We enjoyed another exciting week together “HAGAHing” over the Word of God! Â In class this week we looked a little further into the Jewish roots of the Gospels while also doing a quick survey of the socio-political climate in Israel at the time of Jesus’ birth. Â We spent the second half of class diving into Luke 1. Â You can download the audio of this week’s class here.
Our Readings for this week are as follows:
Thursday – Luke 3 (entire chapter)
Note:Â Also lookup the following three passages and see if you can connect them to Jesusâ€™ baptism! (Psalm 2:7, Gen. 22:2, Isa. 42:1)
Friday – Luke 4:1-13
Saturday – Luke 4:14-30
Monday – Luke 4:31-44
Tuesday – Luke 5:1-11
I also assigned 3 supplemental readings from 3 different books.Â You can pick those up from me Sunday if youâ€™d like a copy.
Weâ€™re off to a great start!Â Stay in the Word and begin to find your place in Godâ€™s Story â€œbetween the Trees!â€
