Fire from Heaven (and other AC problems)

Passage:Luke 9:51-62

Preacher: Ben Phillips

Category: Messiah

At the end of Luke chapter 9, Jesus begins his final journey to Jerusalem. In this passage there are some rich biblical themes which move us from God's saving actions in the Old Testament to the saving work of Jesus Christ which those previous actions prefigured. Specifically is the mention of the sending of messengers ahead on the way to Jerusalem and the calling down of fire from heaven in 1 Kings 18. We will begin to see some of what the New Covenant brings which is different from the Old Covenant, specifically the work of the Holy Spirit (Galatians 5:13-23).
