The Life of Jesus – Week 13

Jesus and the Log Eye. In Luke 6:37-42, we see a great example of how Jesus used humor to illustrate his point. Jesus is in the middle of an extremely controversial, scandalous teaching focused on radical love, an upside down kind of love that loves one’s enemy, that prays for one’s enemy, that blesses one’s enemy, that reaches out to one’s enemy with kindness and grace. He stuns us by calling us, as his followers, to be merciful to our enemies as God is merciful to us, to be as expansive with grace to our enemies
as God is expansive with his grace toward us.
