As we continue our study through Luke with Hallows Wallingford elder, George San Miguel, we see that throughout chapter 13 Jesus confronts the people’s view of God’s Kingdom and who it’s intended for. These “new” ideas challenged the existing doctrines of holiness held by the Jewish people. Jesus was setting the stage for a Gospel that is not confined to a particular country, people group, or class. This teaching threatened the established religious and political powers of His day. Even though this made Jesus an enemy to those who wanted to keep their power, we see Jesus is undeterred in accomplishing His mission here on earth.
