Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!

Mark 10:32-52

Review 10:23-31 Riches do not have the power to help one work or worm his way into heaven. Jesus after saying v25 “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God” He adds v27 “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.” In other words, Grace or Salvation is totally outside the sphere of human capacity.…
Mark 8:34

Mark 8:1-9:1

Review: 7:31-37 If the people in the region where amazed at what Jesus had done for the demon possessed man in chapter 5, here they were overwhelmed with amazement or utterly amazed because here was a man they brought to Jesus who was deaf and dumb, both incredibly real physical problems. These were Gentiles and this is made clear when we look at Matthew 15:30-31 where Gentiles praised the God of Israel because of Jesus. 8:1-9 From Jesus’ words it…
Mark 7:36

Mark 7:1-37

Review Last week I confused two locations at the end of chapter six (v53), the coastal city Genneserat on the NW shore of Sea of Galilee and the region of the Gerasenes on the SW shore of the Sea of Galilee with the cities Gergesa, Gadana. and Geresa shown. 6:53-56 Jesus and His disciples has been in this region before when they visited Capernaum and went throughout Galilee. The people remembered and recognized Jesus and with great caring and charity…
Mark 5:36

Mark 5:1-43

Review 4:21-23 Parable of the Lamp & Obligation Jesus uses the lamp to point out two import spiritual truths to the disciples and to us. They and we are responsible for the sharing of the truth – it must be shared. This parable tells them and tells us the truths revealed are to be shared! Ends with an admonishment in v23, If anyone has ears to hear, let them hear. 4:24-25 In these two short verses we have the concept…
What then shall we say? Is God unjust? Not at all!

Romans 9:1-33

REVIEW: 7:24-25 We need to be rescued from our sins which are leading us directly to death. Who will rescue us? There is only one who will rescue us – Jesus Christ. Why does it take time to complete the rescue to rid the body of sin? Because we knew very little of all corruption or sin we had inside. Jesus and the Holy Spirit knew so we have Philippians 1:6 He who began a good work in you will…
If God is for us who ca be against us?

Romans 8:18-39

REVIEW: The indwelling sin we all have is a tyrant whose dictates we hate and loathe like Paul. Like Paul, we struggle in vain by our own strength. So the problem boils down to his and our inability to win the war against sin. We want to do what is right, but find ourselves doing what we know is wrong. 7:24 So we all cry out in agony how wretched we are. We need to be rescued from our sins…

Romans 5:1-11

Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.

Romans 4:1-12

REVIEW Chapter 3 v1-3-5-7 all questions Paul came up with that he believed he would need to answer from those in Rome, especially Jews v2-4-6-8 all answers to the questions; 3:4 and 3:6 he says Certainly not! or May it never be! showing great disgust at these particular questions he expects to receive. v9 States all of us, past, present, future are all under sin, that we are all innately sinful. v10-18 In nine verses Paul shows fourteen sins (categories)…
Yet God freely and graciously declares that we are righteous.

Romans 3:1-31

REVIEW 2:25 You become effectively a Gentile if you do not believe. 2:28-29 Purpose of circumcision – Genesis 17:9-11 Then God said to Abraham, “As for you, you must keep my covenant, you and your descendants after you for the generations to come. This is my covenant with you and your descendants after you, the covenant you are to keep: Every male among you shall be circumcised. You are to undergo circumcision, and it will be the sign of the…
God's kindness is intended to lead you to repentance. Romans 2:4

Romans 2:1-16

Hypocrisy Then Jew or Gentile, ‘Do You Know Jesus?’ Review Paul’s wrote to the church in Rome to instruct them in the faith as no Apostle done as none had visited there. He wanted to tell them the truth about Jesus just as he had in Galatia, Thessalonica, and Corinth followed by letters of additional details, knowledge, and application. 1:1-9 Eight times Paul mentions Jesus or God’s son in the first nine verses and the gospel twice (v1 and v9).…
