The Son in the Synagogues (Part 1) (Luke 4:14-30)

Title: The Son in the Synagogues

Passage: Luke 4:14-30

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

In this passage, Luke introduces the preaching and teaching ministry of Jesus. He does not emphasize Jesus’ miracles, but draws our attention to his teaching. To do this, he chooses an episode from Jesus’ ministry in Galilee, when he came to his hometown of Nazareth. I want you to notice three aspects of Christ’s ministry:

  1. The Spirit’s Power upon Jesus’ Teaching (vv 14-15)
  2. The Messianic Anointing of for Jesus’ Teaching (vv 16-21)
  3. The Familiar Rejection of Jesus’ Teaching (vv 22-30)
