Study & Share Sermon Blog

This is Pastor Jared's weekly sermon info and his weekly Study and Share devotional Bible study. Unless otherwise noted all sermons and studies are copyright Jared Stillions 2020-2023. The devotional Bible studies may be reproduced & shared for personal, non-sale use, provided this copyright notice is included. The studies are formatted two to a page to make sharing it easier. Weekly posts go live at 9:00 AM on Sundays. 

You can find his sermon podcast on the sermon-cast page. Check back each Sunday for new content. The podcast will soon be listed with major services. 
Why not put them on the same page? Due to limitations of our website builder.

By the way, here's the Lutheran Confessions, The Book of Concord, online and in the public domain. These writings, including Luther's Small & Large Catechisms are frequently referenced in these devotional studies. The Confessions are the historic doctrinal standard of the Lutheran Church and a faithful exposition of the Bible. You could say they are squared, leveled, and plumb by and to the Bible itself.

Running with Arms Open
Luke 15:1-3, 11-32  
When our dreams die & plan fail, all we can do is survive; God celebrates & honors our return

...#1. Compare & contrast this parable with the two preceding (Lost Sheep vv4-7, Lost Coin vv8-10); what similarities do you find? What is the occasion for Jesus’ teaching? What does Joshua 5:9-12 add? See Luke 8:28-36 43b-45, 13:22, 33, 14:1, 15:1-2, 17:11

No Pleasure in Your Destruction
Luke 13:1-9  
God isn’t out to get us; well, maybe to get us to turn around

...#3. Jesus point in vv3, 5 is that without repentance, all will perish (cf. John 3:13-17); he’s not commenting on the particular guilt of the deceased (cf. Job 42:7; John 9:2, 3). How can your suffering lead others to repentance? See Titus 2:7-8; 1 Peter 2:12-24, 3:8-18; Hebrews 13:18

Who Do You Fear?
Luke 13:31-35  
Life and death matters bring urgency and clarity; Jesus isn’t afraid.

...#1. Jesus insults both Herod & the pharisees, as well as the Jerusalem priests & scribes (vv32-33). How are these comments both ironic & similar to John 11:45-53? Look for details in Luke’s account of the Passion (Luke 22:35--23:43). In other words, how is this a disguised passion prediction (cf. 9:21-22, 43-45, 18:31-34)? By the way, how do you feel about Jesus being so contemptuous, offensive, & disrespectful? Note: think “fox” in the henhouse.

...#1. How does the Lord’s Prayer underscore the nearness St. Paul claims in v8bSee Deuteronomy 4:7; Matthew 6:9-15; Luke 11:2-4; Romans 5:1-2, 8:15-17; Small Catechism: Lord’s Prayer; SC available
