Point Out the Parallels
There are many parallels to notice when reading Bible stories, and pointing them out to your students, or asking them to look for them, goes a long way in understanding the Bible even better. In the story found in Luke 4:16-30 here are some to note:
- The synagogue as a focal point used by Jesus when He was 12, when He drove out the money changers, and when He spoke to the locals in Nazareth.
- Jesus quoting Scripture to help people see He is the fulfillment of what had long been foretold.
- The times Jesus was miraculously rescued because it was not yet His time to die.
