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.
On one of the days while He was teaching the people in the temple and preaching the gospel, the chief priests and the scribes with the elders confronted Him, and they declared, saying to Him, “Tell us by what authority You are doing these things, or who is the one who gave You this authority?” But He replied to them, “I will also ask you a question..." (Luke 20:1-3)
For this Sunday's worship service, we will look together at Luke 20:1-8, and consider Jesus' authority. How did Jesus deal with the questioning of His authority by the Jewish religious leaders at that time? Please prayerfully prepare yourself for the worship service, as we come together to lift up our voices in singing praises to God and open our hearts up to hear from God's word.
