    Jesus Has Authority Over Sinners
    At this time, there was a lot of tension among the religious rulers of the day. They had seen Jesus cast out demons and heal a leper. Then, they see Him tell a lame man his sins have been forgiven and then tell him to get up and walk. Now He calls a tax collector to be one of his disciples and then goes to eat with a house full of tax collectors and other “undesirables”. The tension comes about because Jesus’ actions are forcing them to make a decision about Him that contradicts all their traditions and (oral) laws. Luke 5: 27-31; Luke 18: 10-14; Matthew 9:13, Mark 2: 16 (NKJV)

    Jesus Heals A Leper
    The healing of the leper is important for several reasons. The Bible outlined in Leviticus 13 the law concerning people with leprosy. Leviticus 14 tells us the ritual for cleansing a healed leper. But, until Luke 5: 12, no Jewish leper had ever been healed. Give a listen as Bro. Mike explains the significance of this healing and how it further gives evidence of Jesus as the Messiah and Son of God. Luke 5: 12-16 (NKJV) Parallel verses: Matthew 8: 1-4; Mark 1: 40-45

    Interpretations Lead to Expectations
    The Jews interpreted the scriptures as them being on the inside track with God and everyone else was on the outside. This interpretation led them to the expectation that the Messiah would come and conquer their enemies (the Romans) and make them a ruling kingdom here on earth. Are your interpretations and expectations of the Messiah aligned with God’s Word? Luke 4: 14-30; Isaiah 61: 1-2; Isaiah 58: 6; Ephesians 1: 7 (NKJV)

    Jesus-The Messiah
    Jesus began his ministry healing thousands and telling his followers that the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand. The real pivot point in his ministry was in Matthew 12:22 when he healed the blind and mute man by casting out the demon possessing him. This had never been done before and it was at this point that people began to recognize him as the Messiah. Matthew 4:17; Mark 1: 14b-15; Luke 4:14b-15; 1 Corinthians 15: 1-4; Isaiah 11: 1-2 (KJV)

    Children can bring great joy to our lives. We hope that will not make the same mistakes we did; but when they do make mistakes, we hope that we have taught (modeled) how to repent and ask for forgiveness. Our greatest joy is seeing our children (grandchildren) come to know Jesus as their Savior and accept the gift of Salvation. 3John 1:4 (NKJV)

    God Came for The Whole World
    Jesus and his disciples begin to baptize believers and John the Baptist’s followers question John about their authority to do so. John says that Jesus’ power was given to Him from Heaven and that He must increase, and that John must decrease. He knew that his ministry was coming to an end as Jesus’ ministry was just beginning. Later we see Jesus in Samaria speaking to a Samaritan women at Jacob’s well. He speaks to her not only of her sin in her personal life, but also of the inaccuracies of her religious and cultural beliefs about the Messiah. John 3:22-John 4:30; Isaiah 11: 1-5 (NKJV) (Tablet video unavailable due to technical difficulties.)

    You Must Be Born Again
    Nicodemus approached Jesus one night to learn more about Him. Jesus told him that the only way to get to Heaven was to be born again. The first century Jews were no stranger to the phrase “born again”, but it had different meanings to them and there were six ways to be born again for the Jews. However, none of them included the spiritual birth of which Jesus spoke. John 2: 23-3:21; 1 John 4:6; Numbers 21:4-9 (NKJV)
