Words Worth Dying For
If Jesus was so good and so loving, how did he end up on a cross? The truth is not everyone appreciated what he said and did. In fact, at his death, the religious leaders accused him, his disciples abandoned him and the crowds jeered him. This begs the question, have we truly heard what he has said? In the next seven weeks we’ll look at some of Jesus provocative sayings found in the gospel according to Luke. For Jesus, and maybe in the end for us as well, they are… words worth dying for.
