Welcome in an Unwelcoming World
In our world it is very easy to feel unwelcome. Depending on where you look you may only see bickering, and people on one side being increasingly hostile towards people on the other side. People have a tendency to look down on others based on their differences. However this is not how it should be. As Christians we are to love the ones who are different. Terry takes us through a different angle on Jesus' dinner with Simon the Pharisee. Jesus has overcome the world and its ways, all the bickering and fighting included. We, as Christians, are called to be welcoming, no matter how unwelcoming the world is.
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.
