Title: Good, Excluding News
Scripture: Luke 4:16-30
Speaker: Bill Gorman,

>> Jesus is easy to hate (and hard to truly love).
>> We can love the idea of Jesus and hate the real Jesus.
>> We can be amazed by Jesus without being mastered by Jesus.
>> We can want the love of Jesus as long as it’s not for everyone.
"To the congregation in the synagogue Jesus was saying: If you want to receive the benefits of the new golden age of the Messiah, you must imitate the faith of these Gentiles. I am not asking you merely to torare or to accept them. You must see such Gentiles as your spiritual superiors and acknowledge that they can instruct you in the nature of authentic faith."
- Kenneth Bailey, Jesus Through Middle Eastern Eyes: Cultural Studies in the Gospels
