The first account in Luke chapter 19 is about the conversion of Zacchaeus, a chief tax collector. In this true story we see clear evidence that salvation broke into his life by the repentance that was clearly demonstrated. This is the story of the rich man who said “Yes” to Jesus.
There are two events that we will examine in this lesson. The first is when some Pharisees warned Jesus that Herod wanted to kill Him. The second is a dinner Jesus attended at a prominent Pharisee’s home where the Lord healed a man with dropsy and taught on humility. There are some very challenging truths that will be dealt with in this study.
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.
There are two historical accounts we will look at in this study and learn how they apply to our lives today. The first is the raising from the dead Jairus’ daughter and the second is when Jesus sent out the 12 apostles to heal the sick, cast out devils and preach the Good News of the Kingdom of God.
The historical account we will examine in this lesson is about the healing of a paralytic man. At this preaching event the Pharisees and experts in the Mosaic Law came in judgment of Jesus. Of course, Jesus rises to the occasion by healing the paralytic and silencing the religious rulers with a very simple, yet logical argument. This is a great story to teach about.
In this lesson we will see a very different response to the preaching and ministry of Jesus from the people of Capernaum to those of Nazareth. The people of Capernaum were very receptive to Jesus, and as a result, they saw the Lord perform some wonderful miracles. You will be encouraged by this lesson.
We will look at two stories today on our study of the Gospel of John. The first is at the end of chapter four which is about a nobleman that asks Jesus to heal his son. The second takes up all of chapter five, but we will only get through verse sixteen today. This is about Jesus healing a man who was lame for 38 years and the confrontation with the religious Jews that comes out of this miracle. This is a very interesting lesson and there will be some points to challenge your faith.
