Salvation's Other Side

Luke 3:9-11

Those who think that God will always be benign to everybody do not understand the gospel. Salvation is only necessary because of God's wrath against sin.

Salvation's Contentment

Luke 3:12-14

Salvation does not depend on what we do - it depends on accepting what Jesus Christ has done for us on the cross.

Salvation's Announcement

Luke 3:15-18

If evangelists advertise their own abilities, and get people to submit to them, something is wrong. They are supposed to announce the Lord Jesus Christ and explain how to submit to His grace.

Salvation's Adversary

Luke 3:19-20

John the Baptist, like all true evangelists, called people to repent of their sins before God's Saviour came.


Luke 3:21-22

The start of Jesus' ministry was remarkable.

Family Restored

Luke 3:23-38

Who was Jesus? Luke has already written that the angel Gabriel said He would be 'the Son of the Most High' (Luke 1:32) and 'Son of God' (Luke 1:35).

Appointment with Evil

Luke 4:1-2a

At first sight, this seems rather strange. Why should the ministry of Jesus Christ, the Son of God start with a direct encounter with Satan.

Food for Thought

Luke 4:2b-4

Jesus was fully human. He needed food as much as we do.

Delegated Authority

Luke 4:5-8

Jesus had been led by the Holy Spirit towards an intentional encounter with Satan. Now Satan was allowed to take the lead.

Validating Identity

Luke 4:9-13

Satan's temptations have common themes. So they should be easily recognisable. He loves to induce uncertainty and then propose an evil solution to resolve it.
