Luke 5-7

5 - Jesus calls disciples, heals a leper, connects His healing power to His authority to forgive sins, and contrary to Pharisees says He came to celebrate recovering lost sinners.

6 - Jesus "works" and heals on the Sabbath. Jesus chooses twelve disciples, blesses the suffering and curses the rich, calls us to love enemies, to give without expecting a return, to not judge unless we're ready to be judged by the same standard. A good heart brings good deeds. So do what I say, and you will stand in the flood.

7 - A centurion shows faith in Jesus' authority. Widow's son raised from death. Johndoubts Jesus, who affirms his ministry. Their generation has rejected them both. A sinful woman loves Jesus much, while His Pharisee host loves Jesus little.
