The Christ Must Be Killed

Luke 9:18-22 — “Whom say ye that I am? Peter answering said, The Christ of God.” Peter’s confession is the foundation of the church. If a person doesn’t share Peter’s belief concerning the identity of Jesus then they cannot call themself a Christian! But what exactly did Peter mean when He said this? What did Peter…

A Day Off Interrupted

Luke 9:10-17 — In this text we have what is probably Jesus’ most famous miracle, the feeding of the 5,000. It is a story many of heard for the first time as little children and we know it well, but have you ever considered the context? Have you thought about what Jesus was doing in…

The Silent Screaming Of A Guilty Conscience

Luke 8:40-48 — “A woman having an issue of blood twelve years…came behind [Jesus], and touched the border of his garment.”  This story at the end of Luke chapter 8 is quite familiar, but do we know what life was really like for this sick woman? Do we understand why she tried to secretly touch Jesus’ clothes?…
