The Power, Purpose, and Presence of Jesus

From Series: The Gospel According to Luke, Volume 2

Luke 5:12  (ID: 2095)

Jesus is not a patch to be added to the life we already have or the religion we vainly observe; He came not to improve upon who and what we are, but to make us brand new. To illustrate the transforming power of Christ, Alistair Begg profiles three needy men and the encounter each one had with Jesus. As Christ demonstrated His power to them, He revealed His purpose and invited them to share it, just as He invites us.


Jesus Cleanses a Leper

12While he was in one of the cities, there came a man full of leprosy.2 And when he saw Jesus, he fell on his face and begged him, “Lord, if you will, you can make me clean.”
