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.

            In this session, religious leaders follow Jesus around hoping to catch him saying something that they can use to arrest him. Meanwhile, Jesus warns his 70 new disciples against the hypocrisy of the Pharisees and builds up their courage against death threats of religious persecution. He comforts them with the promise of God's continual care, even in their physical deaths while driving their focus toward their treasures in Heaven. He also gives several parables which admonish readiness and continual watchfulness for his imminent return.
