Luke 23 & 24

LukeIntroduction1 God opens our minds so we can understand the Scriptures. In Luke, we have read about the life and ministry of Jesus. The disciples saw many miracles and heard the teachings of Jesus - yet they didn't fully understand his purpose until after he rose from the dead.

Jesus said to them, "This is what I told you while I was still with you: Everything must be fulfilled that is written about me in the Law of Moses, the Prophets, and the Psalms.

Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures. He told them,  "This is what is written: The Christ will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, and repentance and forgiveness fo sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things. I am going to send you what my Father has promised; but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high." Luke 24:44-49

What was the gift the Father promised? 

And afterward,     I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy,     your old men will dream dreams,     your young men will see visions. Even on my servants, both men and women,     I will pour out my Spirit in those days. I will show wonders in the heavens     and on the earth,     blood and fire and billows of smoke. The sun will be turned to darkness     and the moon to blood     before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord. And everyone who calls     on the name of the Lord will be saved; for on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem     there will be deliverance,     as the Lord has said, even among the survivors     whom the Lord calls. Joel 2:28-32

It may feel hard at first. Jen Wilkin in her book Women of the Word reassures us, "...Bible study becomes more intuitive the more you do it. It is the process for an orderly, long-term building project with cumulative benefits. Even if you are in a season of life that won't allow you to use ALL the tools of the process exhaustively, you can use them as far as your time does allow. Build slowly if you must, but by all means, build."

One important aspect that should not be overlooked during our time in God's Word is prayer. Before, during, and after. As Jen Wilkin says,

Prayer is what changes our study from the pursuit of knowledge to the pursuit of God himself.

Luke 21 & 22

LukeIntroduction1 Watch out!

Don't worry.

Be careful.

Pray!

When the end seems near (which it has ever since Jesus left!) Jesus calls us to trust him. He came to serve us. He came to fight for us. We don't need to do the worrying or the fighting.

I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world. John 16:33

Even the disciples had it wrong. They argued who was the greatest, fell asleep when Jesus asked them to keep watch and pray, and Peter raised his sword to defend Jesus.

It's hard for our nature to grasp that our Lord serves us... defends us... loves us... and saves us. That's why we need to hear the Gospel again and again. The First became Last so that we may be won!

Luke 19 & 20

LukeIntroduction1 The moral of Aesop's fable "The Rooster and the Fox" is

The trickster is easily tricked.

In Luke 19-20 the Pharisees, experts of the law, and leaders tried to catch Jesus doing anything wrong. They even sent spies to find something bad about Jesus with the intent to imprison or even kill him. Ironically, the Pharisees were the ones that were exposed and they found nothing on Jesus.

"Everyday he was teaching at the temple. But the chief priests, the teachers of the law and the leaders among the people were trying to kill him. Yet they could not find any way to do it, because all the people hung on his words." Luke 19:47-48

"The teachers of the law and the chief priests looked for a way to arrest him immediately, because they knew he had spoken this parable against them. But they were afraid of the people." Luke 20:19

"They were unable to trap him in what he had said there in public. And astonished by his answer, they became silent." Luke 20:26

"Some of the teachers of the law responded, "Well said, teacher!" And no one dared to ask him any more questions." Luke 20:39-40

Jesus didn't get distracted by their traps, he stuck to his mission. As he told Zacchaeus,

the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost. Luke 19:10

Luke 17 & 18

LukeIntroduction1 Ever feel like a beggar when you pray to God? The apostles said, "Increase our faith!"

The ten men who had leprosy called out in a loud voice, "Have pity on us!"

The tax collector stood at a distance... beat his breast, and said, "God, have mercy on me a sinner!"

The widow kept coming to him with the plea, "Grant me justice against my adversary."

Those who listened to Jesus asked, "Who then can be saved?"

A blind man sitting by the roadside begging called out, "Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!" He shouted all the more...

Sounds like a lot of begging doesn't it?

When Martin Luther was on his death bed, a scrap of paper in his pocket read,

"We are beggars; this is true."

Everything that we have - our health, our possessions, our family, the food we eat - all of them are from the Lord's hand and the same is true when it comes to our salvation!

When Jesus taught his parables he drew the listeners to Himself as the provider, healer, and loving Savior. Throughout the book of Luke we read how others passed the foreigner by, looked down on the children, and insulted beggars on the side of the road. BUT Jesus stopped. He listened with an attentive ear. He hushed their cries by healing them physically. He recognized their faith and assured them of their forgiveness! He still does this with us today!

Jesus answers:

"Rise and go; your faith made you well."

"The kingdom of God is within you." 

"Will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night?"

"Everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted."

"Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these."  

"Receive your sight; your faith has healed you."

"What is impossible with men is possible with God."

Luke 13 & 14

LukeIntroduction1 *Shifty eyes* Jesus was being carefully watched. The Pharisees and experts of the law wanted to trap Jesus for any fault. Even if it was framed. They were tricksters. Jesus can read hearts and knew that the outward confessions of the Pharisees did not match their unrepentant hearts.

When the ordinary people heard Jesus' responses to the Pharisees and experts of the law the Bible says,

the people were delighted with all the wonderful things he [Jesus] was doing.

Jesus' miracles proved a large contrast between the Pharisees' hearts and his love. They were schooled.

The humble were lifted up and the proud were cast down.
