Luke 3 b- Jesus' genealogy

23:03:00 Karen Li 0 Comments


Today's bible study was on Luke 3b. 

- About 30 years old, jesus began his public ministry because in Moses time, Lev served from 30-50. 
- It was only thought Joseph was Jesus' father.  Because Jesus did not have a biological father (Birth by virgin Mary).
- Differences between Matthew and Luke because Matthew only listed Kings (written for Jews) and Luke more complete (listing those who may not be royal).
- Matthew starts from Abraham to David to Jesus. 
- Luke starts from Jesus to David, to Abraham, to Adam to God. Illustrating that Jesus is a savior for man. 
- Adam was the first man to sin, and since we are all his descendants, we too are cursed and have the sin of origin. We can not directly be connected to God anymore because of this. 
- We also have our own personal sins. For example, David, even though he was known as a man after God's own heart, he committed a sin by coverting his neighbour's wife. And he was punished for this. He repented and God forgave him. We too have many sins, that makes us even further from God. 
- When Jesus came, he fulfilled the old promise and created a new promise. So WHAT? Through Jesus we can be united once again with God. Because we are children of God. 

1) Admit that you are a sinner, because you are a descendant of Adam and because you have committed your own sins
2) And we can not save ourselves. 
3) Jesus came, as God, to sacrifice his own life, so that we can be free of this sin. His precious blood washed away both the sin of origin and the sin we committed- once and for all.
4) All we have to do is to believe that he died for our sins and choose to follow him as our saviour from now on. And we can be guaranteed to have eternal life. 

What does it mean to follow Jesus? This is a point of discussion to be covered at another time. But Have you taken the first few steps? Are you ready to commit your life?
