Jesus: Rejection at Home (Luke 4:14-30)

Phillip HopwoodPhillip Hopwood, February 7, 2016
Part of the Lent series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

From the beginning of his ministry, Luke shows that Jesus is indeed the Messiah that was expected, but he upset people by not acting as they expected.

He brought true freedom, not through earthly power and politics, religious piety, belligerence, jingoism or militarism. He brought it through God’s gracious loving mercy and forgiveness, and sacrifice, which are the essence of true power and freedom. He calls us to follow.

Tags: freedom, God’s grace, Jesus Christ, jingoism, love, Luke 4:14-30, mercy, militarism, power politics, religious piety, true freedom

    Hello Alex,

    You are are our first visitor to leave a comment, so many thanks! We hope you and many others will visit us and our website often!

  2. Paul has been undermined by other teachers of the gospel who contend he is not a very impressive speaker when he is with the Church in Corinth. This sermon addresses what our defense is when an attack comes against us that is rooted in the flesh.
