Luke sermons (1980)

| | Comments (0)

The first time through the gospel of Luke, the elders seem to have wanted to cover material across the book at a rate of about one sermon for every two chapters. Some of the sermons covered most of the two chapters, and some selected a smaller portion within the two-chapter range. According to the introduction to the fifth sermon by Jeremy Jackson, one of the criteria for selection was to focus on passages that cover material not covered in other gospel sermons before this point (i.e. from the 1978 Mark series, the 1979 John series, and various topical sermons before this point). Al Gurley explained in the introduction to the twelfth sermon why he broke from this two-chapter-per-sermon pattern at the last minute and preached a Palm Sunday sermon, putting off chapters 23-24 until the Easter sermon by Doug Weeks. There was no introduction/preaching schedule for this unit on Luke.
