"Happy are you grain?poor; the Kingdom of God is yours!
"Happy are you who are hungry now; you will be filled! “
Happy are you who weep now; you will laugh!
"Happy are you when people hate you, reject you, insult you, and say that you are evil, all because of the Son of Man!
Be glad when that happens and dance for joy, because a great reward is kept for you in heaven. For their ancestors did the very same things to the prophets. (Lk 6:27)
"But how terrible for you who are rich now; you have had your easy life!
How terrible for you who are full now; you will go hungry!
"How terrible for you who laugh now; you will mourn and weep!
How terrible when all people speak well of you; their ancestors said the very same things about the false prophetsNow versus future

Do for others just what you want them to do for you.

First person to receive a note & pass the word around from the first to the last one. Last person to write down what was heard. Check how the word has changed.
Words have effect on us. They can make or break us. Jesus’ word is powerful as seen from 7:1-10. It depicts faith on the part of the Centurion and also the power of the Lord’s word.

“Sir, don’t trouble yourself. I do not deserve to have you come into my house;…Just give the order, and my servant will get well.”
He recognised the power of Jesus in the invisible world. Just issue the command & the invisible power will obey.
Contrast it with
The disciples waking Jesus in the storm(8:25)
The people of Nazareth (Mark 6:6)
Makan with Simon the Pharisee 29:10 (7:36-49)
John the Baptist in jail (7:18-35)
By touching the coffin, He became ceremonially unclean. But cf the leper (5:12-15), both were healed and Jesus was not polluted by the touch
Note how the word has spread to whole country (till Judea)! (see map)

Other instance – Jairus’ daughter(8:40-56)
A strange question: “Are you the one John said was going to come, or should we expect someone else?”
Four possible reasons:
Time for Jesus to reveal Himself
To satisfy his own disciples
Is Jesus the same person he baptised?
Tried by imprisonment, he doubted
Jesus replied (v22) about the things they ought to look for in the Messiah. This passage is a Messianic prophecy. Jesus exhibits proofs of its fulfillment in Him. To the Baptist in prison these signs would be particularly helpful, far more than a declaration from our Lord. Nothing would help him like facts. (Marshall pg83)
Now take a break… listen to this song.
She came wasting / Pouring out perfume and tears
She came loving /Wiping Your feet with her hair
Her story is told /Wherever gospel will go
She took one chance /To worship You with extravagance
And the house was filled with the fragrance
Of the sacrifice of the shameless
She came wasting
She came loving
She came giving all
Who do you think that it is wasting?
Why do you think she shed tears at Jesus’ feet?
Do you think it demands a lot for her to do what she did? Why?
Why was the word “extravagance*” used?
What is the application for us in this day and age?
*Extravagant: Given to lavish or imprudent expenditure; exceeding reasonable bounds; excessive; unrestrained.
Jewish customs (pg 86)
Water to wash the dusty & hot feet - tears
Kiss of peace as the ordinary salutation of respect – kiss Jesus’ feet
Anointing head with oil ie exceptional mark of honour – anoint feet with perfume/ointment
Lesson on parable of the two debtors
The forgiving of our sins by God is valued by us in proportion to our sense of sin. Our perception of the greatness of God’s love and our love to God is in the same ratio.

2nd debtor, 50 pence – Simon)
