"Business people. We need believers to go out and let their lights shine and this culture today. And that's what happened in the first century because every believer understood they were called to do their part. They took risks. They loved their comfort zones. We see they're fearless preaching. They're expecting prayer and their willingness to obey god. But listen to this. The book of acts is simply a picture of normal christianity. It's normal christianity. Now as we read it. I don't know if that's normal. That seems pretty. Radical to me factor. The matter is it's normal and if it seems radical it's because we have diluted virgin we should be living like these first century believers impacting our culture. Now historically looking back. The book of acts was written over a thirty year period from around eight hundred thirty three to sixty three. of course. there's a lot of miracles a lot of amazing events but it's over thirty years. I don't think a miracle happened every day. But i think what you see. It's believers living by faith. Doing what god has called them to do. These weren't perfect christians. They made mistakes. They're they're little divisions their their disagreements. They're the problems there challenges but despite that they made a huge difference and turned their world upside down. Why can't we do the same thing. The author of the book of acts of the holy. Spirit speaking through dr luke luke. Because he has his own gospel. And what's unique about lucas. He was not one of the disciples. Walk with jesus. He came along later and apparently he was hired by a well to do christian. Who had the named theophilus so theophilus under wrote luke's research project to get the story of what happened in the life in ministry of jesus and luke with a great attention to detail and with a beautiful poetic pin gave us the gospel. We call luke and now here's his second riding also sponsored by the awful as called the book of acts but the difference between the gospel of luke and the book of axes and this particular document. Teddy road luke was part of the story. He was in on the action. He was an eyewitness to what was happening by the way the named theophilus means lover of god so this book wasn't just written for the awful. It's it was written for all of us for all of you. Who love god. We have the book of acts. And i might add. It's an unfinished book. Number really ended in a way chapters are still being written. I'm not suggesting we frightened you. Chapters and insert them in the bible to the book of acts. But i'm simply saying we should not put a period or god is put a comma. The work continues on the work of the church in the world. Today i can sum up the book of acts this way. It's a spirit of god. Working through the word of god and the hearts of the people of god. Let me say that again. It's a spirit of god. Working through the word of god in the hearts of the people of god so let's read now some verses from the book of acts and then i will give you my first point. Let's read acts chapter one versus one two three and by the way. I'm reading from the new living translation. Luke writes in my first book. I told you theophilus about everything..

"It's time for us to travel east again. In this episode we encountered the towering figure of cyril of alexandria cyril may have been born to lead church in alexandria. He was certainly groomed for it. Throughout cereals young life his uncle theophilus had reigned as bishop and the office ruled with a heavy hand. You might remember him. From several past episodes. It was the office who encouraged divisions between various groups of egyptian monks. It was theophilus. Who worked with epa fania of cyprus to conduct an international purge of origins influence in the church. It was the office who orchestrated the downfall of the bishop of constantinople. John chris system. The office was jealous for the power of the egyptian church. Since the time of the apostles alexandria had been honored as one of the three major bishoprics of the church. The others were roman antioch. But in the fourth century another city the imperial capital constantinople rose in prominence and importance. The awfulness feared the eclipse of his own churches influence and resented the power. The bishop of constantinople enjoyed simply because of his access to the emperor and the year four. Three he presided at the senate of the oak. The kangaroo court that deposed john chris system and prepared the way for his exile and death. The office was accompanied on that venture by his nephew. Cyril who was probably in his mid twenties cyril surely remained in close contact with his uncle and may have continued working with them. The office would rule as bishop for another nine years when he died in four. Twelve cyril was chosen to be his successor. Riots followed the announcement. Some alexandrian had grown weary of theophilus brutal style of governance and they wanted a change. Pagans and jews were alienated and even the provincial governor arrest. Us was disappointed by the choice of cyril as bishop cyril remained however and so did. The violence alexandria had a reputation as a rough and rowdy city dominated by gang violence. There were even gangs of thuggish christian monks who were always ready to brawl. The office had often exploited divisions to cultivate political and ecclesiastical allies the australis sewed the wind but cyril reap the whirlwind. The first years of cereals episcopate were marred by street fights and riots which he could do little to control in four fifteen came the riot that would ever after be invoked as alexandria's shame in march of that year. During the holy season of lent a christian mob hijacked to the carriage of the pagan philosopher. Hypoxia they dragged her into a nearby church where they stripped her naked and tortured her tearing out her eyes and murdering her slowly by cutting her with pot shards when she was dead they mutilated her body and dragged her remains through the streets before.

"Start by satisfying his hunger. And then with what is left you may adorn the altar as well. John preached his provocative sermons. Right there in the church attended by the emperor's courtiers and flatterers. The poor loved him for it but the rich were not happy at all. In fact most of john. Chris systems reign as bishop of constantinople was taken up with one wearying tempt after another to undermine him in the usual subtle byzantine way but the time for subtlety past when john managed to offend the empress. You doxa personally. It was always whispered that you dock. Co was the real power in constantinople. That arkadiusz didn't do a thing without consulting his domineering wife and the statue of eudoxie that was set up right across from the church of holy wisdom was absurdly expensive. According to the historian socrates it was made of silver and it sat on a base of poor furry said socrates at this statue they used to hold public celebrations which john regarded as an insult to the church. Since he had regained his usual boldness of speech he used his time against those. Who did these things now. Although it would have been proper to send a petition to the authorities asking them to discontinue the celebrations. He did not do this but he employed abusive language and ridiculed those who had enjoined such practices. He preached one homily for example against the use of facial cosmetics which was a particular passion of the empress. You doxa took john sermons as personal insults and to be fair. They were pretty insulting. The worst of it was that they were so good. People laughed and quoted the best lines for days afterward so john soon found himself in a web of byzantine politics from which there was no escape and sad to say there was no shortage of prominent church leaders who are willing to in his downfall. The patriarch of alexandria. The office seized the opportunity to gain prestige for his own city church. He also took the occasion to settle scores with monks who had fled his authority and sought refuge with john. In constantinople theophilus recruited a powerful ally in the renowned epifania of Who was by then very old and somewhat easily confused. The office played on. Epa fania says hatred of the doctrine of origin and convinced him that chris system was nothing but an origin. Est in shepherd's clothing. The emperor summoned ascended presided over by theophilus to make an examination of christim's deeds and opinions but john refused to attend an in absentia. He was deposed and exiled in the wake of the banishment. Some strange occurrences took place at the palace and the empress interpreted them as divine punishments so she recalled john to the capital and he returned in triumph welcomed by great crowds people but it was not long before he offended the empress again and his enemies again were ready to exploit her.

And we want to get some traction on and you know there. There's like, you know we talk about there's no substitute for winning. I mean, like you got to find a way to get a W and even losing in the three on three and just like that's not going to cut the monster. There's no substitute for winning. We had to find a way. To get away and I win. I like and I won't say a couple of things about about our group like we got a young fan group, and that's been well documented. We've talked about it. I've talked about it and it is what it is. But I mean, this young thin group has had. We've played 11 games. Nine of those 11 have been on the road like I don't care even for for older, seasoned teams if you're playing If you're playing nine of 11, that's a tough goal. Everybody's better at home, and so like we've we've had. You know, a monument is challenge. We've honored all of our road commitments to our conference. Uh, to the to our conference affiliates. Theophilus haven't honored their commitments to us. And as a result, we've had the plane inordinate amount of games on the road. Um, uh, I thank our administration for supporting us. It's been it's been tough, and now I want to get into into this game a little bit. And you talk about a young team that hasn't had a lot of success when Los Wise How? How? How many teams that you know, we're all in nine and one could be up to the one and within a minute you're down 3 to 2 with 10 minutes left like how many? How many teams are in our situation would fold up. Fold the tent. How would they fold right up and our kids didn't they didn't fold up. They battled back.

If you were, if you were betting the over under in the you know, just on on athletes, you wouldn't have given us much a chance of a chance, and that And in that in that three on three, but a couple things, Uh Joe Doyle coaches that three on three unit and, uh, they they don't They don't break down like we're pretty organized. Especially defense. Defensively, man on man and all that. And then when we needed them tonight, who? Who is our best player? I like showing and not even any even close. I mean, like, you know, Shelley was a little silly. That's why I told the boys in the locker room right now and No, we we needed. We needed to have that because you know the teams like that are going to get there. Gonna manufacture some offensive When they do, you're going to need a big safe and and we got that from Alex. But no, I feel I'm so happy for the boys. Like I said, it's been a tough It's been a tough road a hole. I mean, nine of 11 games on the road. We've had two home games, nine road games. We come from behind We give up a lead. We go down 3 to 2. We come back, We tie it. We went in dramatic fashion. Willie Rhyme. How about Willie? Look like Cam Neely in those you that aren't old enough to know Cam need nearly Google him and big power forward that once played for the Boston Bruins legend out here.

They didn't What did he make this A letter? Yeah, Yeah, yeah, yeah. No, no exciting, exciting game. It's too bad that there was more fans. There wasn't fans here to watch it.

That a relationship with a loved one doesn't end When they die mean I think that's something that's been really powerful for me to think about with regard to Theophilus Martos. Yes, exactly. And That is what offers healing is that it allows us to remain in relationship with are dead, and I often say that allows us to continue to commune with are dead. Because through the offender, it's like a bridge between our the living and the dead. And That The guy said, the healing that happens as we crossed that bridge or as the dead cross that bridge that's ongoing. Itjust doesn't last. You know the few days that we call the D A S Martos.

I, um I, um am annoyed by the fact that how white have AH, Taken over the day of the dead, especially in the mission area. They've named it everything I remember one year when I used to go. I haven't been in about 15 years. They had a theme The death of the mission. The death of rent Control by BLA bla all those things they're relevant. However, the day Of the dead is that's not it. They shouldn't use other people's culture to put over there. Political views, and I went to Oaxaca to witness it and the people they have a party. They go the graveyard. They bring food they're watching. You know, washed the tombstones and ah all that before I go. I want to give a shout out to my late grandfather, Reverend William Rucker of Kentucky. He was spiritually warrior. Well, thanks for telling us about him. And and thanks for showing that perspective, and I thought to get your reaction to it.

But we have to keep the spiritual essence of it. And it's also you know, in terms of a time to raise other political issues, it can be used that way.

"He became incapacitated. We don't Wow. Think of now. First off background 1984. I was a senior in high school. I remember seniors that turned 18 the drinking age was a team back then. Rob. That was gold. Right? Very team the whole year. My birth his 1st. June third, I was one of the late ones. But most seniors that are gonna have a birthday in September October they're going to live with their mom and dad threw that senior year of high school. You just assume Mom and Dad could make those decisions unless their power of attorney they cannot. Legally that's right. And again. It's incapacity planning. I mean, what are the odds that a particular 18 year old will become incapacitated? Pretty low, But is it zero No, it's not zero and as a result of it not being zero. The only way to ensure against that is to create powers of attorney which is a very simple, very straightforward process that I offer to all of my clients when they have Children who and it's not a solo Children or 18 1920 21 at any age, because if you're 22 year old were a senior in college and in that exact same situation. You still don't have authority as parents to be able to make that decision so again, even if you miss the boat, so to speak on when your Children turned 18 or your grandchildren turned 18. You can still set those powers of attorney up to ensure that you and your spouse have the ability to make those decisions as parents ought to be able to dio and the only way we can ensure that again is by creating those powers of attorney It's state planning, obviously, depending on your age, Rob your state playing planning needs air going very so that 18 year old You're right the day you turn 18 You really need to have a plan, right? But let's see. You've let it go. And now you're 36 years old. It's never too late. In fact, I'm sure your advice is going to be yesterday. Get it done now, Right. I always tell people the best time to do a state. Plenty is yesterday. The second best time is today. So absolutely that it's not painful. Speaking from experience it it was not a big deal. We did a trust, a revokable living trust. My wife and I, and when it's done, it's done The peace of mind. You can't I can't put it into words. And I appreciate that and again for people. It's always a matter of figure out. What are the needs in your lives. How can you stay planted? Those needs an 18 year old does not typically have much by way of assets. Sometimes they do. Sometimes there's inherited. Well, sometimes you have somebody who starts to start up company and 18 is incredibly successful. But as a general rule most 18 year olds the needs they have for their state plan is Theophilus to nominate somebody again, as you mentioned, most likely a mother and father. Who can make health care and financial decisions for them if they become incapacity. How long with that power of attorney form Take to sign if I had the so I'll just walk you through a theoretical one. Let's just say that I had a client come in with their 18 year old son or daughter, and by the way, I do have that I probably have about 30 dates in my calendar as to when clients Children turn 18 that way. It's a reminder for me to call them to say, Hey, let's spring junior into Make sure here she signs the's park attorney documents. So the information that I need to collect from the clients in order to draft the document might take me five minutes to collect. I draft the documents. I bring him in for a signing. Signing takes place in 10 minutes. They're total time. Investment is probably less than 15 minutes, and the cost is minimal. And I'm guessing minimal couple $100, depending upon how you know whether we want financial and health care whether we have multiple Children, But you'd be looking at about 202 $150 someone that it's almost the same as would you Okay? Winnie car insurance and every vehicle we own. It could be a tilapia. $100,000 Mercedes we need. We need car insurance. Most of us not all, but most was need and do have life insurance. Most of us have homeowner's policy where there's all kinds of insurance out there, right. We get those policies. Why do we put estate planning on the back burner? I love the parallel to insurance. Okay. To me. It's one of those things that I've talked about on this show before. I've talked about it. A lot of my public speaking engagements. For whatever reason, Paul people in the public understand insurance a lot better than this understand estate planning So part of my job with through this show through the other speaking engagements that I have is to draw those parallels because you're exactly right. But I will draw one distinction for you and for the audience here, life insurance. OK people. A lot of younger people will obtain life insurance, either after get married or certainly if they have their first child. Why, Because they want to have the certainty of knowing that if they pass away prematurely, there's at least a sum. Money that is available to pay for their child's needs during their life or to help the surviving spouse be able to get back on his or her feet. That part is pretty intuitive. Okay, why would a state planning be any different Because if you have that young couple who has that minor Children, the estate plan is the only and I'll repeat and emphasize the on ly way to determine guardianship of those Children. So what's more important, having a pool of money available for the Children or being able to nominate whom you want to serve as the guardians.

A brilliant composer poet and him Niagara for her work is still performed regularly in the Orthodox Church, which includes twenty three of her hymns in its liturgy. Please welcome casio of Constantinople. Casio was born around the year eighty, five and Constantinople to a wealthy family of some influence. We know little about her early life. What we do know is that she was considered an exceptionally beautiful and brilliant young woman? Casio was first recorded by Byzantine historians as taking part in what was known as the bride show. This was an event at which Byzantine emperors a royalty would choose a wife from amongst the most eligible women in the empire giving the winning participant Golden Apple as a token of victory. The bride show that Casio attended thrown for the young soon to be emperor theophilus who was immediately captivated by Casio when Theophilus approached Cassiopeia, he stated that through a woman came forth the baser things to which casio quickly replied and through a woman came forth the better things. The office was so taken aback by Cassius biting rebuke that he rejected her in favor of another woman the Adora after losing her chance to become empress of Byzantium Cassius founded an Abbey Eight, forty three right outside of Constantinople and served as its first abbess. Many historians have suggested the Cassius move into monastic life was a response to her rejection from the office. But some modern scholars have revisited that assumption. And now believe that it was likely a reflection of the intense religious fervor of the day combined with Cassius desire to have access to the books and centers of learning that were part and parcel of Byzantine religious. Life. Over the subsequent two decades living at the monastery Cassius spent significant writing spiritual poetry and him no music to accompany her poems. Though it's unclear where she learned musical composition, she wrote nearly two hundred and fifty hymns over her lifetime. Fifty of those, him still survive twenty three of which continue to be included even today in the liturgy of the Orthodox Church? Casio also wrote nearly eight hundred epigrams, many of which are examples of nomex verse. Cassius, most famous him WHO's the him? CASSIA is traditionally chanted on holy Wednesday in Orthodox churches around the world. It's considered one of the hardest Byzantine chance to perform because it requires an incredibly wide vocal range.

The story goes that Casio chose to keep it in his honor and it remains in the him today. While Theophilus may have maintained affection for Cassiopeia that didn't stop him from persecuting her.

"Are you excited about the word of God today. I believe you I believe you. Let's go to acts chapter one. We are continuing this discussion on kingdom clout kingdom influence influence knowing that God has a purpose and a plan. I mean we get on the same page as him. Amazing things happen and I want to share with you today from from a very pivotal scripture in acts chapter one where we get to see. Jesus Christ transferred the power that he demonstrated physically the on the earth to his apostles for the mission of the Gospel. And this is how it all started people say how did Elevation Church start. Acts Chapter. One gives the back story now. We're going way back way before we went to golden corral and shelby and decided to move to Charlotte but this is how really started acts chapter one verse one in in my former book theophilus. I wrote baby name available. Theophilus wrote about all that Jesus began to do into teach Until the day he was taken up to Heaven after giving instructions through the Holy Spirit to the apostles he had chosen. Can I point out two words to you from that verse. This is not my key verse but I would like to point out the word began and I would like to point out the word chosen. They're they're both in verse one. If you could put that on the screen one more time in verse one it says began in verse. Two it says chosen and a like the word began because we tend to think that when Jesus left the Earth has ministry stopped. Not so luke. Who wrote a Gospel Account that bears? His name said that when Jesus was on on the earth that was only the beginning that his greatest ministry started after he left and so a lot of times in our life we think we are are coming to an end but it is really beginning a lot of times. We believe the lie that will you know. I'm not in my thirties anymore. So I guess I just can't no it's not an end. It's a beginning and a lot of times if we go through a traumatic life event whether our kids leave the house which I don't know if best dramatic that could be celebratory in some cases kidding but but you know even if this something horrible that happens a lot of times what we see is an end is the beginning winning and so we'll understand that more fully. I just wanted to point it out to you that you might be standing at what you were calling an ending. That is really a new beginning and that would depend on your a perspective. y'All slowdown because I got to preach nine verses. And that's just one of them. The second word is chosen and what strikes likes me about that word. I really love that word. It's our word for the year how our church picked words to focus on twenty twenty holly and I pick the word chosen and and it's not just the word itself which I love but it is. The timing at which this word is used that encourages me. Because you have to remember this is after all of the disciples save. John have left Jesus as he died on the Cross and kind of let him down in his moment of me. And so it doesn't just say they were chosen at the beginning of his ministry. But even after he saw all them stumble and saw them falter and solve them hesitate and even after they made the mistake of believing what there I saw rather than what their spirits new even after that they were still chosen. And I need you to look right in the pupils of the person next to you and Stare Stare Adam and say you're still chosen. You didn't do it. You mumbled it. You gotta say it with some force now when the devil talks to you he talks to you. You know with some force but but come on out loud the devil and say you're.

When i lost my virginity 'cause like i obviously thought it was like way up here and he was good but it was ah yeah and you know obviously gets better with experience but i think in this situation it was infatuation. He got it on and then now. Maybe it sounds like you know she's planning all of these things. Maybe she's trying to build up this type of relationship and he's just booty caught. I lasted a little too long. You know what else could could've added to it the fact that sometimes when people worked together. There's like an increased like ooh. This is something that's forbid. I mean depending on your word culture. This is forbidden or they don't no no that we're having sex but you know we never show up together but i took him when i'm ready to go like that type of thing so it's kind of like i think that that may have added to it and especially now that shuttleworth together moore's kinda like well. Did he ever say it was good. <hes> did he ever say. It was good thought. I'm just asking buddy he said in the beginning. He said he's not anymore so i so i wonder what's he. I wonder what happened like. Does she. No longer do things that she you did when you first met and we don't know why you go to escalate in the sudden she got the megan how either i don't but i would have never went there. Well suppose i'm guessing i think stuff stuff anyway conversation with yeah now. What did you say it's hard to see leading. The people people put probably like yeah. You know everybody bad real good bad breath..

"Radio DOT ORG for more resources into listen to archive programming are hosting teacher Chris Cacus here Chris tells what's on the program today yes D- We've got a great show lined up so I we're GonNa Continue Our series on the Gospel. Speak to everyone we've already looked at Matthew and mark and this week we're going to look at Luke and who his audience was. It's really important to know the audience of the Gospel Writers and then second check in we're going to be unpacking Simcock Torah the last of this Fath- feasts that we've been going through and it's a real great time of celebrating God's word so you'll wanNA stick around for that and then finally apples of gold. We're so glad you chose to join us today. We've got a great show and now the news. The Israeli government has a plan to welcome more than nine thousand Ethiopian Jews to their country within the next five years continuing decades of Ethiopian immigration to Israel emotions ran high up in Green Airport as the I sixty four Ethiopians were welcomed by friends and family who waited years to hold their loved ones Jewish Agency chairman the Thanh Scharansky told the imigrants everything is now in your hands after twenty five hundred years of prayers you can expect expect a big future. Israel like America is a country of immigrants. It's a melting pot. It's an extremely diverse culture with people that come from many different nations languages and backgrounds the Ethiopian population plays a major role adding to the colorful tapestry that make up the people of Israel and this is why Sharansky said to the new citizens of Israel. You can expect great things that's Great Chris. One of my favorite things about being in the land especially in Jerusalem is seeing the diversity of cultures. There's that make up the city of Jerusalem quickly before we get to the message. I'd like to remind you that we're featuring a resource by our former executive director Victor Books Bosnian the Gospel in the feasts of Israel. We'll tell you more about that book later and and today we're GonNa Continue Our series on the Gospels and our series is called the gospels speak to everyone. The beauty of the gospel of the Lord Jesus is that it transcends time culture race nationality and even the socio economic divide. The message of the Gospel is for everybody but I also believe that God ordered the Gospels in such a way that they do speak to everyone the gospels are letters that were written for specific people and for specific audience and I've been using this analogy that the four Gospels Matthew Mark Luke John are like the four sides of a skyscraper and I was just in downtown Philadelphia a few days ago with my family and I saw the new comcast skyscraper that they're building and my kids were with me and as we stood at the base of that building I told my daughter to look up and she stared she said how did they do that and she was asking me data how in the world that they build this building so high and see each side of the skyscraper is different in presents a different angle of the building and yet no matter which side of the building we were looking at your still looking at that same building in like olive my daughter sometimes it's almost impossible to stare without trying to rack your mind on how they they are building this an engineer this amazing thing and you know the gospels they work in the same way to fully describe the nature of Jesus Christ in only one Gospel doesn't do Justice Nice to the majesty of who he is and yet God gives us four gospels to help us see different perspectives of WHO Christ is. Maybe it's different because of who the Gospel was written in four or maybe it's different because of the message the Gospel Writers are trying to convey about Jesus <hes> or his followers to the readers as we were unpacking matthew and mark we talked about how Matthew was written for Jewish believers believers in Jesus to communicate the story of Jesus the Jewish Messiah so that as Matthew is communicating this message to a Jewish audience they can be confident to share their faith with with their Jewish friends and second matthew was also written to encourage Jewish believers who were facing persecution from the Jewish legalist of Jesus's Day and remember those Jewish legalists of Jesus. This is day. They didn't just disappear they continued to persecute the early church and so last week we looked at the gospel of mark which was written for a Roman audience. It was written in a way to convince Romans that Jesus this is the Lord and Savior of the world and that being a disciple of Jesus could come at a cost you know much of the gospel of mark is focused on the concept of discipleship and how a true disciple of Jesus should live as he lived a sacrificial life now this week we're gonNA move to the Third Gospel the last of set of gospels at are called the Synoptic Gospels The Gospel of Luke Luke background is GonNa play a major role in who he chooses to write. His Gospel to see Matthew Mark John. These are all Jewish believers in Jesus but see luke is a little different. He's a gentile we know that Luke was a gentile because in Paul's letters to the Colossians in clashes chapter four ten to fourteen Paul Lists Luke as a non-jewish follower of Jesus who supports his ministry Luke probably came from Antioch of Syria and even though he was a gentile he probably had some significant contact with Judaism before he believed in Jesus. You know scholars believe Luke was a god fearing gentile which means as a non Jew he believed in the God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob Much like Cornelius in the book of Acts Scholars believe this because Luke shows a real sense of understanding of the Jewish culture and customs of his time even though he wasn't Jewish so being gentile an understanding adding Judaism Luke stands an interesting place as a gospel writer. Luke's Gospel seeks to tell a full and complete story of Jesus Christ here it is everybody to the entire gentile world old matthew very focused on the Jewish culture. <hes> mark very focused on speaking to Romans but luke stands in an interesting place with an understanding of Judaism in an understanding of what it means to be a gentile. He's he seeks to share the message of the Jewish Messiah to a gentile world and you can really see this all throughout his Gospel and remember the gospel of Luke is only part one of a series Luke also wrote the book of acts which is the history of the Early Church and in the book of acts you can see luke's desire to communicate the message of Jesus Christ to the entire gentile world and he shares the stories of Paul's missionary journeys. Paul eventually makes his way. I love this as as Lucas unpacking Paul story where to the center of the Gentile World Rome to speak to the leader of the gentile world the Emperor of Rome when Luke writes his Gospel. He's actually writing this so fascinating. He's actually writing to just one particular man. Even though he's communicating this message to the entire gentile world he's actually just writing to one man which is very unique in the four gospels that that Luke just rights rights to one man in Luke. Luke explains that he's writing this detailed account of the life of Christ for Theophilus and Theophilus was probably another god-fearing gentile like Luke who believed that Jesus was the Messiah but this is what's interesting. Luke was writing to Theophilus because Theophilus probably didn't feel welcomed within the church remember the early church was predominantly Jewish and there were there was definitely attention within the early church. Remember much of Paul's letters are devoted to the unity of the Church that we're one in Christ why because there was racial tension between Jews in gentiles during the days of Luke and Paul The Gospel Luke is speaking to Gentile Christians like the off Louis who are working through issues of being included in the story of God's redemptive plan and you can really see this come across in Luke's genealogy of Jesus this Luke's genealogy of Jesus stands apart from Matthews Luke retraces the family line of Jesus and Luke does something much different Luke traces Jesus all the way back to Adam the first man to show that Jesus's life and death and resurrection were meant for Everyone Ju- Gentile Matthew he stops at Abraham of course the figurehead of the Jewish people Abraham Isaac his son and Jacob but luke takes us all the way back to Adam and what's amazing about Luke's Gospel is that even though it was written to only one man theophilus the message of Luke's Gospel relates plates the story of Jesus to the contemporary world and culture of his day and continues even today to be a source of understanding and revelation about Jesus Luke wanted to show the gentile world that God has torn down that dividing wall between Jews and gentiles all mankind can come to the father through faith in Jesus his son it could only be done because of the grace of God. I hope you're beginning to see see the beauty on how God arranged the Gospels so that they communicate a message specifically to everybody Ju- Roman Gentile. It's even speaking to us. This is the amazing using thing it transcends time. It's even speaking to us in this very moment. God used Luke to stand between the great divide the great divide that was between the Jewish community and the gentile community luke the god-fearing fearing gentiles who placed his faith in Jesus understood some of the complex issues of what it meant to be a gentile believer in Jesus during his day and he wanted to encourage theophilus and any other gentile believers who felt out of place that they were welcomed in the story of God's redemptive plan because of what Jesus has done and I wanna end with this quote from Luke Five thirty through thirty two just listen to what Jesus says but the Pharisees he's and their experts in the law complained to his disciple saying why do you eat and drink with tax. Collectors and centers and Jesus answered them. Those who are well don't need Ada physician but those who are sick. Do I have come not to call the righteous but the sinners to Repentance D._C.. WHAT LUKE DID LUKE welcomes everybody? Everybody all are welcome to the table of fellowship in the name of Jesus why because we are all sinners who have heard the call of Jesus to turn to him.
