"I wish that all the LORD's people were prophets and that the LORD would put his Spirit on them!" - Numbers 11:29

In May I taught about historical context and repetition of ideas. In June I taught about Chiasms. In July I taught about PaRDeS and the Remez (hint). Last month I taught about repentance and changing how we think. Not knowing where to go this month, the Holy Spirit suddenly brought it all together in the story about Jesus sending out the seventy in Luke 10:1-17. As Hannibal from the A-Team said, "I love it when a plan comes together!" I love seeing God's hand in my study.
In the context of Luke's gospel, the transfiguration just happened which is a turning point in Jesus' ministry. From that point on Jesus set His sights on the end game of Jerusalem and the cross, purposefully multiplying the Kingdom's influence through the disciples. Taking up the mantle of John the Baptist to "make straight paths for the Lord", He sends out the seventy "ahead of Him" proclaiming the kingdom of God and healing the sick just like when He had sent the twelve earlier. Half of the Greek manuscripts say seventy-two, half say seventy. I have reason to agree with seventy.
I found a loose chiasm in this passage:

Jesus sent the seventy representing Him (v16) and participating in His kingdom work and performing miracles (v9), which are the sign of God's reigning power (Luke 11:20). Except when Jesus sent the twelve and seventy, the disciples did not participate in this kind of Kingdom work on their own initiative until after the Holy Spirit came on Pentecost and God poured out His spirit on the church. From then until today, it is expected that we participate in expanding the Kingdom in this way.
It seems to me that judgment is at the center of this passage. It feels out of place, almost like Jesus is in a bad mood. Is there a reason for the pronouncement? The seventy later return with joy, and all of this Kingdom stuff seems pretty positive, yet Jesus breaks into a weird judgment against Chorazin, a town mentioned nowhere else, and Bethsaida which is barely mentioned. Neither is known for being unrepentant. It does appear that God's miracles should lead us to examine our ways and change how we think, siding with God.
A passage standing out as weird or out of place is probably a Remez, a map to an Old Testament treasure. Examine the story and ask the questions. Where else have we seen a leader gathering seventy together, and miracles and judgment are involved? Chorazin and Bethsaida don't appear in the Tenach, so I did a search on blueletterbible.org for "seventy":
Ex 1:5 - descendents of Jacob numbered seventy... dead end.
Ex 15:27 and Num 33:9 at Elim there are twelve springs and seventy palms, wonder if that's something... Since the two Elim references mention 12 and 70 I'll definitely note that one, but it's not quite what I'm looking for. I take note of what the Spirit highlights.
Ex 24:1 Seventy elders of Israel are called up the mountain, but only Moses is allowed to meet with God. Not quite...
Num 11:16-17 The LORD said to Moses: "Bring me seventy of Israel's elders who are known to you as leaders and officials among the people. Have them come to the tent of meeting, that they may stand there with you. I will come down and speak with you there, and I will take some of the power of the Spirit that is on you and put it on them. They will share the burden of the people with you so that you will not have to carry it alone." ...25 The LORD came down in the cloud and spoke with him, and he took some of the power of the Spirit that was on him and put it on the seventy elders. When the Spirit rested on them, they prophesied--but did not do so again.
Hey, that feels right. A covenant mediator calling together seventy leaders to share the burden... check. Transfer of authority? Check. Anointed for power, supernaturally equipped for ministry and approved by God? Check. Miracles? Manna and quail. Judgment? There was fire around the camp in V1, and the plague in v31. There's even a nod to the transfiguration before the sending when "The LORD came down in the cloud and spoke with him". Chorazin means "furnace of smoke" and Bethsaida means "House of fish". Fire, meat... close enough. This passage seems like a likely contender for the Remez. So how does it tie together?
Jesus knows the Kingdom won't expand with Him alone (Jn 12:24). So God transfers some of His authority and gives it to His disciples. Jesus is represented as a better Moses calling seventy to supernaturally empower them to share the burden of rulership. Nations are called to repentance, trusting in God's reign. Jesus as a better Moses doesn't complain, but He takes up a role reserved for God alone in pronouncing judgment upon unbelief consistent with the Numbers account. Luke includes the judgment at the center of the chiasm as a Remez to confirm the central theme of Numbers 11: God's miracles should lead us to examine our ways and change how we think, trusting in Him alone. Jesus sends this message before Him so people's hearts are prepared, preparing them for the Lord's visitation. The LORD they seek is about to come to His temple.

"He raises up the poor from the dust,
He lifts up the needy from the ash heap
To make them sit with nobles,
And inherit a seat of honor and glory…"(1 Sam 2:8)

We are happy to highlight our friends Wayne and Marilyn Leblanc, who started Glory Bound Unlimited (GBU). Their "boots on the ground" nonprofit organization runs a Car Donation Program called "Cars for Life". GBU's mission is to help fight for those who can't fight for themselves: to bring life and hope to the underprivileged and exploited, to speak out for those without a voice, and to restore the unloved and rescue the unborn - to help them "inherit a seat of honor and glory."

It's all about restoring hope and dignity!

What makes GBU unique is that income generated from their Car Donation program will help fund their outreach ministry (Helping Hands, which is partnered with Kainos) and the partners within their network. Helping hands works with the homeless in Norwalk, CT every Sunday outside the Open Door Shelter where they provide lunch, clothing, prayer and spiritual food to those who are in need. Glory Bound accepts donations of used cars in exchange for a tax deduction; proceeds will help underprivileged women and children - those who are homeless, trafficked, overlooked, orphaned and marginalized - in our country and around the world.

Find out why over 1.5 million couples have attended FamilyLife's Weekend to Remember. Marriage is a lifelong adventure of growing together through every age and stage of life. The happiest couples are those who commit to learning skills that help them weather difficult seasons and deal confidently with relationship challenges. It's your turn to make a great marriage happen. The Weekend to Remember focuses on the marital relationship, providing expert speakers who practice what they preach, and material to enrich and in many cases provide breakthrough for issues a couple are dealing with. It is not counseling, but prayer support is available.

Attendees across the nation have unearthed hope and joy in their marriages. They report that their marital satisfaction increases an average of four points on a scale of 1-10! With this kind of investment, marriages emerge less stormy, more weatherproof. And many who have arrived with divorce papers in hand... have left hand-in-hand. It's the marriage event that pays for itself in lifelong satisfaction. Each getaway begins Friday evening and continues through noon on Sunday. It's filled with informative group sessions and alone time with your spouse. You will never be asked to share intimate details of your relationship with anyone. Individually, couples complete special projects designed to reignite the spark and keep the flame burning!

Normally $350 per couple, there is limited 1/2 price registration thru 9/19 of $175 per couple. After 9/19, we have access to a discount code that will provide a $100 discount. For active duty military, guard, reserves it is $120 per couple. Pastors are free.
For more information, contact Steve and Angela or click here!
