Believe in Him or Not

September 2nd, 2015|Five|Comments Off on Believe in Him or Not

Week 62 | Sections 68, 69

From one house to another and then into his home town, Jesus continues to heal, teach and inspire people with the Gospel. Over and over people’s encounter with Jesus teaches us that faith can: set us free, move mountains, raise the dead, heal the sick, and allow us to more than we can ask or imagine   – but what is to come from a lack of faith?  What is the cost of […]

Just Believe

August 28th, 2015|Five|Comments Off on Just Believe

Week 61 | Section 67

One of the name’s used to describe God is Jehovah Shammah which when translated is “The God who is there”. In today’s study we see to miraculous events among those who believe – the woman who touched his cloak and those from the house of Jarius. Despair had struck them both but faith in Jesus delivered them in an instant.  Yes, the purposes and power of God reach far beyond what we can grasp or […]

Jesus Calmed the Sea

Week 59 | Section 65

As a long day of teaching and the deliverance of one demoniac drew to a close Jesus decided it was time to cross the Sea of Galilee. Jesus entered the boat with his disciples, they hoisted the sails for the five mile trip. A flotilla of those who wanted to hear more followed along in other boats and Jesus slept while his trusted disciples navigated the waters.

When Faith Waivers

May 24th, 2015|Five|Comments Off on When Faith Waivers

Week 48 | Section 57 in the Harmony of the Gospels

What happens when our faith waivers? What should be done? What should be done? What is the consequence of such tragedy? These are the questions we explore in our study today. Your small group may like to explore other topics such as the concept of leadership and allegiance, the value of effort, obedience, and grace or perhaps what to do in the face of naysayers and critics.

Such Great a Faith

May 17th, 2015|Five|Comments Off on Such Great a Faith

Week 47 | Section 55, 56

We open to sections 55-56 for our study in week 47 Harmony Bible Radio. This week we read two healing stories and hear the witness of Jesus’ power and authority over  sickness, time, space, and even death as such our lesson hones in on the nature of faith – not of our own accord but faith in Jesus.

Freedom from Anxiety

April 27th, 2015|Five|Comments Off on Freedom from Anxiety

Week 45 | Section 54g

Mat 6:19-7:6 Luke 6:37-42

Turing our eyes from greed and love of the world we can experience true freedom.  Anxiety is stirred within us as we crave such temporal things. Oddly once gained they lose their luster and another temporal desire must fill its place – if not one’s pleasure in the eternal and spiritual things God has in store for us. Indeed, worry of such things gets us nowhere.

Jesus reminds us that God the Father is our provider and […]

The Miracle at Bethesda

February 8th, 2015|Four|Comments Off on The Miracle at Bethesda

Week 35 | Section 49a,b | Phase 4

Summary: Today’s study demonstrates the mercy of God through Jesus’s healing of a man lying beside the pool of Bethesda. The man who had been sick for thirty-eight years became well in an instant.  In his response to the Jewish elders who questioned his labor on the Sabbath, Jesus gave the response that most certainly caught their attention, inasmuch as he claimed he and God the Father were equal. Now that certainly raises two most fascinating […]

Forgiving & Healing of a Paralytic

January 18th, 2015|Three|Comments Off on Forgiving & Healing of a Paralytic

Week 32, Section 46
Summary: This week we step into the room where a crowd had gathered around Jesus to hear him teach. Over the past few months Jesus has gained many followers and disciples so many that on this day some very determined friends chose to tear open the room in order to place their friend at the feet of Jesus.  This is the kind of story that challenges me, making me ask, ‘what extent am I going to bring those in […]

Second Miracle in Galilee

November 16th, 2014|Two|Comments Off on Second Miracle in Galilee

Week 25 | Sections 36,37,28
(Broadcast on Nov 16, 2014)

While Jesus was often performing miracles that were unmistakable divine, his teaching and presence as the Messiah was to evoke a change in heart and practice. Though some still wish to see miracles, salvation and belief come by faith – not signs. So what of our faith, what shall it yield? The answer will be limited to the power of the one in whom we put our trust.

Section 36 | John 4:43-45

Ripe for Harvest

November 9th, 2014|Two|Comments Off on Ripe for Harvest

Week 24 | Section 35b,c

No bones about it, Jesus was certain of his identity and word of his deeds were spreading as quickly as the sun was ripening the grain fields.  The air was being filled with the sweet aroma of a promise – a harvest of souls and the hope of Israel.

Scripture:

Section 35b | John 4:27-38
27 At this, his disciples came. They marveled that he was speaking with a woman; yet no one said, “What are you looking […]
