The Son of Man: Luke 19:1-10

THE SON OF MAN

Sunday’s Sermon Overview

Read Luke 19:1-10

 

The Four Gospels are beautiful and intentional in their approach to Jesus. Looking at the different perspectives and vistas of who Jesus we must pay attention of the totality of Jesus and his Greatness.

 

The Gospel of Luke portrays Jesus as the Son of Man. The Son of Man is meant to invoke two meanings. First, Jesus as a human experiencing life as a real man. Second, as a title of position as the second Adam. Jesus not only experiences life as a human, but also comes to save humanity by paying the debt of man's sin. 

 

Sunday's sermon focused in on a passage that shows the Son of Man's mission and his meeting of Zacheus.
