As Jesus “sets his face toward Jerusalem” (i.e., resolves to force a confrontation with the religious authorities), the conflict that will lead to his crucifixion begins to take shape.
It starts with a rejection of Jesus as he seeks to enter Samaria (located between the regions Galilee and Judea) and continues with Jesus’s rejection of some would-be followers.
In this episode regular J@2AM preacher, Rev. Mike Regele examines this very complex sequence (Luke 9:51-62), and put on a master class in exegesis (the scholarly work of interpreting a passage) and why such work is essential to our proper understanding of the biblical story!
