A Summer of Healing II
v.22 All spoke well of him…
v.23 Jesus said to them,…
v.24 “no prophet is accepted in his hometown.
v.25 I assure you there were many widows in Israel
in Elijah’s time,…
v.26 Yet Elijah was not sent to any of them,
but to a widow in Zarephath in the region of Sidon.
v.27 And there were many in Israel with leprosy
in the time of Elisha the prophet,
yet not one was cleansed- only Naaman the Syrian.”
A Summer of Healing –
Jesus’ sermon from two OT stories and prophets
Both, are outsiders!!!
1- God heals those on the outside
2- God asks something of us
3- Now I know…
