THE BALANCE between grace and Law is the focus of this week’s New Testament study. We discuss the Council of Jerusalem, and then we read Paul’s letter to the Galatians, who had apparently come under the influence of Judaizers.
MARRIAGE AND divorce are sensitive topics, so it’s no wonder the scribes and Pharisees tried to use them to trip up Jesus.
JESUS TAKES command of the enemy’s holy mountain, demonstrating his authority through the Transfiguration on Mount Hermon, the site of the Watchers’ descent.
OUR NEW TESTAMENT study this week clearly illustrates the viewpoints of the gospel writers with parallel accounts of several episodes from the ministry of Jesus.
TODAY WE encounter the Devil as Jesus is led into the desert for 40 days and then tempted — or, more accurately, tested. Thankfully, Jesus resisted the snares of physical gratification (bread), public acclaim, and earthly power.
