Luke’s Jesus

In chapter 7, Luke invites his readers to ask “Who is Jesus?” and.”Where did he get his authority?”

But Luke keeps exploding the answers of Jesus’ contemporaries in order to force us to confront the unexpected reality of Jesus’ person and power.

Listen as Pastor Hinkle connects the dots to reveal Luke’s picture of Jesus.

Lazarus, Come Out!

Jesus’ friend, Lazarus, died while Jesus was a few days away. When Jesus arrived he found Lazarus’s sisters weeping and Lazarus rotting in his tomb. Jesus wept with them before raising Lazarus to life and in his tears you’ll find the reason for the cross.

Signs of the Kingdom

Audio Sermon  Mark 7:31-37

In this sermon, I speak about a time Jesus healed a man who was deaf and could not speak well. For people who knew the Old Testament book of Isaiah, this would have been a confirmation of Jesus’ preaching that the kingdom of God was at hand. But there is more to the story than that. It is part of a series of accounts in Mark’s Gospel that shows the breadth of Christ’s compassion.

This sermon was preached at Zion Lutheran Church in Wilton, Iowa. My thanks to their AV team recording the sermon.

More Than a Prophet

Audio Sermon Luke 7:11-17

Last week we heard that Jesus had healed a man from a distance with only his word.

In today’s lesson, Jesus restores the life of a widow’s son.

Both accounts are part of a series of episodes from the life of Jesus that Luke uses to invite us to ask “Who is Jesus?” and.”Where did he get his authority?”.

But Luke keeps exploding  the answers of Jesus’ contemporaries in order to force us to confront the unexpected reality of Jesus’ person and power.
