Topic: Luke's Perspective of Jesus: Ch. 2 Message Outlines

Luke 2:40-52 (3)

by Darrel Cline

Chapter # 2 Paragraph # 4 Study # 3
October 2, 2005
Lincolnton, N.C.


Thesis:The "standard of the year" gave the people of God the essential content of their expectation of redemption.

Introduction:In our last study we saw that Luke was fundamentally interested in revealing to us how the Child, Jesus, was being prepared by the grace of God as He who would undo what Adam did. Whereas Adam joined his wife in her sin, Jesus joined Himself to His bride's sin so that she might join Him in His righteousness. What Adam did in unbelieving rebellion, Jesus undid by believing submission. The paragraph before us is a key part of Luke's argument that Jesus is God's "second" Adam.

This morning we are going to focus our attention upon the "standard of the year" in its dominion over those who hope for the redemption of Jerusalem.
