This study focuses on the trial of Jesus at night, Jesus' confession, and Peter's denial of Jesus three times.
In this study we look at the immediate aftermath of Jesus' prayers in the garden of Gethsemane. Included in these verses is Jesus' arrest, the violent efforts of Peter to protect Jesus and the Lord's rebuke of this action.
In the final moments before Jesus undertakes the horrors of the trials, scourging, and crucifixion, we find him spending a few moments in a peaceful garden. Jesus, however, was feeling anything but peace. In the most mentally excruciating moment that Jesus faced, we find a number of lessons to learn.
In these passages, Jesus institutes a memorial service that Christians still observe today, in memory of Him. However, many questions and controversies have erupted over this memorial. From the contents, the way it was partaken, and even the importance of each emblem has been called into question. In this study we try to bring clarity to this subject using the words found in this account and others as our guide.
In this study we look at the final days before Jesus' crucifixion. Included is the anointing of Mary, the covenanting of Judas with the chief priests for Jesus' life, and the preparation for the Passover meal.
In a glimpse into the actual day of judgement, Jesus shows His disciples then and us today what really matters in this world. We look at these verses in our study this week.
The second parable by Jesus shortly before His death, He tells His disciples about a master giving his servants talents of money. One was given 5, one 2, and the last was given one. What did they do with them and what lessons should we learn? Listen to find out!
Under consideration here is the parable of the 5 wise and 5 foolish virgins. This is a very well-known parable and has many memorable aspects to it. Some of the difficulty to it, however, comes with determining what is being represented by things like, the oil, the virgins themselves, and them sleeping. Listen to see how we study this parable out!
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.
