Bible Study Notes on Luke 8:40-56 – 20180612

Luke 8:42  "...she was dying..." Matthew's account says Jairus came and said his daughter was already dead, but that he knew Jesus could raise her up.  Makes me think the disciples didn't all hear exactly everything that was happening, but caught the issue was over a daughter.  Since she was dead when they got to …

Bible Study Notes on Luke 8:22-39 – 20180611

Luke 8:22  "...on a certain day..." Marks of how the scriptures were written.  Personal memory may not be precise.  I can never remember exact dates of past experiences myself unless I have something to tie them to.  But the importance lies in what happened. 23  "...He fell asleep..." Jesus was susceptible to the frailties of …

Bible Study Notes on Luke 7:1-23 – 20180604

Luke 7:1  "...when He concluded...He entered Capernaum" Wonder if this is an indication that He was not far outside Capernaum when He gave the sermon on the mount.  Commentaries didn't mention it.  Could be, but doesn't have to be.  Same problem.  Writing a chain of events from different memories. 3  "...he sent elders of the …

Bible Study Notes on Luke 6:27-49 – 20180601

Luke 6:27  "...Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you" Doesn't mean you have to like everything they do or even agree with what they do.  You have to understand what love really is.  Wanting what is best for the person without regard to anything else. 29  "...strikes you on the one cheek, …
