Matthew 26:1-16: Plotting and Anointing

In this passage we see two contrasting understandings of who Jesus is and these result in two very different actions toward him. These understandings are representative of how all people view Jesus, in one of these two ways. Which view do you hold?

Matthew 25:31-46: The Ultimate Divide

What is the last thing Jesus emphasizes in His final sermon before going to the cross to die? He said that when He comes again, he will separate and judge all the people’s of the earth into two categories: the righteous and the wicked. But the Bible tells us that we all begin in the category of the wicked, so how can be move to become righteous?

Matthew 24:45 – 25:30: Kingdom Capitalism

Any financial investor can tell you that there is no such thing as a sure investment. Something can always go wrong. But what if there were a sure-fire investment that could not fail. In that case, a person would be a fool not to take advantage of the opportunity. In Matthew 24-25, Jesus tells us of a certain investment that is guaranteed by the all-knowing and all-powerful God – it cannot fail.

Matthew 24:32-44: Figs and Faithfulness

Jesus, when speaking about His future return to earth, tells us that there is nothing left that must happen before He returns. Therefore, His followers should be ready at all times because they realize He could return at any time. How can you get ready? Jesus provides the answer.

Matthew 24:15–31: When Jesus Returns

When asked by His disciples about the fall of Jerusalem and the end of the World, Jesus answers. He gives both some general and some specific statements. But He also tells His disciples the purpose for this information.  This passage gives many important teachings and reminders to all who will take the time to consider it.

Matthew 24:1-14: What Does the Future Hold?

Many people want to know what the future holds. The disciples were no different and they asked Jesus what was coming in the near and distant future. Jesus answered, but perhaps not in the way they expected. In the process, Jesus makes several prophecies or predictions and gives much hope for those who will listen.

Matthew 23:22-39: Woe to the Pharisees (Part 2)

God cares both what we do and the source from which our actions spring. In this passage, Jesus gives further oracles of condemnation for the religious leaders who looked good on the outside but did not love God on the inside. But this was not just a problem for the religious leaders back then, we do not follow God inside and outside like we should either. But Jesus gives us hope and a remedy.

Matthew 22:34-46: The Greatest Commandment and the Question of the Messiah

The Jewish people were given 613 laws from God. The religious leaders seek to trick Jesus by asking him which of those laws was the greatest. But Jesus’ response is not what they expected and they are unable to argue with his response. He then turns the tables on them with his own question which is about the Messiah. What is the greatest commandment and who is the Messiah? Hear how Jesus answers these two vitally important questions for us.
