We are only going to dig into two verses in this lesson. They contain some of the fruit that came out of the Day of Pentecost as seen in Acts chapter two. There are two points that stand out. The first is the power of the Holy Spirit that brought 3000 souls to Christ and the second is the devotion those early saints had for Jesus. This is a very important lesson to understand and apply to our lives.
As we begin studying Luke chapter 21 we will take a close look at a widow whom Jesus praised. This is followed by the Lord prophesying the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple. Then we will start examining Christ’s teaching on His second coming. There is some good stuff to dig into in this lesson.
There are two principal topics in this lesson. The first is on the necessity of repentance being an integral part of a genuine Christian’s life. The second is about the account where Jesus heals a demon possessed woman and the persecution that comes against Him as a result. This is a great lesson so don’t miss it.
We will begin studying a new account in Luke which is about an expert in the Mosaic Law that tried to entrap Jesus. The Lord turned the table on the lawyer and forced him to answer a question Jesus presented to him. This is a challenging exchange that teaches some important truths on what it means to follow Jesus. This interaction leads into the Parable of the Good Samaritan that we will begin examining at the end of this lesson.
In this lesson we will begin examining the message of John the Baptizer. His message is summarized in Isaiah 40 that is a prophesy about the one who would prepare the way for Messiah. Luke quotes this prophesy in chapter three, verses three through six. The prize of this prophesy is the promise that if we will prepare the way, then God will to come to us and we can freely go to Him. What it means to prepare the way is an important part of this stirring lesson.
In this lesson we will focus upon Luke’s account of Jesus as a boy going to the Temple in Jerusalem to talk with experts in the Mosaic Law. As a historian extraordinaire, Luke must have gotten this story directly from Mary. There are some very interesting points and powerful truths that we will dig into from this event.
In part two of our new series on the Gospel of Luke we will dig into a couple of more introductory ideas about the author and the book. Then we will examine the first four verses that are an introduction to the work that addressed to a Roman government official. We will then jump over to the second chapter and study verse 40. We are skipping the story of Christ’s birth so that we can return to it as we get near the Christmas season.
The first three verses of First John chapter four begins the apostle’s discourse on false prophets. If we look at this subject from a Biblical viewpoint, then it is extremely important, especially since we are in the last days. This message may challenge what you think about the ministry of the prophet and the problem we have today with false prophets.
In 1 John 1:1-4 we will investigate the apostle’s eyewitness account of Jesus. By tying together the beginning of First John with the opening verses of John’s Gospel and that of Genesis one we will see how Jesus is God. We will also examine what it means that Jesus is the Son of God. There is some really good stuff in this teaching so don’t miss it.
It’s nostalgia time. We are going back to the first year the podcast came out and doing a short series on what it means to be a radical Christian. Here is a spoiler that will come out in this three part series. Being a radical Christian is only being a Biblical Christian. Listen and you will learn why.
In this lesson on Ephesians 5:21-23 we will learn how we are commanded to submit to one another and then what it means for a wife to properly submit to her husband. This message is very important for our day and age so don’t miss it. You can subscribe for free to this podcast through iTunes, Google Play Music, Spotify, Blubrry, Stitcher and Tunein.
Ephesians 4:4-8 are the verses we will concentrate on in this lesson. In verses 4-6 Paul states that there is only one body, one Spirit, one hope, one Lord and one faith. We will learn what Paul meant by these “one” statements. Then in verses 7-8 we will study the grace that is given to Christ’s disciples and what Paul is talking about when he speaks of Christ descending and ascending. This is a very interesting lesson.
