What do your enemies say about you?

Unity within disunity

Season 3, episode 72
30 min / Published

Episode 72 - Stephanie beckons us to continue our way through the gospel of Luke by experiencing alongside Jesus what it feels like to be attacked by enemies. With His usual meekness and boldness, He addresses their needs and ignores the facades they seem to put up to trap Him. What does this tell us about how we are called to behave?

Have you noticed how people of different opinions can suddenly unite against a common foe? We see it happen today when 4 distinct people groups, who mutually hate and despise each other, come together in unity against their foe - Jesus Christ, who claims to be Messiah. Pharisees, Sadducees, Herodians and Scribes unite to attack Him. We can still see such strategies in our world today. So, when you behold people who seem to be divided on every issue, suddenly unite together against Christ--you know something is up. Jesus role-models for us what a good response is. And it has to do with love--yes, love.

We are in Luke 20-22 today, and we hope to tie in these seemingly unrelated passages to show the seamlessness of Jesus' message and love--yes, even for His enemies.
