Matthew 4:12-25

Tap or click image to view the video

Hey Gang,

We pick up in the Book of Matthew as Jesus begins to surround Himself with super qualified, righteous faithful men...NOT! But how cool for us that when Jesus gives the call to “follow me”, we can look to the example of the imperfect and ignorant apostles answering that call. You mean I might be able to serve as well? You bet! He will teach us to be “fishers of men."

After that we get to the very introduction of the ministry of Jesus in Galilee, and get a better understanding of why He began there, and how it impacted that part of Israel. Matthew 4:12-25. See you!

Hey Gang,

After my teaching debacle last Tuesday, trying to explain the history of the Pharisees, Sadducees and Levites, I try to sort it all out for you. In fact, I found something really cool that I didn’t know before that I think you might enjoy!

After that, we will cover the 40 days that Jesus spent in the desert fasting, and being tempted three times by Satan. Matthew 4:1-11. Blessings!

Matthew Chapter 3

Tap or click image to watch the video

Hey Gang,

The world we live in right now makes a big deal about how people identify themselves. But did you know that the Scripture also makes a big deal about our identification? And furthermore, did you know that all of our identification centers around the baptism of Christ, and our being baptized into Him?

This is a really fascinating concept and I am so grateful that we get to dive into (no pun intended!) the baptism of Jesus, and what it means for us.

Matthew Chapter 2

Tap or click image to view video

Hey Gang,

It's the second chapter of the Gospel of Matthew this time around. We read about the wise men from the East, King Herod's evil plan, the Star (what was it?), the escape to Egypt and the return to return to Nazareth where Jesus will grow up. Lots of Old Testament Scriptures are quoted by Matthew to prove that Jesus is indeed the promised King. Good stuff!

Matthew 1:18-25

Hey Gang,

In our second look at the first chapter of the Gospel of Matthew, an angel announces to young Mary's husband Joseph that a very special child would be born in fulfillment of Isaiah's prophecy of a child called Immanuel, "God with us." The angel said, "He is to be named Jesus because He will save His people from their sins."

We are covering Matthew 1:18-25.

Matthew 1:1-17

Click or tap image to watch video

Hey Gang,

SUPER excited to get into the first chapter of Matthew with you all. At first glance it looks like “Oh, no--a genealogy? Gotta be boring." However, as is often the case with the Bible, there is a lot more going on here than a mere genealogy! In fact, I will be so bold as to claim that not only is this section of Matthew the most important part of the book in regards to the proof of who Jesus claimed to be, but it also makes a HUGE statement about the veracity of Scripture. We are looking at a controversy that some have thought shows a contradiction in the Bible, when in fact it obliterates any resistance to the majestic, infallible truths it contains.

We are covering Matthew 1:1-17.

See you there!

Intro to Matthew

Hey Gang!

It has been a long five weeks or so since we have gathered on a Tuesday night. But now we kick with a whole new series on the Book of Matthew!

We will be taking the “long way” through the book -- maybe even year. I am super excited about this. It has been six and a half years since we have studied in one of the Gospels, and I am really looking forward to seeing all of our “old friends from the New Testament”!

This is going to be so good because it’s all about Jesus!

Nehemiah 13

Click or tap image to view video

Hey Gang,

We finish our study of the Ezra/Nehemiah scroll. And I am absolutely loving what I have found out! I think you will really enjoy it. We cover Nehemiah chapter 13, but also take quick drive through the book of Malachi as well.

And lastly, I share the “Gospel of Larry Dobbs.” Larry was a naturalist lecturer on a trip we took to Antartica. And I think you will find his take on the state of the world really interesting in the light of how the Book of Nehemiah ends.

Nehemiah 10-12

Click or tap image to watch video

Hey Gang!

We take a dive into Nehemiah 10-12.

We find some wonderful promises from the Jews in Jerusalem to God. But it’s a bit like reading Peanuts! Remember Lucy encouraging Charlie Brown to come take a shot at the football? He’s thinking “Oh! This time FOR SURE she won’t pull the ball away.” I am reminded of an old 80’s song with the line, “You make me promises, promises.”

But what does it tell us about ourselves and OUR lives lived out before God? What does it tell us about HIM?

Nehemiah 8 and 9

Hey Gang,

We are back to Nehemiah this week, chapters 8 and 9. This is a great portion of Scripture where the people discover the joy of God’s Word, and allow it to impact their lives. So watch and let God’s Word impact YOUR life! We have a brief discussion on “world view” and see why the Biblical world view rocks!
