Week 13: More Miracles of Jesus

The five readings this week highlight Jesus’ power to heal the sick. We’ll read how Jesus enabled a blind man to see, caused a paralysed man to walk, restored a demon possessed man, cured a woman with an incurable bleeding problem and brought two dead people back to life.

The Bible tells us that ‘Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever’ (Hebrews 13:8).  So if Jesus had the ability and want to do these things then, He will also reveal His glory and help people put faith in Him today.

Week 12: The Miracles of Jesus

The five readings this week highlight Jesus’ power to overrule the forces of nature.  Changing water into wine, calming the sea, feeding more than five thousand people from a few loaves and fish, walking on water and causing a fig tree to wither.

The Bible tells us that ‘Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever’ (Hebrews 13:8).  So if Jesus had the ability and want to do these things then, He will also reveal His glory and help people put faith in Him today.

Week 10: The Parables of Jesus

Jesus spoke to a wide variety of people.  Some of His listeners were devoted followers, some were arch enemies, some were confused onlookers, some were hurting souls and some, like us, would only read His words centuries later. But all of them could relate to a good story. This week we are going to explore the parables of Jesus, the world’s greatest storyteller.

Week 9: The sermons of Jesus

This Sunday Roy and Pat introduced the coming week’s Essential Jesus Bible readings on The Sermons of Jesus. I’ve listened to a thousand sermons in my lifetime, but to my shame I don’t remember or apply much of them.  The Sermon on the Mount, the Beatitudes, the Seven Woes, boldly predicting the end of the religious establishment of His day, this week we’re going to listen to the words of the World’s Greatest Preacher!

Sermon 1

Week 8: The Beginning Ministry of Jesus

In the next five readings we’ll be examining a transitional period in Jesus’ life where He goes from being an unknown carpenter from Nazareth to a popular preacher and healer who attracted big crowds.  There is vivid detail captured in the Gospel accounts of Jesus’ early ministry.

One key theme that emerges from these early days of Jesus’ ministry is His commitment to finding followers. Throughout the Gospel accounts we see Him giving the simple challenge, ‘Follow me.’
