  • DUNCAN/Perplexed. Frightened. Incredulous. Marveling!
    Wednesday, October 18, 2017 6:00 PM
    Turn in your Bible to Luke 24:1-12. This passage is about the battle of faith. Are we going to trust God's Word, or are we going to succumb to unbelief? Jesus Himself does not appear to anyone in the story that Luke has recorded here. This is significant because Luke is pointing our attention to something else that is faith producing, and that is the Word of God, the words of Christ.

    Turn in your Bible to Luke 23:39-43. Last week we looked at two major themes of this passage. We saw in His conversation with the criminal that Jesus is continuing to save, to draw people to Himself, even while He is on the cross. Then we looked at the criminal’s incredible conversion. This week I want you to see a third thing from this passage. You not only see Jesus working
  • DUNCAN/Remember Me: Part 1
    Wednesday, September 20, 2017 6:00 PM
    Turn in your Bible to Luke 23:39-43. In the last passage that we read in Luke, Jesus prayed, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” In this passage, Jesus forgives a criminal and assures him of everlasting life. Even on the cross, Jesus is ministering His saving work. Even as He dies for the sins of the world, He is concerned about the heart of a convicted criminal who is dying the same awful death that He is dying. And in this wonderful exchange, this unique exchange recorded for us only by Luke, I want us to see three things. We will look at two of them this week, and we’ll look at the last one next week.
  • DUNCAN/Are You the King of the Jews?
    Wednesday, August 23, 2017 6:00 PM
    Turn to Luke 23:1-5. Remember that Jesus is before the Sanhedrin, the council of the elders. The Sanhedrin did not have the right of the death penalty. If the death penalty was going to be administered to Jesus, they would have to go to Pilate, the Roman authority. As you read there are three things that I want you to be on the lookout for.
  • DUNCAN/‘I Am Among You As the One Who Serves’
    Wednesday, July 12, 2017 6:00 PM
    Turn to Luke 22:24-27 as we continue looking at the events of the last night before Jesus’ crucifixion. In this passage we find the disciples arguing about who is the greatest, and Jesus rebukes them for it. This is a pretty humiliating story about the disciples, but Luke doesn’t tell it to shame them. He tells it to teach us a lesson. You see, Jesus is getting at one main thing in his rebuke: our attitude, our ambition. He’s exhorting us to a life of other-centered, Gospel-motivated service. As we look at what Jesus says, I want you to see four ways Luke gets this point across: the blindness of the disciples, the blindness of the world, the nature of the kingdom, and the motivation for our service.
