First week of a six-week series called Reversal and Restoration. Throughout the Gospel of Luke, we hear that God through Jesus continues the fulfillment of God's promises. Focusing on the purpose of his mission and ministry, Jesus brings controversy as he teaches and heals, reversing the norms and rules of society and religion. Jesus' mission is Jubilee for all people.
This series continues to explore how the promises of God are fulfilled in the birth, life, death and resurrection of Jesus through the lens of the Gospel of Luke. Yet those promises are not always what we expect or think that we need. Instead, Jesus’ mission and ministry brings with it controversy, reversal, and confusion. Ultimately, his mission prepares his disciples including us to become apostles sharing the Good News of love and grace to ALL people in both word and deed.
