Turn It Around
No! Calamity and tragedy do not equal sin. In the opening of Luke 13, Jesus is saying: Turn your life around! This is Jesus' constant exhortation to pursue Kingdom living. Jesus is trying to get us to take these bad things in life and life around us and have them affect our behavior and our life for Him.
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.
