Discussion for Luke 4

  • Michael C.
    We don't listen to, or answer the devil's talk, about his power; he is a liar from the beginning, and the father of lies. His name literally means, Slanderer." Read the divine account in Genesis 3, and we see nothing said to the serpent about power and glory being given him! Where then did he get that perverted idea? He made it up, just like everything he thinks and says; all perversion and lies!
  • Wayne
    The Prince of the power of the air. V.6. All the power and the glory of the world has been given to satan. And he gives them to whomsoever he will. Understanding that, we can see how evil is being given out in the world today. To gov. officials, media, etc. Satan is free to distribute the power he has been given.

    Verse 18 shows that Jesus had God's spirit and his authority to preach came from the highest authority.
  • Dora Hernandez
    It make me see Jesus is very strong and no one could ever be as strong as he was
  • Brother William
    41 And devils also came out of many, crying out, and saying, Thou art Christ the Son of God. And he rebuking them suffered them not to speak: for they knew that he was Christ. What thing is this? What new doctrine is this? What manner of man is this that even the unclean spirits are subject to Him?
  • Irene123
    Luke 4: 17-21-- I love these vs. especially because they are 'endowed' with such solemnity and grace. Jesus took the BOOK, opened it to the place where it was written and 'standing' in respect of the reading of the word - He let them know WHY He was here; then, after closing the BOOK He sat down. What He read was a summary of the next three years of His life - in a nutshell.
