This is the climax. Jesus has made his decision, and he now dies the substitutionary death for sinners on the cross. This is the part of the story where everybody is on edge. As Jesus is hanging on the cross, we the readers are hanging on every word. What is going to...

The Silence

The Silence

This is the false ending. Every good story has a moment directly after the climax when the reader thinks the story is over. Yet, it’s not. Jesus has died. His body is removed from the cross and buried in a tomb. All of the hope that came with Jesus’ first coming is...

The Victory

The Temple

Luke: The Good Son

Luke: The Good Son

Main Idea: Our gracious, heavenly Father appeals to those who think they do no wrong to see and celebrate new life in Christ.   The older son responds in anger to the celebrated return of his brother. 25 “Now his older son was in the field, and as he came and...

Luke: Reason to Rejoice

Luke: Reason to Rejoice

Main Idea: When one sinner repents, saints and angels rejoice.   Jesus Christ receives sinners. 1 Now the tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to hear him. 2 And the Pharisees and the scribes grumbled, saying, “This man receives sinners and eats with...
