Gospel of Luke Part 49 – 9:37-45

The account we will study in this lesson happened right after Christ’s transfiguration when He came out of the mountain with Peter, James and John. The disciples not could cast the demon out of a boy, so the father waited for Jesus to return, not knowing how long that would be. When Jesus returned to the disciples camp, He was immediately plunged into ministering to the people. That’s when the desperate man begged Jesus to cast the demon out of the boy, and that is what Jesus did.

Gospel of Luke Part 47 – 9:23-27

The theme of this lesson can be simply stated as “The Cost of Discipleship.” Anyone that wants to be a follower of Jesus must understand what the Lord is teaching in the verses we are studying. These truths are so important that our eternal destiny hangs upon what we do with them.

Gospel of Luke Part 46 – 9:18-23

Jesus asked His disciples “Who do you say is the Son of Man?” Peter gave a clear. strong answer, “You are the Christ.” This lesson will focus on this account that is recorded in the Gospel of Luke. So who do you say that Jesus is?

Gospel of Luke Part 45 – 9:4-17

The topics of this lesson has to do with what Jesus taught the 12 apostles before He sent them out to minister and what happens after they return. Jesus wanted time to be alone with His disciples to prepare them for the time when He would be taken from them. He also had another agenda, which was to draw 20,000 people into the wilderness near Bethsaida so He could miraculously feed them. Here was another event where Jesus proved His divinity.

Gospel of Luke Part 44 – 8:51-9:3

There are two historical accounts we will look at in this study and learn how they apply to our lives today. The first is the raising from the dead Jairus’ daughter and the second is when Jesus sent out the 12 apostles to heal the sick, cast out devils and preach the Good News of the Kingdom of God.

Gospel of Luke Part 43 – 8:40-50

In this lesson we will look at two people that were touched by Jesus and how their lives were never the same. The first is a religious leader and the second a suffering nameless woman. These two accounts are powerful and faith stirring.

Gospel of Luke Part 42 – 8:26-39

This lesson is on the man who was possessed by a legion of demons that Jesus set free. This is an awesome story about the love and power of God revealed to a poor, miserable sinner. Don’t miss this episode of the Radical Truth Podcast.

Gospel of Luke Part 41 – 8:16-25

What did Jesus teach after He gave the Parable of the Sower? That will be the first part of this lesson. Then we will examine what Jesus did when His mother and brothers visited Him while He was teaching in a home. The final account we will look at is when Jesus calmed a raging sea. There’s some really good stuff in this lesson.

Gospel of Luke Part 39 – 8:1-10

We begin chapter eight of the Gospel of Luke in this episode. In this chapter we find the well known Parable of the Sower. We will only be digging into the preliminary points to this parable, but it is still some good stuff. One issue we will look at is how Jesus had women disciples traveling with Him. This is an interesting lesson.

Gospel of Luke Part 37 – 7:24-38

What Jesus said about John the Baptist is a major portion of this lesson. What made John a man of God will do the same for any that are willing to follow Jesus as the Bible teaches. After this we will begin looking at the account of a sinner woman that seeks after Jesus who was eating at Simon the Pharisees house.

Gospel of Luke Part 36 – 7:18-24

We will study in this lesson what Jesus said to a couple of John the Baptist’s disciples that were sent by the great prophet to inquire if Jesus was the promised Messiah. Then we will see what Jesus said about John after the prophet’s disciples left to tell John what they saw and heard. There are some wonderful truths in this lesson.

Gospel of Luke Part 35 – 7:1-17

There are two historical accounts that we will examine from the seventh chapter of the Gospel of Luke. The first is the extraordinary faith of an officer in the Roman military. The second is of the mercy Jesus showed to a widow who was taking her dead son to be buried. There are some powerful truths in this lesson, so don’t miss it.

Gospel of Luke Part 34 – 6:39-49

Jesus said in Luke 6:39, “Can a blind man lead a blind man? Will they not both fall into a pit?” What does it mean to be spiritually blind and what are the consequences? Equally as much, what does it mean to have spiritual eyes to see the truth and to know Him Who is the Truth? We will dig into these questions and others besides as we study the last eleven verses of the sixth chapter of the Gospel of Luke.

Gospel of Luke Part 31 – 2:40-52 and 6:24

There are two parts to this lesson. The first is finishing Luke chapter 2 where we will look at the only Biblical account of Jesus as a young boy. The second is our returning to Luke chapter 6 where we stopped two months ago to study the Christmas story during the Christmas season. In chapter 6 of Luke we will look at one very challenging verse, which is the 24th where Jesus said, “But woe to you who are rich, for you have already received your comfort.” Don’t miss this lesson.

Gospel of Luke Part 30 – 2:31-39

We will look at two godly people that were in the Temple in Jerusalem when Jesus was being dedicated to God 40 days after He was born. The first we began to study in our last episode and this is Simeon and the second is Anna. There are some wonderful truths about the faith that we will examine in this lesson.

Gospel of Luke Part 29 – 2:15-30

This is a continuation of the Christmas story. We will finish looking at the shepherds that went to see Jesus. Then we will move on to what happens during the next month after our Savior’s birth. The first event was His circumcision and the second was His dedication in the Temple in Jerusalem along with Mary’s purification. There are some practical principles that come out in this lesson that will help anyone who wants to be a follower of Jesus.

Gospel of Luke Part 28 – 2:1-14

We are studying the birth of Christ in this lesson. We will also get into the shepherds being visited by a host of angel that told them Messiah had just been born in Bethlehem. This is a fun story that’s packed full of some great truths about the Christmas story.

Gospel of Luke Part 27 – 1:56-80

We are still in the midst of the Christmas story in this lesson. The birth of John is the primary focus in this study. John is the cousin of Jesus who would one day be the prophet who prepares the way for Messiah. There’s a lot of truth presented on the Christmas story that many aren’t familiar with, so listen and learn. Merry Christmas!!!

Gospel of Luke Part 26 – 1:34-55

This lesson continues to examine the Christmas story according to Luke. We begin by studying Mary’s response to the angel Gabriel and her visit to her cousin Elizabeth. We will then look at what happens when these two women of God meet and how the Lord is glorified through it. There is a lot of good and exciting theology in this lesson, along with the hope of Christ coming into the world.

Gospel of Luke Part 25 – 1:18-33

As we study the Christmas story in this lesson we will look at what happened to Zechariah when the angel Gabriel visited him. Then we will study Mary’s response to Gabriel’s greeting. There is a big contrast between the two and some good lessons to be learned.
