James Tissot, detail of 'All the City Was Gathered at His Door'Series two continues with Jesus' ministry in Galilee. Each instance that Luke records has important lessons for disciples to grasp. For example:

  • Healing the centurion's servant -- Jesus' needs only to speak the command to heal, distance is no obstacle.
  • Anointing by a sinful woman -- understanding Jesus' forgiveness will result in an extravagant outpouring of love.
  • Calming the storm -- even natural events are under his rule.
  • Touching the him of his garment -- our faith must reach out and take hold of Jesus.

We also examine the Parable of the Soils (or the Sower), the feeding of the 5,000, Peter's great confession of faith, and what it means to take up your cross daily in fresh surrender to the Master. When Jesus rebukes his disciples' unbelief, he rebukes ours. And when he confronts the apostles' pride -- he confronts ours, as well. Sign up to continue your disciple studies at Jesus' feet, and let him continue to mold you.
