Luke 20:45–21:6 A religion for the rich, and a poor widow

The story of the "Widow's Mite" is often used to motivate Christians to part with their money, but that is not what it is about.  Out of this woman's piety, she impoverished herself for a bad cause, and nothing here says Jesus was happy with that.  (Erik Pattison, 15 April 2018)

Luke 20:40-44 – Your Christ is too small

Jesus challenged the small views that people had of the Christ – because it put them in mortal danger.  A big view of Christ will save us from our fears.  (Neville Reid, 8 April 2018)

1 Peter 1:1-9 – Easter Day

Christians believe that God raised Christ from the dead.  Well and good; but what does that have to do with us?  (Erik Pattison, 1 April 2018)

Luke 20:27-39 – Children of the Resurrection

Facing another trick question, Jesus gave us some pretty important teaching about what the resurrection life will be like.  (Erik Pattison, 25 March 2018)

Luke 20:17-26 – Render unto Caesar, render unto God

People quote this enigmatic saying as if it was easy to do, but it is not.  How do we live under God and under the government?  (Erik Pattison, 18 March 2018)

Luke 20:9-19 – Rejecting Jesus

What happens when people reject God?  Are we in danger of doing that?  (Neville Reid, 11 March 2018)

Luke 19:45–20:8 – By what authority?

Jesus' conduct was a challenge to the high-ups in Jerusalem.  When they asked him about his authority, he asked them a sharp question straight back.  Where did his authority come from, and where should we look in our own times when there is such a crisis of authority?  (Erik Pattison, 4 March 2018)
