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.
As we saw last Sunday, storms will arise in our lives. These storms are opportunities for our faith in Jesus to be tested. At the end of His calming the storm and waves right before his disciples' eyes, Jesus’ simple question to them was, "Where is your faith?" Now, their faith will be challenged even further as they watch Jesus calmly and powerfully cast out demons from a possessed man. We will observe the fact that not all people, or created beings, respond to Jesus in the same way.
