Luke

THE ORDERLY ACCOUNTS

Luke-Acts are two books but one volume, these orderly accounts will satisfy any logical systematic thinker. Luke, having investigated everything from the beginning, presents his gospel of what Jesus did and said. He then continues in Acts, presenting what the disciples did and said. A must-read for any new Christian, these books are the foundation of not only what Jesus did but the beginnings of the Church we see today.

Part One

FOR THE SON OF MAN CAME TO SEEK AND SAVE THE LOST

L 19:10

As we read Luke-Acts together, I want you to take note of what Jesus does, how He acts and how He interacts with people. The book of Luke was written from eyewitness accounts so we can see what Jesus did and how He did things. The thing I love the most about Jesus is that He does what everyone says He shouldn’t do and doesn’t do what everyone tells Him He's supposed to do! Now, let me clarify something here, this isn't motivated by pure rebellion, He does it because He is changing the very fabric of society.

For our first Deep Dive, I want to take you a little further into the themes and language found in the book of Luke. This incredible book, as we have learnt, is the first of a two part series: Luke-Acts. There are specific things that we are meant to understand, but can only be seen when we read the two books together, let me show you some of these themes.

Part Two

Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.

L 9:23


DIVE

WOULD YOU DO WHAT THE DISCIPLES DID?

Sometimes when I listen to the news I find myself saying,  ‘I can’t believe they did that’, or ‘if I was there I would have done this’. The thing is, we don’t know what we would do until we are put into those situations ourselves.

As we study the different stories in the Gospels, sometimes people will jump out at you and you can ask yourself ‘how would I have felt at that time, would I do what they did?’ How would you feel being Matthew (Levi), being rejected by every other person, you are, to them, the enemy that takes their money for the Romans (tax collector). Then Jesus asks you to follow Him and comes to your house (Luke 5:27)!

DEEP DIVE

salvation lingo | Ryan kerrison

This week, we’re going to explore the biblical history and concepts of salvation, which, when examined at a basic level, begins with the justification of humanity.

We’re going to look at some key terminologies, and concepts within scripture, bearing in mind that the entire progressive narrative of scripture is a prelude and overture, culminating magnificently in the death, resurrection, and ascension of Christ. Unfortunately, this subject defies simplistic definitions, as it encompasses spiritual, individual, corporate, physical, objective, and subjective experiences, historical and eternal dimensions. However, this should not dissuade our pursuit of knowing Him and His Word, rather it should excite us, and call us to go from glory to glory and develop in wisdom and understanding.
