On the Road With Jesus

Traveling With the Teacher
Oct. 6, 2019 – Nov. 24, 2019

Wherever Jesus went, crowds of people followed him. Some were skeptics; some were zealots; some were merely curious. Regardless of where you are on that spectrum, we invite you to tag along for a while as we imagine ourselves to be traveling disciples.

Message line-up:

Increase Our Faith
Pastor Scott Austin
Listen
Read transcript

In this introductory sermon, we begin to think about what it means to “travel with the Teacher”, especially when we find his lessons difficult to understand or accept.

Luke 17:5–10
10/13
The Ten Lepers
Pastor Scott Austin
Listen

On his way to Jerusalem, Jesus healed ten men at once. Only one showed gratitude. But the story has many other interesting aspects, leaving us with lots to ponder as we sort out its meaning for today.

Luke 17:11–19
10/20
The Widow and the Judge
Pastor Scott Austin

Jesus told his disciples a parable about a widow who petitioned a judge for justice against an opponent. As we try to apply this teaching to our time, we ask ourselves who each of these characters represents, and which one we most resemble.

Luke 18:1–8
10/27
Competitive Prayer
Pastor Scott Austin
Listen
Read transcript

Jesus told a story of two men who went up to pray. One was self-righteous, the other deeply humble. Which character we see ourselves in reveals a lot about our own spiritual state.

Luke 18:9–14
11/3
Dinner With a Tax Collector
Pastor Scott Austin
Listen

A famous "Sunday School" story about a man who received forgiveness: it seems simple enough. But we had better not skip over the reconciling work he did!

Luke 6:20–31
11/10
In the Resurrection
Rose Percy, Bethel Church of the Nazarene
Listen

When we see death and destruction all around us, how can we begin to find hope without the resurrection? And what do people of resurrection have to offer a dying world?

Luke 20:27–38
11/17
An Ominous Prediction
Pastor Scott Austin

In response to a seemingly harmless observation about the beauty of the temple, Jesus warns that it is all temporary, and that there are many trials coming for those who proclaim his name.

Luke 21:5–19
11/24
The Crucified King
Pastor Scott Austin

Christ the King Sunday, the last day of the liturgical year, typically focuses on Christ’s dominion over all creatures. This year, the lectionary Gospel reading gives us a dramatically unexpected picture of Christ’s reign: the story of his crucifixion.

Luke 23:33–43
