Easter 2014 - Luke 23April 13, 2014 Peter Mead
As Luke tells the story of the crucifixion he focuses our attention on the two criminals crucified next to Jesus. In typical Luke style we are brought face to face with two people to convict us of our own response to Jesus. Will we go with the flow of our culture and treat Jesus as a Messiah if he proves himself by our standards (i.e. meet my needs!), or are we so touched by his death on the cross that we will forsake any need if we can be with him?
