Matthew, Mark, Luke & John

            Of all the supernatural reports concerning Jesus the Messiah, the most impressive would have to be his resurrection from the grave after being killed in the most public and brutal way ever recorded in history. God's promise to the human race for deliverance from all guilt and death was made good at the cross and then made evident at Jesus' resurrection. To those who knew Jesus personally, the significance of that incredible event spawned the desire to compile a thorough report of everything Jesus said and did leading up to that point in history. While many reports were released in the first century, we have preserved for us today the very best in existence. The first 4 books of the New Testament are collectively known as "The Gospels (aka) The Good News" and each report was carefully put together by the individual and then published around 60 AD with subtle yet notable differences and perspectives unique to the observer. Our current series in progress is a synchronized study of the reports provided by all 4 of these men.

Matthew, Mark, Luke & John: Session 42

            Today, some believe that Jesus never said he was God or even claimed equality with God. The religious leaders who had Jesus crucified would say otherwise. In this session, Jesus goes to Jerusalem to attend the Feast of Dedication (Hanukkah) where he is accused of such a blasphemy. He speaks of the saved as sheep who hear his voice, who's security is in the hands of the shepherd and the hands of the Father. Then Jesus speaks of the straight gate to the fold and the coming Kingdom of God upon the earth where many will see Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and all the prophets as people from the east, west, north and south come to sit down and take part in the Kingdom.

Matthew, Mark, Luke & John: Session 41

            In this session, Jesus once again reminds us of how much he hates religious hypocrisy. He initiates a call to national repentance, warning Israel in a parable (of a fruitless fig tree) that they will be cut down and out if they don't repent of their refusal to believe the truth. He heals a woman in a synagogue who had been demonically crippled for 18 years and then he gets attacked by the synagogue leader for doing it on the Sabbath. Jesus then reminds them of the parables of the mustard seed and the leaven: two parables that are often misinterpreted in most of our study Bibles.
