As we continue to walk through the Bible in 2016, this week, we are going to cover Luke 19. The first 10 verses deal with a well known figure from the New Testament, mainly, because there is a little song about him. I refer to Zaccheus. Many times, this story is used to emphasize how salvation comes to a person’s life. This is true, but, from the context, there is a bigger message here. In order to understand the bigger picture, I will outline the entire chapter of Luke 19.
- 1-10 – what do you do with what you have?
- 11-27 – the parable of the minas, what will you invest what you have in for the future
- 28 – 44 – The triumphal entry of Christ
- 45 – 48 – Jesus clears the temple, rebuke for those who abused people for profit
