Luke 23: 47 The centurion, seeing what had happened, praised God and said, “Surely this was a righteous man.” 48 When all the people who had gathered to witness this sight saw what took place, they beat their breasts and went away.

Luke 22:   35 Then Jesus asked them, “When I sent you without purse, bag or sandals, did you lack anything?” “Nothing,” they answered.  36 He said to them, “But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one. 37 It is written: ‘And he was numbered with the

04/21/19 – Luke 20:27-47; Psalm 89:14-37; Proverbs 13:17-19

One of the realities of the question asked of Jesus by the Sadducees in Luke 20:27-33 is based on the Sadducee’s teaching that there was no resurrection of the dead.  And we see Jesus not only answer their question about “whose wife” she would be he also addresses the overall question of resurrection. Luke 20:  37 But

04/19/19 — Luke 19:28-48; Psalm 88:1-8; Proverbs 13:12-14

I enjoy reading history and have read several parts of the works of Josephus, the Jewish historian, who recorded the details of the Jewish nation, including the fall of Jerusalem.  And his history verifies the prophecies of Christ as he enters Jerusalem for the lat time: Luke 19:  41 As he approached Jerusalem and saw the city,

Luke 19:   11 While they were listening to this, he went on to tell them a parable, because he was near Jerusalem and the people thought that the kingdom of God was going to appear at once. 12 He said: “A man of noble birth went to a distant country to have himself appointed king and then to return. 13 So he

04/14/19 – Luke 16:19-17:10; Psalm 83:1-18; Proverbs 13:4

As we read through scripture we see Jesus offer many instructions and “words of warning” to His followers.   And today we see a very personal warning for each of us: Luke 17: 1  Jesus said to his disciples: “Things that cause people to stumble are bound to come, but woe to anyone through whom they come. 2 It would be

04/10/19 – Luke 13:22-14:6; Psalm 79:1-13; Proverbs 12:26

I share today two similar wise maxims — one from the inspire Word of God — the other from one of our nations’s “founding fathers.” Proverbs 12:   26 The righteous choose their friends carefully,     but the way of the wicked leads them astray.   Benjamin Franklin – “Be slow in choosing a friend, slower in changing.”

04/09/19 – Luke 13:1-21; Psalm 78:65-72; Proverbs 12:25

Today’s reading contains an emotional word picture of the misuse of God’s word & adherence to tradition by a synagogue leader vs. the recognition of much-needed compassion Luke 13: 2 When Jesus saw her, he called her forward and said to her, “Woman, you are set free from your infirmity.” 13 Then he put his hands on her, and immediately she
