We are now fully immersed in Christ’s resurrection. There are two accounts that we will spend some time studying in this lesson. The first is the role some prominent women played in announcing our Lord’s resurrection. And second, how the resurrected Savior revealed Himself to two disciples. This is a wonderful portion of Scripture to study.
Jesus is preaching at the self-righteous Pharisees who had been mocking Him. He did this out of genuine love for them that they might repent and be saved. The Lord brings out some powerful truths that will stir your soul and challenge your mind. At the end of the lesson we will begin looking at the account of Lazarus and the rich man, their death and judgment.
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 First John 4:4-8 there are two topics that we will examine. The first is a continuation of the subject of our last lesson, which was on John’s teaching about false prophets. The second topic is love, which was probably John’s favorite subject to teach and write on. There’s some good meat at this table, so pull up a chair dig in.
The last three verses of First John chapter two are full of many necessary truths for those who are true followers of Jesus. We will learn what John means by our need to have a true anointing of the Holy Spirit to remain faithful to God. The subject of what it means to be righteous will also be addressed. Don’t miss this lesson.
In this portion of Scripture John continues his discourse on false teachers. The serious nature of this threat against the true church is real and this is why the apostle takes so much time to press this thought home. Integral to standing against deception is to abide in Christ. Don’t miss this encouraging message.
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.
The great theme of Ephesians 3:12-15 is that all true followers of Jesus are given access to God’s throne through prayer. Faith is the means by which we can approach God and be pleasing to Him. It’s this same faith that takes children of the world that are separated from God to become adopted children of God. This message will stir your soul.
James 2:5-10 continues James’ teaching on the subject of favoritism. The reason why James wrote on this subject was to bring us to verse eight where he introduces the Royal Law, which is to love others as we want to be loved. So all he has to write on favoritism is really to teach us how love better. This teaching could really benefit your life.
James 1:5-8 are the verses we will study in this podcast. The three main subjects of these four verses focus upon our need for wisdom to live the victorious Christian life, how faith is an integral part of this and how being double-minded is ruinous. This is an interesting and challenging lesson so don’t miss it.
