The Gospel writer Luke was a physician by trade. It is perhaps from this training and experience that he was led to write such comprehensive and meticulous books about the ministry of Christ and the early church. Join us over the next four weeks as we explore details from the Doctor’s Report.
Part 1: The Same Old Tricks
In this account, Luke records the story of Jesus being tempted in the wilderness by the devil. As we will see, we have a cunning enemy who twists and turns good things and biblical words into sinful traps and snares. Join us as we consider the significance of Jesus’ response and ours.
Part 2: Jesus is for the afflicted
“Jesus is for the Afflicted” (Luke 8) Luke records many instances of the healing power of Jesus. In chapter 8, Luke highlights the miraculous degree of these healings. Throughout each instance, we see Jesus’ heart for those who are physically hurting.
Part 3: The Thing About Religion
Jesus faced many opponents during His earthly ministry. In chapter 11, Luke records an interesting interaction between Jesus and the most religious people of His day. It results in Jesus pronouncing “Woes” over those who trust in their own righteous works. Join us as we discuss what it means to trust fully in Jesus, our Perfect Deliverer.
Part 4 : A Fatal Disease
As Jesus was on his way to Jerusalem, he encountered a sick man who desperately wanted to catch a glimpse of The Miracle Worker. This man caught more than a glimpse; He spent the day with Jesus, who would heal him from the inside out. Join us as we look at a fatal disease and the prescription to heal that Jesus provides for us.
