Bible Study Notes on Luke 20 – 20180820

Luke 20:1  "...on one of those days..." One of the days He went to the temple and taught.  Just after He had the triumphal entry.  I would guess Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday. 1  "...chief priests and the scribes, together with the elders..." Concerted effort.  He was really getting under their skin with this last batch …

Bible Study Notes on Luke 19:28-48 -20180816

Luke 19:28-40  Story of the Triumphal Entry.  Nothing new is speaking at the moment.  Not sure if it's that God isn't saying anything or that my mood is bad for listening.  Perhaps next time. 40  "...if these should keep silent, the stones would immediately cry out" Jesus had spent the last three and a half …

Bible Study Notes on Luke 19:1-27 – 20180815

Luke 19:1-2  "...passed through Jericho...a man named Zacchaeus..." So Zacchaeus either lived in Jericho or in the area between Jericho and Jerusalem.  It says Jesus passed through.  Could go either way.  Verse 11 will mention Him being near Jerusalem, so perhaps they were outside Jericho.  But we get the general area. 3  "...he sought to …

Bible Study Notes on Luke 18:24-43 – 20180813

Luke 18:27  "...The things which are impossible with men are possible with God" Jesus is speaking here specifically regarding salvation.  Man cannot save himself, but God can provide a way for him and has.  Yet, I think we can use the phrase for any situation.  Nothing is impossible for God.  As Job said, no purpose …

Bible Study Notes on Luke 18:9-23 – 20180810

Luke 18:9  "...who trusted in themselves that they were righteous..." What they did.  Who they were.  Followed the law.  Were children of Abraham.  All that led to was pride. 11  "...extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this tax collector" I think Jesus was throwing in some irony here.  These are the sins He normally called …

Bible Study Notes on Luke 18:1-8 – 20180808

Luke 18:1  "...men always ought to pray and not lose heart" Not easy to do.  Praying is easy most of the time, but not losing heart is difficult when the answer is delayed. 2  "...in a certain city..." Part of the story.  Like once upon a time.  Could have some basis in actual occurrence, but …

Bible Study Notes on Luke 17:11-37 – 20180806

Luke 17:11  "...He passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee" Jesus didn't follow the practice of avoiding Samaria as some Jews did in order to get to Jerusalem. 14  "...so it was that as they went, they were cleansed" Act of faith.  They did what Jesus told them to do.  Still had leprosy as …
