Colin Smith recently shared some thoughts on the preaching of Jesus out of Luke 4.
Smith noted Four Distinguishing Marks of Jesus’ Preaching:
- Jesus preaches the scriptures.
- Jesus preaches directly to the human condition.
- Jesus preaches himself.
- Jesus preaches Grace.
But, as Smith points out, the hearers were filled with wrath despite the excellent preaching. Smith therefore concludes Grace will make you angry or lead you to worship.
