The Message of Jesus

What you get all the way through the first four chapters of Luke is that there’s a Savior coming, but he’s going to bring a salvation infinitely wider and deeper, more magnificent, and more multidimensional than anything anybody expected. Starting here in chapter 5, we have Luke spelling out what that is. These three incidents will show us how all-comprehensive and how multidimensional and full the salvation of Jesus is.

In the first incident we see Jesus’ salvation transforms our relationship to ourselves. In the second incident it shows us Jesus’ salvation transforms our relationships with others. Lastly, the third incident shows Jesus’ salvation transforms our relationship with God. It completely transforms us psychologically, sociologically, spiritually.
