Its No Use

Luke 14:1/7-14

 

Chapters 11-20 record Jeremiah's personal experiences and serve to reveal the doom that is about to fall upon God's covenant people. There is no real structure to this section, just a collection of prophetic observations. The episode of the Potter's House, 18:1-12, describes what Jeremiah learned while watching a potter at work.

Expect Nothing : Get Everything

Expect Nothing : Get Everything

Luke 14:1/7-14

Our passage today focuses on a dinner party and teaches that religious status-seekers will have no part in the kingdom of God. The passage is made up of a healing in verses 1-6, which is covered in the PEWS section of your bulletin, followed by two extended proverbs in verses 7-11 and 12-14. The setting is a dinner provided for a visiting preacher by the local minister. It looks very much like a setup. The sick man is placed before Jesus while the religious crew carefully watch to see if Jesus will break the law and heal on the Sabbath.
