Matthew 20:29 – 21:11: The Triumphal Entry

In this passage, we find one of the greatest moments in human history. Jesus is presented to his people and to the city of Jerusalem as their Messiah and King. Celebration begins and the enthusiastic crowds accompany him and his disciples into the city. But all is not as it appears.

Matthew 20:17-34: True Christian Service

Why did Jesus come to earth and how does His Kingdom operate? These are the very question that Jesus answers for His disciples in Matthew 20. While they were wondering about power and authority, Jesus talked about service and then He showed them what He meant.

Matthew 19:29-30: What the Rich Can’t Afford?

“What must I do to get eternal life?” There are many ways to answer that question. But when a rich man comes to Jesus with that question, he receives a surprising answer. Jesus’ response is a great challenge not only for the rich man but also for us.

Matthew 19:9-15: Marriage, Celibacy and Children

What was Jesus’ view of marriage? What about Singleness? Oh, and what about children – their place and importance? Thankfully, we do not need to guess. Rather, Jesus speaks to all of these important topics in just a few short verses. Yet, He does so in such a way that the people who heard Him were very surprised by what He had to say. Just as in His day, what Jesus taught on these issues remains counter-cultural still.

Matthew 19:1-12: Marriage and Divorce

It might surprise people to know that some of the reasons and allowances for divorce in Jesus’ day are very similar to our society’s view in the modern day. In this passage, the religious leaders try to catch Jesus by giving Him a trick question on a difficult topic – divorce. But Jesus does not fall for their ploy, rather, He uses the opportunity to clearly explain God’s original purpose and design for marriage.

Romans 14:1 – 15:7: Loving Christians When We Disagree

How can Christians love one another when we disagree about a matter that is not specifically mentioned in the Bible? How can we still fight for unity in a church and love for individual Christians when we hold different views. This is not a new problem. In fact, Paul spends more than 10% of his letter to the Romans dealing with this very question. What he says is vitally important for the current situation of the church.

Romans 13:1-4: The Duty and Limitations of Government

What is the role of human government and how are Christians to respond to human government? Romans 13 is a familiar passage on these topics but it is also a passage that is often misunderstood. Join us as we consider God’s defined role for human government as well as how Christians should respond to government and God.

Matthew 18:15-35: Confrontation and Forgiveness

How should Christians confront those who have sinned against them? Can a Christian every withhold forgiveness from another person? These important questions are considered in Matthew 18 as Jesus instructs His followers how the church is to act in these challenging circumstances.

Matthew 18:10-14: Guardian Angels, A Lost Verse and a Lost Sheep

This is a fascinating passage. According to some, it teaches the idea that each of us has a guardian angel watching over us. But in most modern translations, it also has a verse missing. Finally, Jesus uses a familiar illustration but with a slightly different point for his hearers. Join us as we find out how these three items fit together.
