This week we (finally) are back in Luke and we have come to a climactic passage in which Jesus’s disciples finally recognize His identity as the Christ (Messiah).  This wonderful acknowledgement is followed by our Lord revealing just what it means for Him to be the Christ (His suffering, death and resurrection) and what it will mean to be His followers (taking up your cross).

The most important questions mankind face in our day are addressed in this passage – Who is Jesus?  Why did He come?  What does it mean to follow Him?  Jesus is the central figure in human history.  People have many different ideas about Him.  Scripture records the authoritative answers on which we stake our lives.

You might want to review Luke 1:1-9:22 before listening to this sermon.
