This radio talk was
first given as a much longer sermon at Church of the Messiah where I serve as
Pastor. It was part of a sermon series through all of the Gospel of Luke
entitled, "Luke: Jesus For Pagans And Skeptics."
1. Everyone, even His
closest disciples, thought that Jesus was discredited and dead - and that He
would stay discredited and dead.
2. Luke is saying
that what happened to Jesus is as real as your bank records, the NBA Finals
stats and the list of Canada's Prime Ministers.
3. Luke tells the
good news that Jesus died on a Friday and that the grave was empty on the
Sunday, because Jesus had been raised and vindicated by God the Father.
4. Jesus is not an
illustration of what happens to everyone because they are human. He is God's
promised power of salvation to everyone who believes in Him.
5. Jesus is the same
person on Easter Sunday as He was on Good Friday, but now He is resurrected with
a resurrected body.
6. Jesus teaches that
His betrayal, crucifixion, death, resurrection and glorification are seen in
all of the Bible; that is what the Bible is all about.
7. Dear God, please
grow in me a humble trusting, walking, knowing of the greatness, glory and
grace of my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, crucified and risen.
