Radical

During his ministry Jesus often taught through parables, introducing stories familiar to his listeners — “A man was going from Jerusalem to Jerhico when he was attacked by robbers…” “A certain man was preparing a great banquet and inviting many guests…”  “There was a man who had two sons…”  

Each story would end with a twist; a question or command that would determine whether you understood its meaning.  

Which of these three do you think was a neighbor?  

Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life.  

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

Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom.  

His stories appeared straightforward, but his lessons ran counter to the world’s prevailing wisdom and concerns.  

For our final series from the Gospel of Luke, Radical, we return to Jesus’ ministry in the time period between his revolutionary arrival and triumphant entry into Jerusalem.  We’ll examine Luke’s account for insight on what it was like to walk side by side with Jesus. Join us at GraceCity, where we’ll discover that a revolution of hearts and minds, coupled with the resurrection power of Christ, gives us eyes to see and ears to hear Jesus. With that wisdom, we may indeed recognize Jesus preparing in advance radical works for us to accomplish!  His invitation is simple. “Follow me.”
