Beginnings: Preparation for Ministry

April 10, 2011 Speaker: Mark Petersburg Series: Studies in Luke

Topic: The Gospels

Luke relates three stories in his Gospel account that are preparatory and lay the foundation for Jesus’ earthly life and ministry – his baptism, the temptation and his visit to Nazareth, his hometown.  There are significant and relevant applications to our lives and ministry drawn as parallels from the experiences of Jesus.  Come explore in this message purposes for God’s giving of the Spirit, for seeing in Jesus’ experience of temptation a model for how we are to respond to temptation, and the defining characteristics of our ministry in line with that of the Messiah and his.
