Mirror, Mirror on the Wall
Session 8.05 Starter
The text is Luke 4:21-30, the second half of the story we discussed last week. In today’s passage, Jesus has come home to preach. These people knew Jesus…they watched him grow up. But…it seems Jesus knew them even better. What sort of mirror did Jesus hold up to them… and to us?
Scripture: Luke 4:21-30
Then he began to say to them, “Today this scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing.” All spoke well of him and were amazed at the gracious words that came from his mouth. They said, “Is not this Joseph’s son?” He said to them, “Doubtless you will quote to me this proverb, ‘Doctor, cure yourself!’ And you will say, ‘Do here also in your hometown the things that we have heard you did at Capernaum.’”
