I’ve got good news and bad news…… – Sherri Guenther Trautwein

 

Luke 4:14-30

 

In a recent sermon, Carol encouraged us to find a door to Scripture that we can walk through as we enter a New Year. Today, we will explore a story from Luke’s Gospel where we see Jesus reading and interpreting Scripture – a story that captures very mixed, even violent, responses from the crowd. What can we learn from Jesus’ approach to Scripture? Do we see ourselves in the reactions of the crowd? Why is it that words of good news can sometime provoke mixed feelings?
