Luke (Program #39) – The Ministry of the Man-Savior in His Human Virtues with His Divine Attributes from Galilee to Jerusalem (19)

Luke Chapter 18 presents us with a parable of two men going up to the temple to pray. One, a religious leader, a Pharisee, and the other a sinner even an evil extortioner. The contrast in their prayer gives us an interesting insight into why the Lord Jesus was drawn not to the so called righteous but to the unrighteous, those who knew they were in captivity and in need of the Jubilee.

Luke (Program #34) – The Ministry of the Man-Savior in His Human Virtues with His Divine Attributes from Galilee to Jerusalem (14)

Luke 15 is a chapter with three tremendous parables including one of the best known in the whole Bible, the parable of the prodigal son. When you take these three parable together, they reveal to us the three persons of the Godhead. The Son is seen the first parable, the Spirit in the second, and the Father in the third, and all three bring us to salvation. Then, we come to another parable at the beginning of chapter 16. At first, it seems terribly out of place. The story of a steward, who threatened with the loss of His position, unrighteously deals with his master’s assets only to gain His praise. But as we will see today, these parables fit very well together.

We all know the story of the good Samaritan. Here’s a man walking down the road and he’s beaten up and left for dead by robbers, while many righteous people pass by to take no account of his pitiful condition. Then at last, a Samaritan, one from a rejected place, comes by and cares for the beaten man. It’s a wonderful story with a valuable moral. But to really understand it, we must know the characters. Who, for example, is the beaten man? And, who is the good Samaritan? If you’ve always thought the moral of this story is for us to be kind to our neighbors, you may want to pay particular attention to our program today because we will see in this parable in another light.
