Who is This?

March 4, 2018 Speaker: John Bell Series: Luke

Passage: Luke 8:22–8:39

Big Picture: Jesus’ power is a manifestation of the Holy Spirit of God, thus fulfilling messianic prophesy that the Lord’s Anointed would minister in the power of God’s Spirit. 

Point # 1:  Jesus is the divine Anointed One who pushes back the kingdom of darkness by rebuking a storm whipped up by evil forces to impede his ministry to gentiles.

  • Note the fear of the disciples – both before and after the storm.

Point # 2: In the midst of total impurity, Jesus, the divine Anointed One, pushes back the kingdom of darkness by vanquishing an entire army of demons.

  • Note the fear of the impure spirit before the exorcism
  • Note the fear of the townspeople after the exorcism

Point # 3:  Jesus, the divine Anointed One, pushes back the kingdom of darkness by leaving behind a radically transformed missionary to testify about him.
