The Other, Other Side of the Road
When we talk about the story of The Good Samaritan, we usually talk about the people passing by, the ones who did not stop, and the one who did. Very rarely do we talk about the victim, the man who was left beaten. If we stop and look at him, we might be able to relate to the one beaten and robbed. Tonight Terry takes us through a look at the victim in the story of the Good Samaritan. In our story the Samaritan is Jesus, and he has come to give us peace and rest.
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.
