The Great Road Trip
5 February to 2 April 2023
As the time approached for him to be taken up to heaven, Jesus resolutely set out for Jerusalem. Luke 9:51
Ten chapters of Luke’s gospel document the events of Jesus’ journey to Jerusalem. These chapters are filled with momentous events and revolutionary teaching as Jesus and his followers make their way to the city.

Throughout this account, Luke continues to be concerned with showing how Jesus and the gospel impacted ordinary people, and how Jesus continued to both fulfil what was prophesied about the coming Messiah, while also continuing to confound expectations and to be very different from what people expect to find.
As we move out of the holidays, and into 2023 proper, we want to build on our theme of Welcome as we work through Luke’s gospel and follow Jesus on The Great Road Trip.
We will find him on the road.
