Unfortunately, due to a technical error, we did not have our study of Matthew 15 recorded. This week however, we look at some interesting verses where Jesus rebukes the Pharisees and the Sadducees and
This chapter covers a lot of ground in the life of Jesus. We get a flashback of the death of John the Baptist and the circumstances surrounding it. We have recorded the feeding of the 5,000 with only 5 loaves and 2 fish. Then Jesus comes to the disciples walking on the water and calms the storm. We look at all of these things and more in our study of Matthew 14!
This week, we finish Matthew chapter 13 by looking at the last 4 parables of the Treasure in the Field, the Pearl of Great Price, the Dragnet, and the Householder. We also cover the reaction to Jesus from his hometown.
Continuing to teach in parables, Jesus brings some new imagery to light in the portion of scripture that we look at this week in our study through Matthew. The primary parable is that of the wheat and the tares, but we also cover the parables of the mustard seed and the parable of the leaven.
Jesus begins to start to teach the multitudes in parables after facing several episodes of opposition from the Pharisees. He begins by describing a simple scene of a sower sowing seed. This is something that everyone there should've been very familiar with; but with this imagery, Jesus teaches valuable lessons about the kingdom of heaven.
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.
