Colossians 1: 13-29, 23 June 2019

Colossians 1:13-29, June 13, 2019 Review, Preeminence, First Born, Mystery, Mature Once again, “Why Colossians?” Paul wrote this letter to the church of Colossae to challenge them (and us) to a greater devotion to Jesus. There is only one subject in Colossians – Jesus. He writes for the purpose of making clear in great detail Jesus is sovereign over all of creation and the church. In doing so he also warns against any heresies attacking the preeminence of Jesus.  1:9…

Colossians 1:1-18

The Preeminence of Jesus Why Colossians? Paul wrote this letter while in prison to a group of people he had never met who made up a church he did not plant. The church was under pressure or attack to turn away from Jesus due to a number of heresies or a mixture of heresies. So Paul wrote this letter to the church of Colossae to challenge them (and us) to a greater devotion to Jesus. There is only one subject…

Philemon-01-25

Revolutionary Action Asked of Philemon Summary/story of the letter then summary video 6 minutes 39 seconds long . 1-3 A prisoner of Christ Jesus … seven references to Jesus throughout this short letter. No mention of being an apostle of Jesus. He knows Philemon personally. He led him to Christ on one of missionary trips – probably to Ephesus. While Paul was a prisoner in Rome under house arrest he preached there as we learn in Acts 28:30-31. 4-6 Philemon’s…

Mark 15:25-16:20

15:22-32 Crucifixion It was nine in the morning when they crucified Him at Golgotha which is Calvary in Latin. As they were nailing Him to the cross, He said, “Father, forgive them for they do not know what they are doing.” Luke 23:34a As they divided us His clothes and cast lots for them they were fulfilling David’s prophecy in Psalm 22:18 His crime was spelled out in three languages Greek, Latin, and Hebrew THE KING OF THE JEWS. In…

Mark 15:1-37

REVIEW 14:52-65 Kangaroo court. The term kangaroo court did not exist in Jesus’ time, but it would certainly fit as trials were never to occur in a private home, but in a public place where witnesses could be found. Notice how the false testimonies set up ahead of time did not even agree enough for a conviction. As you know two witnesses were required per Deuteronomy 17:6. So the chief priest finally asked Jesus a question (v61) He had to…

Mark 14:26-72

The Hymn, The Arrest, The Trial, Peter’s Denial 14:26 The Hymn they sang. Jesus sang a song with His disciples on His way to be arrested and crucified. He sang a song! What did He sing? The Passover meal always ended with singing three Psalms known as the Hallel, Psalms 116, 117, and 118. The last being Psalm 118. Let’s look at three verses in this Psalm 22 The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone. 23 This…
This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many.

Mark 14:10-26

Review – Three Questions Asked Last Week Q1: How many of you have shared your faith with a stranger? Q2: How many of you have invited someone to church – especially someone who has never been. Q3: How many of you have shared your faith/testimony with a stranger – a lost soul? 14:6-9 Then Jesus spoke. Leave her alone. I believe His voice thundered – at least in my imagination. Jesus acknowledged she had been listening and she came and…
Truly I tell you wherever the gospel is preached throughout the world, what she has done will also be told in memory of her.

Mark 14:1-9

Review – chapter 13 13:8 The Sign of the End of the Age. Troubles on a global scale would seem to signal the end of the age, but Jesus added These are the beginning of birth pangs. 13:14-23 Second half of Tribulation. The first half is described in Matthew 24:9-14 with verse 15 as the transition verse almost identical to Mark 13:14. The sign of the end of the age will be the abomination of desolation. From Daniel and Revelation…
Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.

Resurrection Sunday 2019

Anointed Twice Mark 14:1-9 An anointing of Jesus with nard by a woman who would be remembered wherever the gospel Acts 10:37-38 Peter speaks of God anointing Jesus after His baptism Last Supper Mark 14:22-25 Jesus provides instructions for communion that we follow to this day. This was followed by His arrest, flogging, crucifixion – and burial. Three days later He rose to unbelief. Unbelief/Belief Mark 16:9-13 The unbelief was incredible! Three witnesses, yet the unbelief persisted. Mark 16:14 Jesus…
Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.

Mark 13:1-37

Jesus Foretells The Future Review – Connecting A Few Threads Micah 2:1-2, Mark 7:9-13, 11:16-17, 11:29-30, Matthew 3:7-8 What were the Pharisees and Sadducees truly like? Mark 10:20-22, 12:17, 12:41-44, 12:30 What does it mean to give to God what is God’s? 13:1-2 Jesus foretells the destruction of the temple. Largest stone still visible can be seen in the western wall tunnel. It has an estimated weight of 570 tons (2,000 pounds/ton or 1,140,000 pounds) and is 44.6 feet long,…
