Jesus concludes his sermon on the mount and travels down the mountain into a town on the coast of the Sea of Galilee named Capernaum. On his way there and once in the city, we are told about 3 distinct and significant healings that Jesus does. What can we learn from these healings about the authority of Jesus and our own faith? We discuss these things in our study this week.
Is your house built on the rock or the sand? It all depends on whether or not you are listening to the words of Jesus! We discuss this exact concept in our final study on the Sermon on the Mount.
"You will know them by their fruits." As Jesus is coming to the end of His sermon on the mount, he offers warnings to His listeners about false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing but are ravening wolves on the inside. How can you tell if you are dealing with a false prophet? What will their eventual end be? We discuss those things in our study.
This particular set of verses that we look at are some of the most recognizable in the Bible! Jesus tells His audience, "Knock, and it shall be opened to you!" He tells them about the "Golden Rule" and about the difference between the strait and wide gates and where they lead. We will try to dive deeper into these subjects in our study this week.
Our study this week will look at the importance of putting our priorities in the correct order. Jesus instructs His followers about how they are to fast and to lay up treasures in heaven rather than on earth where moths and rust can corrupt them. What should this tell us about the relation between the Christian and the material things of life? We explore such questions in our study on Matthew 6:16-24
This week we look at the model prayer that Jesus gave to His disciples. Was this prayer meant to be something that Christians were to continue to pray for all time? Is it something that we can take lessons from in our prayers today? These are the types of things we discuss in this study.
In our study this week, Jesus switches the focus of His sermon to discuss the more practical side of what it means to be a follower of Christ. He directly condemns what it means to be a hypocrite among other lessons He wanted His followers to know. Listen below to find out more!
As opposed to the general idea that many people have about fighting those who fight with you, Jesus instead tells His listeners to love their enemies. How do we do good to those who do us evil? How is this in similar fashion as God the Father? What does this look like to the rest of the world? We talk about these things in our study on the last portion of Matthew chapters 5.
