Chapter 22 - Snapshots of Jesus as seen through the Gospels; Gospel of Luke: Mark Lanier

Snapshots of Jesus from the Gospel of Luke. Mark taught today’s lesson about some of the women Luke records in His Gospel as cultural outsiders who became insiders.

  1. Mark referenced several women passages and then focused on a first story where Jesus raises a widow’s son from the dead. 1) The Lord had compassion on the widow. 2) He said ""Do not weep"". 3) He touches the plank holding the dead man. 4) He speaks to the dead man to rise. A second story was when a woman anointed Jesus with Alabaster ointment.
  2. The challenge for today - We see the world and its people one way, but God sees it as it really is. God wants us to find the outsiders and make them insiders.
  3. Points for home.

See the compassion of Jesus.

See the compassion of Jesus on others.

See the compassion of Jesus on me. Mark plans to continue the study of women from the Gospel of Mark in future class(s).
