Paul asks rhetorically, "if God is for us, who can be against us?" Of course, the answer is no one! But do not miss the most significant picture: God is FOR US! And God if for us, in all of our lostness (and lostnesses?), in a big, resolute, extravagant, relentless, patient way, if God is for us even in our lostness, what might it mean to actually be found and live in that foundness? You know it's got to be good to make up new words for it.
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.
