Luke sermons: The distinctives and uniqueness of Christ (1984)

| | Comments (0)

There was no preaching schedule for this series. This series originally started out with the intention of being about perhaps a dozen particular character/personality sketches in the gospel of Luke (explained in the opening comments of the first sermon in the series, by Al Gurley). However, it eventually became a series on the distinctives and uniqueness of Christ. In the third sermon, Jeremy Jackson explained how he came to this different theme and described it as focusing on people's interactions with Jesus that show a separation between his mind and their minds. In the fourth sermon, Al Gurley described it as looking at the kinds of things Jesus did that were very distinctive, unique inputs he's given us that are very challenging and radical. In the sixth sermon, Jeremy Jackson describes it as the ways our Lord makes plain the difference between the mind of God and the mind of man. They also attempted to cover mostly passages not covered in the 1980 series on Luke, which had also tried to cover the entire book in large scope, leaving out much of it in the process.
