Things were ‘normal’ for the people of Israel. And though they knew something better was in store, they lived, in most respects, content with what they had. But then this Jesus guy shows up and makes a way for things to change. This change is not an easy pill to swallow for God’s chosen people. This Jesus is going to make things RADICALLY DIFFERENT!
God’s goal was to bring every nation into one family. One beautiful bride. Luke shows us how Jesus lived his life through his Gospel. He then shows us through the book of Acts that God’s story will be shared with the nations. Luke thinks Paul is the answer to getting the gospel out there. But God has other plans!
