In our final study of Matthew 24, there are many interesting questions that arise. Is this merely a continuation of the topic from verses past? Is this describing something entirely new? What are they supposed to be watching for and what do the parables at the end mean? Listen and find out!
In this portion of the chapter, the wording is some of the most vivid and powerful that we find in scripture. However, the question remains: is this a description of the destruction of Jerusalem or of the end of time when the Lord comes on a cloud? We will look at these questions in our study.
Our study begins with verse 15 talking about the "abomination of desolation" that is talked about in the book of Daniel. What does this mean? They are given instructions about their flight and the warning against false christs and false prophets. Are these things talking about the end of time or the destruction of Jerusalem, or something else? We examine them in this study.
Before Jesus' crucifixion, the disciples are in Jerusalem and marveling at the sights of the Temple. Jesus shockingly tells them there was coming a time when there wouldn't be one stone left on top of another. In their amazement, they want to know when these things will be. In this chapter, which is one of the most disputed in the Bible, we look at their question and Jesus' response.
Jesus continues his pronouncement of woes upon the hypocritical scribes and Pharisees. They kept up the outward appearances yet ignored the fundamental principles of being a follower of God. In this study we talk about the judgments that are pronounced upon them as well as the dangers of hypocrisy.
In the final week of Jesus' life before crucifixion and in what we assume is his final public discourse, the Son of God issues some of the harshest rebukes in all of scriptures. The scribes and Pharisees were sitting in Moses' seat teaching the people, yet their lives were full of hypocrisy and sin. In this study we focus on the first part of this discourse.
In the final week of the life of Christ before crucifixion, there are a series of questions and temptations that are thrown towards Him by the elitist Pharisees, Sadducees, and Herodians. Jesus tackles them all handily and we look closer at how these conversations played out in our study.
This study focuses in on the parable of the wedding feast as the 3rd of a trilogy of parables that are showing the failures of the Jewish nation and God's plan moving forward with the establishment of the Church.
This study takes us through the chief priests and elder's questioning of Jesus' authority, Jesus' response, and then the first 2 of a trilogy of parables directed at the unbelieving Jews that had rejected the Messiah.
This study talks about the beginning of the final week of the life of Jesus before the cross. Highlighting this is the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem. The crowds love Him and are praising Him as the Messiah, leaving the chief priests and Pharisees furious. We study these events, and the ones surrounding it.
