The Good News/Bad News
(8/29/2010)
Luke 3:1-20
John the Baptist Prepares the Way
 1In the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar—when Pontius Pilate was governor of Judea, Herod tetrarch of Galilee, his brother Philip tetrarch of Iturea and Traconitis, and Lysanias tetrarch of Abilene— 2during the high priesthood of Annas and Caiaphas, the word of God came to John son of Zechariah in the desert. 3He went into all the country around the Jordan, preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. 4As is written in the book of the words of Isaiah the prophet:
   "A voice of one calling in the desert,
   'Prepare the way for the Lord,
      make straight paths for him.
 5Every valley shall be filled in,
      every mountain and hill made low.
   The crooked roads shall become straight,
      the rough ways smooth.
 6And all mankind will see God's salvation.' "
 7John said to the crowds coming out to be baptized by him, "You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the coming wrath? 8Produce fruit in keeping with repentance. And do not begin to say to yourselves, 'We have Abraham as our father.' For I tell you that out of these stones God can raise up children for Abraham. 9The axe is already at the root of the trees, and every tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire."
 10"What should we do then?" the crowd asked.
 11John answered, "The man with two tunics should share with him who has none, and the one who has food should do the same."
 12Tax collectors also came to be baptized. "Teacher," they asked, "what should we do?"
 13"Don't collect any more than you are required to," he told
   them. 14Then some soldiers asked him, "And what should we do?"
      He replied, "Don't extort money and don't accuse people falsely—be content with your pay."
 15The people were waiting expectantly and were all wondering in their hearts if John might possibly be the Christ. 16John answered them all, "I baptize you with water. But one more powerful than I will come, the thongs of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire. 17His winnowing fork is in his hand to clear his threshing floor and to gather the wheat into his barn, but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire." 18And with many other words John exhorted the people and preached the good news to them.
 19But when John rebuked Herod the tetrarch because of Herodias, his brother's wife, and all the other evil things he had done, 20Herod added this to them all: He locked John up in prison.
 
 
Context and Call (vv. 1-6)
 
            Placed in real time, historic context
 
            Baptism of repentance fot eh forgiveness of sings
 
            Preparation for the Lord
 
Strong Words (vv. 7-14)
 
            Brood of vipers
 
            Children of Abraham
 
            Verse 6: All mankind will see God’s salvation
 
The Good News (vv. 15-18)
 
            Fire use 3 times – pur
 
            Reference to fire in verse 16
 
            Hell or something like it
 
            This is Good News because there is one coming who can bring salvation.
 
The Cost (vv. 19-20)
 
            John spoke up against an evil leader and it cost him.
 
            In preparing the way for the one who came to judge justly, he is unjustly thrown into prison
 
What is our bad/good news?
 
            The bad news is that there is evil in the world that we (and others) cannot deny.
 
            The good news is that we have been granted the choice to whether we want to be part of the plan of restoration and salvation or not.
