Discussion for Luke 7

  • Peter A. Okebukola
    Jesus in action! He has power to heal body and soul. He forgave the sins of the woman. He can forgive our sins even if they are as red as scarlet, He will wash us clean as snow. Only confess and belief.
  • A disciple
    (18-23) John the Baptist was filled mightily with the Holy Ghost from his mother's womb; and he never had any kind of crisis of doubting, like some teach: but from the day he started preaching to the people, John knew that he was sent to go before the Lord, to announce His coming, and direct all men to "Behold the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world;" and that, "He must increase!"
  • Stephende
    As Byron says, here is John in prison unable to all together construe what is happening with his cousin, Jesus,even though he witnessed the holy spirit descend opon him like a dove and heard the voice of God commending Jesus as his son. Faith is hard. It must be hard fought
  • Merry
    Jesus is filled with compassion...praises!...Christ travels from town to town teaching the ways of God and loving people. We as believers in Christ must do the same. "Unity of Oneness "
  • David A
    Jesus seems 2 b quoting first part of isaiah 35 prophecy speaking of the miracles... but Isaiah goes on yet jesus left out about the righteous being upheld and the wicked sinners being judged.. Jesus was telling john he knew what troubled him.. John saw the miracles but where was the wickeds' judgments? explains why Jesus went on 2 say Jon would b least n kingdom if relying on his own record
  • Bruce
    Nick: John, baptized Jesus knowing he is The Savior!
    John is Now setting in a dirty smelly prison cell, probably bruised and bloody, where the food isn't so great. Wondering, is this the one? Is there another? So he sends his disciples to ask are you the one? The flesh needs confirmation.
    Blessed assurance He is the One !
    Peace like a river!
