Whose Son Is the Christ?

Luke 20:42-44 ~ After rebuffing the scribes, Pharisees, Sadducees, and Herodians, Jesus asks his own question to those who were trying to challenge him.

Marriage in Heaven

Luke 20:27-40 ~ One final attempt to discredit Jesus during the week leading to the cross, this time from the Sadducees, was a question regarding the fate of a woman married several times under Levitical law when she is resurrected in Heaven.

Surely Not!

Luke 20:9-18 ~ Following the challenge to his authority by the religious leaders in the crowd, Jesus tells a parable about a vineyard owner who attempts to require settlement from his tenants. Pastor Rod Bunton teaches the meaning of the parable and how it directly applied to the nation of Israel, which shocked those listening when they realized what that meant to them.

Challenging the Authority of Jesus

Luke 20:1-8 ~ Following the cleansing of the temple, the chief priests, scribes, and elders started scheming to find a way to discredit Jesus and they confronted him with a question that was certain to accomplish that.
