I want you to take your Bible now and open it to the twenty-second chapter of Luke's gospel. This beloved history of the Lord Jesus Christ has occupied our lives for so many years. We are finally coming to the climactic part of this wonderful history. The death of the Lord Jesus Christ, the events leading up to His death, immediately in the days before His crucifixion. And, of course, then His glorious resurrection and subsequent commission, so we are at the climactic point in this great book.
The text before us Luke chapter 22 and verse 21 and following. In fact, you need to take verses 21 through 38 as a unit. It's a long section and we'll divide it into two parts...one this morning, and another next Lord's day morning. But I've entitled this entire section from Luke 22:21 to 38 as "Table Talks on Trouble and Triumph....Table Talks on Trouble and Triumph." And I need to say, by way of introduction, that all the way through salvation history, God triumphs over trouble. Job says, "Man is born unto trouble as the sparks fly upward." Trouble defines a fallen world. Sin entered the world because of Adam and Eve in Genesis 3, and the world was cursed and trouble abounds....
