WE CONCLUDE our study of the gospels this week with the accounts of the Resurrection. We discuss the gospel accounts of the encounter at the empty tomb and why the apparent contradictions are not contradictions at all, the significance of the first witnesses to the risen Christ being women, and Peter’s sermon on Pentecost, the first post-Resurrection sermon in the history of Christianity.

TODAY WE recount the final hours of Jesus’ life on Earth. We discuss the weakness of Pilate, the spiritual forces behind the priests and scribes, and the supernatural effects of the moment that Jesus gave up his spirit.
MARRIAGE AND divorce can be sensitive topics, so it’s no wonder the scribes and Pharisees tried to use them to trip up Jesus. As with every encounter between them, however, Jesus turned the tables and discredited his antagonists.
We discuss the request by James and John to sit at Jesus’ right hand in his kingdom, the cursing of the fig tree, Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem, and several well-known parables, including the rich young ruler, the laborers in the vineyard, and the parable of the tenants.
JESUS TAKES command of the enemy’s holy mountain, demonstrating his authority through the Transfiguration on Mount Hermon–the place where the Watchers descended and initiated their plan to corrupt humanity in the days of Noah’s great-great-grandfather Jared.
We also explore several import aspects of Bible doctrine: The hierarchy of the entities in the supernatural realm, the long war between Yahweh and Ba’al (which continues today), and scriptural support for the concept of guardian angels.
