Following Jesus, part 1. Luke 9:18-27

The “Turning Point” of the narrative always matters– especially in the Gospel of Luke, where Jesus’ focus turns from announcing the Kingdom of God to calling disciples to follow him all the way to Jerusalem and the cross. Following Jesus in this way turns out to be a pathway of revelation, of training, and of preparation for usefulness in the Kingdom. Stuart Holman leads this series of Devotionals on Following Jesus, all the way.

This series of devotionals asks, ‘What exactly had God said to give his people such expectation, such hope, for life back in the land after the exile?’ What is it (or, Who?) that might fulfil Israel’s Hope?
