Questions and Controversies in Jerusalem

In the last sermon, we saw that the time for Jesus to be taken up to heaven had drawn near, so he resolutely set out for Jerusalem (9:51). While many events and teaching opportunities occurred in the intervening time (9:52-19:1), we will look at several key episodes in Jesus’ life as he approaches and enters Jerusalem during Passion Week. These incidents will again highlight important themes characteristic of Luke’s portrait of Jesus the Messiah.
