Sermon On The Mount: Riches, Food, Laughter & Popularity

Matthew, Mark, Luke & John: Session 11

            If money, food, laughter and popularity have always been easy for you, then you're headed for disappointment. In Luke's record of the Sermon On The Mount, Jesus even went so far to say that the exact opposite is true for those who are currently poor, hungry, sad or rejected. Jesus' perspective was eternal and the logic behind his reasoning was so impressive that Luke's record of the Sermon focused primarily on this single point. Matthew's record is much more exhaustive, which we'll cover in future sessions. But for now, we'll single out Luke's record for this study. We'll study a subtle difference between the phrases "Kingdom Of God" and "Kingdom Of Heaven" and we'll also get into the famous passage from which we get the phrase, "The Blind Leading The Blind."

Jesus Christ: Lord Of The Sabbath

Matthew, Mark, Luke & John: Session 10

            This is a short and sweet little study, nothing special except for the great massive throng of people that show up at the end to get healed. Also it's a lot of fun watching Jesus purposefully spring a "Sabbath Trap" that the Pharisees had tried to lay out for him. I can only imagine what the Pharisees must have thought when they heard Jesus declare that "the Son of Man is Lord even of the Sabbath".
