This teaching on Luke chapter 18, verses 15-43, was given by pastor Barry Forder on 18th June 2023.
In the study we continue our journey through Luke, as Jesus moves closer to Jerusalem for the ‘final showdown’.
We see here the disciples rebuked for trying to stop the children from coming to Jesus, to which Jesus explains that the kingdom of God is for those with a child-like simple confident faith. He then answers the question of a ‘certain’ Jewish leader – probably a member of the Sanhedrin. Contrary to the commonly held belief, riches are not a sign of God’s approval, and very often those with them allow them to become a barrier to trusting God.
The chapter ends with yet another healing, as Jesus shows compassion on a blind man.
May you be blessed and encouraged by this study.
