What do we see when we see Jesus?
This is the question at the center of my message, “Messiah,” from this past weekend at Eastbrook Church. This was part of our series, “Jesus on the Move,” where we have been looking at the ministry of Jesus in northern Israel in the first half of the Gospel of Luke. Unlike other weeks where we combined several passages together around themes, this message focused on three verses in Luke 9:18-21.
Also, join in with the weekday reading plan for this series here.
