Not a Hometown Hero

Passage:Luke 4:16-30

Preacher: Ben Phillips

Category: Bible Study

Jesus returns to his hometown of Nazareth, shortly after beginning his public ministry. He makes a spectacular claim while teaching there and the reaction, while positive at first, quickly goes bad. What does this passage in Luke 4 reveal to us about who Jesus really is? Throughout this whole episode of Jesus' life, from his temptation in the wilderness to his teaching in the synagogue, the place and importance of Scripture is central. Jesus' life was formed and guided by Scripture, and we who are now in Christ by grace through faith, are also formed and guided by Scripture.
