Learning from Luke: Talk At The Table

Learning from Luke: Talk At The Table Sermon Audio Here

Luke 22:14-23
During a Passover Seder, the youngest child asks an opening question: Why is this night different from all the other nights? Today, we’ll ask much the same thing: why is this meal different from all other meals? In other words, what’s really going on when we celebrate the Last Supper?

Living the Meaning of the Last Supper

Time to Remember
Luke 22:14-16

  • v14 Passover meal context: a time of remembrance of God’s deliverance (anything more is probably stretching it)
  • v15 Jesus’ desire is to be with His friends
  • v16 the meaning of the Supper: Jesus desires fellowship with us through remembering God’s deliverance

Take On the Relationship
Luke 22:17-20

  • v17/18 Share with thanksgiving what you’ve been given
  • v19 ponder as you remember; what does this mean?
  • v20 recognize the new way: new covenant, new way of doing things (cf. Isaiah 42:8-10)
  • New Life Lived by Relationship, not Rules

Resign or Restore
Luke 22:21-23

  • v21 before we abuse Judas, think of Peter: we’ve betrayed Him, too; the difference? Peter sought restoration; Judas gave himself up to his sin
  • v22 Jesus is the Sacrifice for ALL; if we deny this sacrifice for us, we are stuck in our woe

v23: A good question even today: am I seeking restoration from God, or resignation to sin?
