    The encounter Jesus had with a woman at a Pharisee’s house provides quite an interesting story.

    Jesus At A Pharisee’s House Introduction: I love to read the stories of the people Jesus came across. In those stories we get a glimpse into the mind of God and see what really matters.

    The reason that the church does not achieve as much is not God’s fault, it is our fault of faithlessness. Let us look at serven things faith will do if we just take advantage...

    INTRODUCTION In the scripture read, the disciples were perplexed as to why they could not rebuke the devil and thus heal and restore the boy. Jesus answer was simple—they had a lack of faith.

The odd thing about Jesus’ words in today’s gospel is this: were not answering ...read more

    based on 87 ratings
     | 25,873 views

    While reading this story we are all focused on what the woman does. It is Simon however on whom I would like to put the spotlight: the reality is that we are like the Pharisee, and not like the woman!

    Simon, the Self-righteous Pharisee - sermon on Luke 7: 36-50 - The sinful woman. That is the name the translators of our translation gave to this paragraph in Luke’s gospel. Another title would have been more appropriate however. Maybe something like ‘Simon, the proud Pharisee.’ For the ...read more

     | 14,790 views

    One of the harshest questions Jesus asked was asked of the Pharisees: "How shall you escape Hell?" As much a byword of legalism as they were, we must be careful we don’t fall into the traps that ensnared them.

    OPEN: Down thru the ages, there have been rare occasions when different printings of the Bible have been found to have small errors them · For example in 1653 Christians were upset to find that one Bible which declared: “Know ye not that the UNRIGHTEOUS shall inherit the kingdom of God?” · The ...read more

  • Is He The Christ? Series

    Contributed by Dennis Davidson on Oct 13, 2008
    based on 28 ratings
     | 5,162 views

    If Jesus’ authority to not only interpret the Sabbath but also to work on the Sabbath indeed comes from God, then Jesus is making a messianic claim. This claim opens the way to questions concerning His origins—divine origins. Is He the Christ?

    JOHN 7: 25-36 IS HE THE CHRIST? The force of Jesus’ argument with the authorities seems to impress many in the audience who are either residents of the city or pilgrims in Jerusalem for the Feast of Tabernacles. Thus a shift in subject springs from Jesus’ last answer. If Jesus’ authority to ...read more
