The Suffering Servant19/01/2020 Duración: 39min
This chapter is a prophecy about Jesus – in particular, it is about His suffering on the cross. This is an important chapter because of the prophecy showing that God knew what would happen. It is also important in explaining why and how Jesus made His sacrifice.
A City Set on a Hill19/01/2020 Duración: 31min
In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus described His disciples as “a city set on a hill.” Cities were often built on hills and raised areas because there were benefits to doing this. Jesus’ disciples are like this – there are benefits of being like the city on a hill, but there are also challenges.
What the Bible Teaches about Suicide12/01/2020 Duración: 44min
Suicide is the act in which one intentionally kills himself – not an accident, not sacrificing one’s life, not ending treatment for a terminal illness. Sadly, this is a growing problem in the U.S. There is not a specific passage in the Bible that explicitly states that suicide is either wrong or justifiable. We need to consider principles that relate to this issue. It is a sensitive topic, but we need to understand what the Bible says that relates to this.
A Model of Personal Evangelism12/01/2020 Duración: 29min
In this chapter, Jesus spoke with a woman at a well in Samaria. As a result of this conversation, she came know that He was the Messiah (v. 25-26), she told others about Jesus (v. 28-29), and many believed in Him (v. 41-42). We often wonder how to go about doing “personal evangelism.” This chapter provides a model. Jesus’ interaction with this woman gives us insight as to how we might go about teaching the lost today.
Jeremiah and the Parable of the Sower05/01/2020 Duración: 35min
One of the more well-known parables of Jesus is the parable of the sower. It is a simple parable – its basic point can be explained quickly, yet it teaches an important lesson. It is also one we can build upon to draw out other points. In this lesson, we are going to consider this parable and build upon it with lessons learned from Jeremiah.
A Call for Repentance29/12/2019 Duración: 27min
This lesson examines a parable about two sons and the parallels to how God deals with us through the gospel
What Are Our Priorities?29/12/2019 Duración: 32min
Our lives are shaped by our priorities. Time, energy, and resources are limited; therefore, we spend them on what is important to us. What should be most important to us? The Bible shows us what our highest priorities should be. We need to see what the Bible says and examine our lives to see if our priorities are what they ought to be.
What Does the Bible Say about Christmas?22/12/2019 Duración: 39min
Christmas is one of two main “Christian” religious holidays (the other is Easter). It is so common that people take it for granted and never give a second thought about it. But what does the Bible actually say about Christmas? Is it part of our service to God or something else?
Sowing and Reaping22/12/2019 Duración: 40min
The Bible teaches that we will reap what we sow. Our actions, attitudes, thoughts, decisions, etc. have consequences. We need to recognize this and seriously consider what we ought to be doing. So let us consider various passages that talk about SOWING and REAPING – the good and the bad.
God’s Plan for You15/12/2019 Duración: 32min
This verse is a favorite for many people. Yet it is important to note the context – the restoration of the Jews from Babylon after 70 years in captivity (v. 10, 14). But many take this verse, apply it to their lives, and assume that God must have a plan for every detail (jobs, homes, families, hardships, etc.). God does have a plan for you (though not the one mentioned in our text). This plan is shown in the Bible.
