Luke 1:47 – and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior. In this study, using Mary as a case study, we will be looking into how we can focus on the Lord who brings us true joy even in potentially damaging circumstances.
Luke 18:14 – “I tell you that this man, rather than the other, went home justified before God. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.” In this study, we will compare these two men, their behaviour and their prayers in order to find out why is it that the tax collector was justified before God, and not the Pharisee.
Luke 13:4 – Or those eighteen who died when the tower in Siloam fell on them—do you think they were more guilty than all the others living in Jerusalem? In this study we will look into three points that Jesus taught through the analogy of the Tower of Siloam.
Luke 9:57 – As they were walking along the road, a man said to him, “I will follow you wherever you go.” In this study, we will examine how plain passion without understanding the cost of God’s mission is not appreciated.
Luke 6:37 – Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. In this study, we will examine the relationship between judging, condemning, and the need of forgiving; with particular focus on the virtue of forgiveness.
Luke 1:37 – For nothing is impossible with God. In this study we will examine the omnipotence of God with close reference to the events that led up to the nativity.
Luke 23:21 – But they kept shouting, “Crucify him! Crucify him!” In this study we will analyse the mentality of the crowd who shouted for the crucifixion of Jesus despite Pilate’s reluctance and translate it to modern times.
Luke 5:8 – When Simon Peter saw this, he fell at Jesus’ knees and said, “Go away from me, Lord; I am a sinful man!” In this study we will examine’s Peter’s first understanding that Jesus is Lord and track his progress from this first moment to faith to his subsequent acts of faith.
Luke 9:23 – If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. In this study, we will examine what it means to deny ourselves and take up the cross, especially applying it to our cultural context today.
Matthew 6:27 – Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? Why do we worry? Can we change things by worrying? Can we feel better from worrying? No, probably not. Jesus tells us not to worry, because we have the Lord.
Father, into your hands I commit my spirit. Luke 23:46 is the seventh and the last saying of Jesus on the cross. With his last breath, Jesus said this and died. How does this verse apply to us 2000 years later?
