Lord of Sabbath Rest
Luke 6:1-11

by Tan Huai Tze

In his conflict with the religious elite, Jesus reveals to us God’s original intention for Sabbath rest. It is for nourishment and restoration. A nourishment and restoration that can only be ours through the Gospel.

Embrace the New
Luke 5:33-39

by Joel Sim

Jesus responds to the religious leaders who are questioning what His disciples were doing. In this passage, Jesus' teachings are emphatic: our old ways of self-righteousness are incompatible with the new ways of Jesus. As such, we need to lay aside our self-worked religion before we can receive the new wine of divine grace.

Calling and Controversy
Luke 5:27-32

by Tan Huai Tze

Jesus called Levi to follow him. This is controversial because Levi is a despised “tax collector”, a traitor to his people, and one who is unscrupulous and dishonest. But as grace touches Levi’s heart, he leaves his former ways behind and now uses all his resources to celebrate Jesus and propagate the good news. On the other hand, the religious Pharisees who depend on their own righteousness grumble against Jesus’ disciples. This gives Jesus the opportunity to spell out clearly that his mission is to come for the sick, unrighteous and sinful.

The Forgiveness That We Need
Luke 5:17-26

by Joel Sim

Through this story that involves the healing of a paralytic, Jesus helps us to see our most important need: the forgiveness of our sins. It clarifies who needs forgiveness, why forgiveness is needed, and what forgiveness does to us. With this forgiveness, we have the strength and freedom to walk in the ways of Jesus.

When Jesus Cleanses
Luke 5:12-16

by Tan Huai Tze

Jesus heals a man with leprosy. Leprosy meant that the man would have been socially, emotionally and personally isolated from others because he was unclean. To heal him meant that Jesus was also restoring him into a relationship with God and God’s people. This is what we all need.

When Jesus Calls
Luke 5:1-11

by Tan Huai Tze

When Jesus calls his first followers, Simon, James and John, he demonstrates his power and purity through the things he knows. He shows them their sinfulness and they are terrified. But he shows great grace is allaying their fears and calling them to become ‘fishers of people’.

The Liberating Messiah of God's Kingdom
Luke 4:31-44

by Aaron Akins

As Jesus begins His ministry in Capernaum, Luke's emphasis turns from the content of the Messiah's message to what He did. As He preached the good news of the kingdom, Jesus healed the afflicted and exorcised demons as a demonstration of His power. All of these served to authenticate the kingdom message that Jesus came to proclaim.

The Liberating Message of God's Kingdom
Luke 4:14-30

by Joel Sim

After overcoming the Devil's temptations, Jesus Christ began His earthly ministry in Galilee, where the focus is on portraying Him as a preacher, healer, and prophet. As Jesus ministered in the synagogue in Nazareth, He announced that He was the Spirit-anointed Messiah who came to proclaim the forgiveness of sins and liberate the poor and oppressed. Those who recognise their poverty and trust solely in the Messiah will find a place for them in God's glorious kingdom.
