The book called Luke in the Bible, was written by a Gentile believer named Luke, who was a close associate of the Apostle Paul. He set out to carefully investigate the truth concerning Jesus Christ, using the eyewitness accounts of those who were with and knew Jesus and His ministry. His intent in writing this Gospel was so that his readers would know the truth regarding Jesus and what they have been taught concerning Him. It is our hope in studying this Gospel, that we too would better understand the truth concerning Jesus, so that we may better know Him and make Him known to others.
Last Sunday, we saw how Jesus dealt with rejection. Today, we will look at how Jesus dealt with fame. We can see how finicky people can be. At one moment, they could be in awe of Jesus, and the next moment they can hate Him so much so as to want to kill Him. As we look at Luke 4:31-44, we will look at what impressed and drew people to Jesus. We will also glean from the passage, what mattered most to Jesus based on His response to the crowds that flocked to Him.
