After instituting the Lord’s supper, Jesus spoke to His disciples words of comfort and warning to help them through the difficult time they were about to face, saying, “Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful” (John 14:1, 27).  All they had to do was ask, and it would be done […]

Luke 22 – “Do this in remembrance of Me”

While Judas was plotting to betray Jesus, Peter and John were preparing to observe the Passover with Him (Luke 22:1-13).  There Jesus gave all the apostles some bread and a cup to eat and drink “in remembrance of Me,” along with telling them that one of them would betray Him (22:14-23).  When the apostles disputed […]

November 20, 2014

Upon leaving the temple Jesus told His disciples, “Do you not see all these things? Truly I say to you, not one stone here will be left upon another, which will not be torn down.”  They later said to Him, “Tell us, when will these things happen, and what will be the sign of Your […]

Then […]

Luke 17-18 – “your faith”

John 11 – “Lazarus, come forth!”

October 30, 2014

Jesus’ friend Lazarus – Mary and Martha’s brother – became sick.  Jesus wanted to go back to Judea, but the disciples questioned Him because the Jews there wanted to stone Him.  When He said Lazarus was dead and He was going to “awaken” him, Thomas said to them, “Let us also go, so that we […]

Matthew 19-20 – “All cannot accept this”

October 24, 2014

At times “large crowds followed” Jesus (Matthew 19:2), but it was not because He catered to whatever was pleasing to them.  When the Pharisees questioned Jesus about divorce “for any reason at all” (which is basically how it is in our society today), He said that “from the beginning” God designed a man and woman […]
