On every page, in every theme, in every major character and every major plot twist, we are invited to see God’s unfolding work to make all things new and whole in Jesus.
Gospel: Luke 24:1-12 (Easter Sunday: Series C)
Jesus died for the people who put Him to death. Jesus rose for the people whose minds rejected the idea of a resurrection.
Gospel: Luke 19:28-40 (Palm Sunday: Series C)
The image on Palm Sunday is about something so primordial, so powerful and ancient, so deep, that it would shatter any kind of limits. It would break through any attempt to restrain it.
Gospel: Luke 20:9-20 (Lent 5: Series C)
This living Word breaks and crushes. It comes down as crushing judgment on those who reject the Son. But it promises to heal and restore all those who fall on the Son broken, contrite, and in faith.
Gospel: Luke 4:16-30 (Epiphany 3: Series C)
During this season of Epiphany, we experience more than the revelation of who Jesus is. We also celebrate how Jesus makes God fully known.
Gospel: Luke 3:15-22 (The Baptism of Our Lord: Series C)
Not only does God reveal the identity of Jesus in this season through what we see and hear Jesus doing and saying, but God also reveals His gracious will through Jesus despite what we see and hear.
Gospel: Luke 2:40-52 (Christmas 2: Series C)
The episode of the boy Jesus in the Temple raises questions. It raised questions for Mary (and Joseph) and it raises questions for us.
