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 […]

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.

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 […]

Gratitude and the Gospel

January 11th, 2015|Three|Comments Off on Gratitude and the Gospel

Week 31, Section 45

A year since Jesus was baptized his public ministry now includes more healing as he shows his compassion to others and the number of followers and disciples is increasing.  Our study today reveals something more about Jesus’ purpose, his manner of ministry, and his concern for our own physical condition.

Scripture:

Group Dialog:

Why does the leper come to Jesus? By doing so, he breaks the rules of Lev 13-14 (Lev 13: 45-46)
How might our perspective of what God wants and what […]

The Embrace of Community

December 21st, 2014|Three|Comments Off on The Embrace of Community

Week 29 | Section 43

This week we read of Jesus healing Peter’s mother-in-law and learn about the nature of community, compassion, and care. In this passage we see the compassion of Christ as the consolation of Jerusalem. Jesus’ attention to the Sabbath, care of the Peter’s mother-in-law and the others gathered provide us a worthy model that would transform cultures and communities around the globe.

Scripture:

Group Dialog:

Why do you think Matthew, Mark, and Luke include the story of […]

Power and Authority

December 7th, 2014|Three|Comments Off on Power and Authority

Week 28 | Section 42

Jesus has gone to the Synagogue on the Sabbath but there encounters a demoniac. Astounding those present, he sets the demoniac free and word of Jesus’ authority spread throughout the region. The Good News is not limited to our salvation but our daily experience of God’s grace and power in our lives as we live Christ.

Scripture:

Group Dialog:

What kind of authority does Jesus have in the synagogue? In his teaching? And […]

The Spirit of the Lord is on Me

November 23rd, 2014|Two|Comments Off on The Spirit of the Lord is on Me

Week 26 | Section 39

Though Jesus had already shown sufficient evidence and declared himself to be the Messiah, when Jesus reads from the scroll the prophetic words “The spirit of the Lord is upon me…” from the scroll of Isaiah – we catch another glimpse of God’s eternal purpose and his plan to see it accomplished.

Scripture:

Luke 4:16-31a
16 He came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up. He entered, as was his custom,¯ into the synagogue on […]

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.

Scripture:

Section 36 | John 4:43-45
43 […]
