a list of do's and don'ts to get to heaven, but an essential part of our Christian life and walk. This is the centerpiece of what the Gospel is, and we are a part of that. Exciting new ways to read the Bible, ways that could affect not only the way we approach the Scripture, but how we approach living in this world.
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.
