John 4

John 4 Jesus and the twelve disciples were by the Jordan River preaching and baptizing and making disciples of the people, and the Pharisees became more jealous of him then they were of John Baptist. To avoid the Jerusalem area Pharisees for a time, Jesus then left to go to Galilee through Samaria. John 4:1 When […]

John 2 The third day after Nathanael was called, the wedding feast miracle was performed at Cana John 2:1 And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there: 2:2 And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage. 2:3 And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus […]

John 1

John 1 The Word [Logos] was present at creation with the member of the Elohim [Mighty Ones] family who became God the Father. In the beginning the two members of the Elohim family said: Genesis 1:26 And God [Elohim, Mighty Ones] said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word [the Word (Spokesman) was an […]

They found the stone already […]

Luke 23

Luke 23 The priests lead Jesus to a hearing before the Roman governor Luke 23:1 And the whole multitude of them arose, and led him unto Pilate. There they outright lie, as well as make accusations regarding their beliefs. 23:2 And they began to accuse him, saying, We found this fellow perverting the nation, and […]

Luke 22

Luke 22 The people called Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread, simply Passover; just as today we say, “The Feast of Tabernacles” without mentioning The Feast of the Eighth Day separately; everyone assuming that we all understand that we mean to include the Eighth Day in the phrase Feast of Tabernacles. Luke 22:1 Now the […]

Luke 21

Luke 21 In the example of the widow’s mite, Jesus points out that we are not to judge by the seeing of our eyes, but we are to judge justly according to the truth, since appearances are often deceiving. Luke 21:1 And he looked up, and saw the rich men casting their gifts into the treasury. 21:2 […]

Luke 19 – 20

Luke 19 Jesus dines with Zacchaeus the chief of the tax collectors around Jericho Luke 19:1 And Jesus entered and passed through Jericho. 19:2 And, behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus, which was the chief among the publicans, and he was rich. 19:3 And he sought to see Jesus who he was; and could not […]

Luke 17 – 18

Luke 17 Those who persecute the faithful, will in their proper time receive terrible retribution from the Great and Mighty God who parted the Red Sea. The execution of such justice belongs to God and we are not to take matters into our own hands. We are to back off from before the anger of […]

Luke 15 – 16

Luke 15 Jesus Christ will reject all those who think themselves spiritually rich and in need of nothing, thinking they know it all refusing listen to anyone not even listening to the Word of God;  instead God will accept the worst sort of ordinary sinners who are open to sincere repentance and the things of God, […]

Luke 13 – 14

Luke 13 James 2:10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. If we compromise with even one point of God’s Word we have broken the [whole] law. ALL have sinned and ALL need to sincerely repent and turn to an intensive effort to internalize the […]

Acts 27 – 28

Acts 27 Finally Paul takes ship to begin his journey to Rome as a prisoner.

Luke 11 – 12

Luke 11 Christ teaches us how to pray Jesus teaches people to pray short meaningful prayers, NOT lengthy prayers to impress others, and NOT empty “putting in time to fill up an hour or more” prayers. The prayers of men recorded in the Bible are almost all very short and very effective. The effectiveness of […]

Luke 9 – 10

Luke 9 Jesus gave the twelve special disciples chosen to be apostles [which included Judas] power over demons and to heal the sick and instructed then NOT to build up earthly wealth but to live frugally off the Gospel.  Obviously those who chose to live like fabulously wealthy oil potentates are not faithful to Jesus […]

Luke 7 – 8

Luke 7 The faith of the centurion Luke 7:1 Now when he had ended all his sayings in the audience of the people, he entered into Capernaum. 7:2 And a certain centurion’s servant, who was dear unto him, was sick, and ready to die. 7:3 And when he heard of Jesus, he sent unto him […]

Luke 3 – 4

Luke 3 Pontius Pilate was the fifth Prefect of the Roman province of Judaea, from AD 26–36. Tiberius was emperor from 12 A.D. to 37 A.D., his fifteenth year being 27 A.D. Therefore John Baptist began his ministry in the spring of 27 A.D. Luke  3:1 Now in the fifteenth year of the reign of […]

Luke 2

Luke 2 The birth of Jesus the Christ [Hebrew: Yeshua; meaning Salvation] Luke 2:1 And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed. 2:2 (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) 2:3 And all went to […]

Luke 1

Introduction Luke 1 focuses on the advent and mission of John Baptist as the Elijah preparing the way for the coming of the physical Messiah, by calling all to sincere repentance.  John Baptist had the attitude, zeal, dedication and courage of Elijah, and prepared the way for the coming of Christ in the flesh, to teach […]

Mark 15 – 16

Mark 15 After Jesus had claimed to be the Messiah, the priests bound him and took him to the governor Mark 15:1 And straightway in the morning the chief priests held a consultation with the elders and scribes and the whole council [the Sanhedrin; the Seventy], and bound Jesus, and carried him away, and delivered […]

Mark 13 – 14

Mark 13 Mark 13 is the counterpart to Matthew 24. Jesus prophesies that the temple would be destroyed, and the physical temple was destroyed by the Roman Prince Titus about 70 A.D. Mark 13:1 And as he went out of the temple [to go the Mount of Olives Matthew 24], one of his disciples saith unto him, Master, see what […]

Mark 11 – 12

Mark 11 The entry of Christ into Jerusalem before the Passover This was a fore-type of an even greater entry of Christ into Jerusalem when Christ comes WITH his saints to deliver all Israel and all humanity from the madness of rebellion against the only way to peace and life. In Israel it was customary […]

Mark 9 [sdm_download id=”21196″ fancy=”1″ color=”blue”] The light of God’s Spirit, and the salt of zeal for God and his Word See also  107: God The Light of Truth Let us cast off our lukewarmness for the practical application of the Word of God, and let us be salted with zeal for God and his will; […]

Mark 7 – 8

Mark 7 The traditions of men versus the commandments of God Mark 7:1 Then came together unto him the Pharisees, and certain of the scribes, which came from Jerusalem. 7:2 And when they saw some of his disciples eat bread with defiled, that is to say, with unwashen, hands, they found fault. 7:3 For the […]

Mark 5 – 6

Mark 5 Mark 5:1 And they came over unto the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes. Now after the lack of faith shown during the storm on the sea, Jesus was provided an opportunity to demonstrate that he had power over whole legions of demons. This would have helped to […]

Mark 3 – 4

Mark 3 It is not a certainty that this was in Capernaum, since in Capernaum they were used to him healing on the Sabbath. Rather this appears to be somewhat later in Jerusalem, and that Jesus was there with the doctors of the law who had formerly been his teachers. A good part of the animosity […]

Mark 1 – 2

Mark 1 The Gospel of Mark narrates the Ministry of Jesus from his baptism by John the Baptist to his death and resurrection. It focuses particularly on the last week of his life (chapters 11–16) in Jerusalem. The gospel of Jesus Christ is the Gospel that Christ taught; therefore in its broadest meaning the full […]

Matthew 27 – 28

Matthew 27 The chief priests and elders sent Jesus bound to the Roman governor Notice that it was the established Church of God of that day that rejected Christ; just like it is today’s corporate Ekklesia which rejects any zeal to keep God’s Word. How can I say that? Because they draw near to him with […]
