Notes & Transcripts
Luke 22:14–20 NLT
When the time came, Jesus and the apostles sat down together at the table. Jesus said, “I have been very eager to eat this Passover meal with you before my suffering begins. For I tell you now that I won’t eat this meal again until its meaning is fulfilled in the Kingdom of God.” Then he took a cup of wine and gave thanks to God for it. Then he said, “Take this and share it among yourselves. For I will not drink wine again until the Kingdom of God has come.” He took some bread and gave thanks to God for it. Then he broke it in pieces and gave it to the disciples, saying, “This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” After supper he took another cup of wine and said, “This cup is the new covenant between God and his people—an agreement confirmed with my blood, which is poured out as a sacrifice for you.

He took some bread and gave thanks to God for it. Then he broke it in pieces and gave it to the disciples, saying, “This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.”
What were they remembering about Jesus in those early years of the faith.
The early church was a doctrine mess
In fact, much of the New Testament was written to correct various wrong ideas.
In Corinth, Christians were tolerating incest, suing one another in court, eating in pagan temples and misbehaving at the Lord's Supper.
Some thought they should be celibate,
Some thought they should divorce their non-Christian spouses.
Paul had to correct all these ideas, and history tells us that he had only limited success.
But the people were Christian despite their mistakes and carnal mindedness.
Paul told us what was most important: the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ..
1 Corinthians 15:3–4 NLT
I passed on to you what was most important and what had also been passed on to me. Christ died for our sins, just as the Scriptures said. He was buried, and he was raised from the dead on the third day, just as the Scriptures said.
and the importance of love
Chapter 13
Love Is the Greatest
If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angels, but didn’t love others, I would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.
9 Now our knowledge is partial and incomplete, and even the gift of prophecy reveals only part of the whole picture! 10 But when the time of perfection comes, these partial things will become useless.
and the importance of love (). Our knowledge, he says, is only partial (verse 9). It will be completed after Christ returns, but for now, love is more important than knowledge (verses 13, 2).
12 Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity.* All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely.
13 Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love.
How did Jesus display this Christ like Love?
Samaritan woman (isis)
Incredible enemies - yet Jesus spent two days in their town
Separation from women - Morning Mitzvah’s Prayers
Woman with issue of Blood
God healed her to make an example of how far his grace goes

Outside of religious community
He would become unclean if he touched her
Lepers
Their condition was a result of their sin or parents sin
Aids was thought a judgement against homosexuals
Until Magic Johnson contracted it.
Cancer Treatments
Polio
Small Pox etc
Are God’s blessings through doctors?
Is the cure for aids a blessing from God too?
Zacchaeus
Worst guy in the town
The adulterous woman
The prostitute that wiped his feet
This kind of behavior would be equivalent to you walking down the street or having lunch with a drag queen
