The Parable of the Dishonest Manager

January 13, 2019 • Joel Stamoolis • Luke 16:1-13

Although Jesus concludes this parable with a simple directive and then explains the reasoning behind his directive, Christians often find this parable and the accompanying directive perplexing. Our goal this morning is to slow down and listen carefully to the words of Jesus, that we may hear him well and obey.

Proclamation

Luke’s Gospel tells the story of Jesus. Incarnation, Crucifixion, Resurrection, and finally Ascension. That sequence raises a natural question for us:“What happens now?” Jesus answers that question in our scripture reading today: Proclamation.

Resurrection

The Christian witness is simple. It is foundational. It is defendable. And it is, above all, Good News. This Resurrection Sunday we gather to give voice to that witness as God’s People holding to God’s Word, filled by God’s Spirit. “The Lord has risen indeed!”
