Discussion for Luke 8

  • A disciple
    This chapter seems to have a special devotion to how the Lord cares for women and girls. It opens with mentioning how "many" "ministered unto Him of their substance;" and then finishes with showing how that Jesus knows who is touching Him in Faith; and about WHO is all the joy and meaning in their parents' life, and that the Lord is not willing to take her away from them. We learn a lot by these!
  • A disciple
    "And certain women, which had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities . . which ministered unto him of their substance." There are many references to women in the early Church; and what they did, and how important they were. There were no women called to be Apostles; and it was understood as God's commandment, that they not teach, nor dominate over men. But they helped in many ways with honor!

    Vs. 17 was recently applied to domestic violence, or marriage tyranny. These seem to be very private issues, and many times people try to hide these problems. However,t his brings comfort that Jehovah God is aware of all things, and will bring justice upon those who are evil to their marriage mates.
  • Irene123
    To Lou Charles - another way to view Jesus saying, :Tell no one" is - he knew they would - and His desire was for His people to be witnesses; reverse phsycology.
  • Andy
    Jesus shows His deity in this chapter first He shows His power over the sea, then He shows His power over the spirits, then He shows His power over disease and sickness, then He shows His power over death.
