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.
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.
