PAUL RETURNS to Jerusalem in this week’s study, in spite of warnings from believers from Asia to Judea that he would be arrested and possibly killed. But Paul already knew that.
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.
JESUS IS in Jerusalem and, knowing that his time is short, begins to speak of his return, both directly and in parables.
MARRIAGE AND divorce are sensitive topics, so it’s no wonder the scribes and Pharisees tried to use them to trip up Jesus.
THE TROUBLES of this world can be a huge obstacle to following Christ. Money, family, social status, possessions, and even religious tradition can distract us from prioritizing our lives in the proper order.
