The Pharisees are asking Jesus for a sign, they want something more from Jesus to prove that he is who he says he is. Jesus tells them that they will not receive a sign but uses some very interesting imagery to show why this would be the case. We look at these things in our study this week.
Jesus in these passages addresses the Pharisees outrageous claims about working for Beelzebub, about what that would mean, and the danger inherent in their attitude that they would even make such claims as that when the power of God was on display. Listen in!
Here we study a historically difficult section of scriptures that have to do with Jesus and the disciples and an accusation made by the Pharisees concerning the Sabbath day law. How does Jesus refute these things and what do the examples mean that he uses? We discuss these things in our study.
In this study we look at Jesus' condemnation of the cities that he performed his miracles in, the relationship that exists between the Father and the Son, and Jesus' invitation to all that are weary and heavy laden!
Jesus, in this particular portion of scripture, is approached by 2 of John's disciples that are seeking for answers of Jesus regarding whether or not He is the Chosen One. Jesus responds to these brilliantly, alleviating any doubts that John might've had and also rebuking the critics as well. We discuss those things in our study this week.
We conclude our study of Jesus' instructions to his apostles before sending them out to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. He encourages them to stay true despite persecution and to always put God first in all things. We take a closer look at these things, as well as some practical application for today's world.
We are continuing our study through the book of Matthew. Similar to last week, this will simply be a narration of the answers that were sent to me. Are study is going to talk about what Jesus was telling his apostles as he sends them out on a limited commission to go preach to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
This presentation will be slightly different than usual. Due to the COVID-19 virus, we have canceled our normal Wednesday night services. However, our brethren sent in their answers to our normal questions. I have compiled them into a transcript and an audio recording of myself narrating them. This is only a temporary arrangement until we can get back to our regularly scheduled study through Matthew. Enjoy!
After Jesus heals the man that was possessed with demons in the land of the Gergesenes, he travels back to the city of Capernaum. In our study, we look at the miracles that Matthew records and the impact and implications that they had.
After the accounts of Jesus 3 different healings in the city of Capernaum, Jesus and his disciples decide to get into a ship and sail to another region around the Sea of Galilee to the country of the Gergesenes. Our study will cover what happened before, during, and after their trip.
