– The Gospel of Luke chapter 4, verses 13 to 30 - “Walking and living in the reality of the fulfilled work of the Lord Jesus Christ” Our sermon title reflects the words of Christ as He sits down after reading from the Prophet Isaiah, “v21, and He began to say unto them, “This day is this Scripture fulfilled in your ears.” Within the visible church of Christ, (that is, those who profess to be Christians – God knows who are His), there is contention for ‘who’ Israel is, and its relationship to Christ, the Church and the end times. We contend that Israel, consists of that believing remnant of Jews from all ages past, present and future, along with Gentile believers who have been grafted into that same Israel, and who make up now, the gloriously expanded ‘Israel of God’, or the ‘church’ or the ‘New Jerusalem’ or ‘Mount Zion’. All names used in the Scriptures to define the elect people of God. Such a notion to many professors of Christ today is anathema, to them, as it was to the Jews of Christ’s own time. We see this sense of rejection of Christ and hatred of the thought of Gentiles being part of the Israel of God as being utterly hostile to their thinking and possibly as a blasphemous proof that Jesus could never be their anticipated, long awaited Messiah or Christ. We see it in their outrage at Christ in the passage before us today, (Luke 4:28), when on hearing of this possibility, they were ‘filled with wrath’ and that they might also kill him by ‘casting Him down headlong’ off the cliff at Nazareth. (v29) But Luke introduces this story, or event in Christ’s ministry at the beginning of His ministry, unlike Matthew and Mark, for the reason that Luke is a Gentile, and wants early on in his writing of Christ to witness to us as outsiders looking ‘IN’ on the Jewish religion, that the Jews do have the ‘truth’ in the Scriptures and that these Scriptures are ‘Good news’ both for the Jews then and now, and the Gentiles, then and now. Ephesians 3:3 How that by revelation He (God) made known unto me (Paul) the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words, 4 Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ) 5 Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit; 6 That the Gentiles should be fellow-heirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel: Paul, a mentor and teacher to Luke, has clearly pressed this truth (by God’s grace) onto the thinking of Luke, and as we read this encounter of Christ with His native villagers in Nazareth, we see also, that Christ is seeking through His reference to First, Isaiah the Prophet (of 700 years prior to Christ), Second, Elijah the prophet, and Third, through Elisha the prophet, that this is also the truth that He is compelled to bring to the Jews of Nazareth as way of Good News, , “v21, and He began to say unto them, “This day is this Scripture fulfilled in your ears.”
The River Church of God Judges 13:1-7 13 Again the Israelites did evil in the Lord’s sight, so the Lord handed them over to the Philistines, who oppressed them for forty years.2 In those days a man named Manoah from the tribe of Dan lived in the town of Zorah. His wife was unable to become pregnant, and they had no children. 3 The angel of the Lord appeared to Manoah’s wife and said, “Even though you have been unable to have children, you will soon become pregnant and give birth to a son. 4 So be careful; you must not drink wine or any other alcoholic drink nor eat any forbidden food.[a] 5 You will become pregnant and give birth to a son, and his hair must never be cut. For he will be dedicated to God as a Nazirite from birth. He will begin to rescue Israel from the Philistines.” 6 The woman ran and told her husband, “A man of God appeared to me! He looked like one of God’s angels, terrifying to see. I didn’t ask where he was from, and he didn’t tell me his name. 7 But he told me, ‘You will become pregnant and give birth to a son. You must not drink wine or any other alcoholic drink nor eat any forbidden food. For your son will be dedicated to God as a Nazirite from the moment of his birth until the day of his death.’”
Do you love the Word of God? What Bible did Paul, Peter, John, James and Jude preach the Gospel from? What Bible did the Believers of the early Church read from? What Book did they use for worship? The answer to these questions is that they preached from the only Scriptures available to them, the Jewish Scriptures or Old Testament, and read too from this book and sang worship from the Book of Psalms. Do you love the Word of God? Do you read again and again the word of God contained in the Old Testament Scriptures? Do you find the Gospel on every page?
