Chapter 20 - Snapshots of Jesus as seen through the Gospels; Gospel of Luke: Mark Lanier

Mark continued sharing Snapshots of Jesus from the Gospel of Luke. This week’s theme focused on U-turns. Luke shows how the world is off course, but God is reversing the world.

Good news:

  • Elizabeth becomes pregnant in her old age with John the Baptist who will turn many of the children of Israel to God.
  • Mary learns she is pregnant with Jesus who will sacrifice his life for the world.

Bad news:

  • God has scattered the proud and mighty.
  • Good news for the needy. Bad news for the self sufficient.
  • Mark compares Matthew’s 9 Blessings with Luke’s 4 Blessings & 4 Woes.

Our faith needs to change our mission, vision, and values. Mark concludes with his Snapshot Points for Home: I want to refocus. God does great things. I want on Team-God.

Length: 56mins
