Gospel According to Luke Groups

The word "gospel" isn't a word we use very often.

And yet, it was a word 1st Century citizens of the Roman Empire were well acquainted with. It was the common word Caesar threw around when he was ready to announce a military victory that expanded the empire once again. Gospel simply means "Good news." For Caesar, good news meant the expansion of his territory.

When the early Christians were announcing the good news of Jesus' arrival, ministry, and resurrection, they stole Caesar's word. They co-opted his celebratory word to announce another kingdom, the kingdom of God.

Luke has "good news" to offer. And this good news is surprising. It's the most counterintuitive news you can imagine. It's good news for people who always seem to be on the outside, and it's bad news for those who often find themselves on the inside.

Hosting a Gospel According to Luke Group

You are invited to explore the “Good News” of Jesus during a 7-week series of messages about the Gospel According to Luke. In a message focus group, you can invite some of your friends to join you as you explore its impact on your life and discover the power of inclusion and how we can respond to Jesus’ call on our lives. Hosting a message focus group is simple:

  • Invite a few friends to join you at a convenient location (a coffee shop, restaurant, workplace, or even a home) at whatever time works for the group each week.
  • Watch the brief recap video (Facebook Live broadcasts are accessible from Collin Packer's Facebook Page) together on the device you choose as an introduction and recap of the message. (Recap videos and discussion questions will be posted weekly in the Weekly Small Group Resources section above.)
  • Enjoy watching what God does in the process.
