Discussion for Luke 4

  • Steve morrow
    LUKE 4:4 and JESUS answered him saying it is written --- MAN DOES NOT LIVE --- by bread alone --- BUT BY EVERY WORD OF GOD --- PROVERBS 18:21 --- death and life --- are in the power of the tongue and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof JOHN 6:68 then simon peter answered HIM LORD to whom shall we go thou --- THOU HAST THE WORDS OF ETERNAL LIFE---
  • A disciple
    servant; it didn't take much for that serpent to come out and expose itself! "He that denies the Son, the same HAS NOT the Father...Who is he that denies that the Son of God has come in the flesh if not Antichrist?" Jesus didn't learn Torah from the Rabbis but spoke it to His servant Moses in the holy mount: and is who was with God and is God and IS coming again in all His Divine power and glory!
  • A disciple
    servant; it sounds like you don't believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is in fact the eternal Son of God; but you write as if the Lord is merley like any other man, who at some point mysteriously became, (or realized), that He was the Christ. Jesus is God manifest in the flesh, and was in divine glory from all eternity WITH the Father. He didn't discuss Torah He IS the Law and the holy Glad Tidings.
  • Servant of God
    Jesus-Church. He would daily be in the Church, or Temple with critical discussion regarding the Torah. When at the Reading of Issiah they heard enough andtossed him out! The Devil tempted him with being at the pinnacle of the Church, "Get there behind me Satan" What a card, that Satan. Woe unto Jesus if he didn't preach the gospel for therefore was he sent forth, to teach, and to witnessTruth
  • A disciple
    In the temptations that Jesus endured, He was indeed the same Man as all He answered the devil by the Scriptures, for the Scriptures lived in Him. Out of the abundance of His heart His mouth speaks; and as He speaks from His heart so is He! Giving NO PLACE to the devil nor any credence to a single thought or word from him; Jesus' entire course in life was what came out in His behavior and words.
  • Steve morrow
    LUKE 4:4 AND JESUS ANSWERED HIM SAYING IT IS WRITTEN THAT MAN SHALL --- NOT LIVE --- BY BREAD ALONE BUT BY EVERY WORD OF GOD *****ACTS 5:20 GO STAND AND SPEAK IN THE TEMPLE TO THE PEOPLE --- ALL --- THE WORDS OF THIS LIFE
