Bible Land Passages

Come visit with us on Wednesday nights as we watch together and discuss the WVBS video “Bible Land Passages.”  This past Wednesday, we viewed Passage 1 – Jerusalem:  The Unforgettable City. Today’s city, along with its archeology, provides us with a window into the past and a glimpse of its former greatness.  But the royal …

A “Fearful Thing”

Under the Law of Moses, punishment for violation of its statutes was ordained to be swift and just.  The children of Israel were expected to be devoted to God and His laws.  After all, Jehovah had plainly demonstrated His existence through His miraculous provision.  He had delivered the children of Israel from Egyptian bondage and …

Attitudes Needed in Congregational Work

The great commission is recorded in Matt 28:18-20 and Mk 16:15-16.  The church of our Lord has been commissioned by Jesus to take the gospel to the whole world.  We evidently have a lot of work to do.  Thankfully, God has provided us with the tools we need to accomplish this great work.  One of …

Christ’s Teaching on Murder and Anger Matt 5:21-26

Last week we discussed Matt 5:17-20, where Jesus taught the necessity of exceeding the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees.  The scribes and Pharisees had supplanted God’s word through their oral tradition and commentary.  Jesus said that, unless we exceed their righteousness, we can’t enter the Kingdom of Heaven.  We accomplish that by reverencing His …

Jesus and the Law – Matthew 5:17-20

In previous posts, we have been looking at the teachings of Jesus regarding the character and blessedness of the citizens of His kingdom (Matt 5:3-12).  In the following verses (Matt 5:13-16), Jesus spoke of the influence Christians should have on the world; We are the salt of the earth (we must have both a seasoning …

The Beatitudes – Part 3

In the last two posts, we have been studying the “beatitudes” and have considered 7 of the eight presented by Jesus.  We believe the beatitudes were spoken by our Lord very early in His earthly ministry and were part of His sermon on the mount, recorded for us in Matthew chapters 5-7.  In our study, we have been …

The Beatitudes – Part 2

We have been examining the teachings of Jesus more closely so we might “adorn” His doctrine.  If we are going to wear the name of Christ (“Christian”), we ought to believe His teachings, obey them, and advocate them.  Otherwise, we are just shallow hypocrites playing religious games. We began looking at the Beatitudes of Matthew 5 last …
