Week 63 | Section 70a

Legacy planning is a term many are familiar with but there are none that have proven better than Jesus’. The success is in part due to His master plan and God’s very nature which was instilled within humanity. In today’s study we find our selves peering pack onto the eve of a movement that transformed the world forever.  It was late summer, for two-and-a-half years they had followed Jesus, then become his disciples, and in the […]

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 […]

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.

Week 46 | Section 54 h, i

In this broadcast we conclude a 5 week series of the sermon on the mount.  Jesus wraps up the teaching with a familiar lesson on prayer with a simple summary: Ask, Seek, Knock.

This week is a perfect opportunity to explore and discuss the importance of prayer and talk about how you yourself as the disciple have integrated routine, regular, and continuous prayer into your life.  Its also a terrific time to talk […]

Week 44 | Section 54f

In the fourth message within the Sermon on the Mount we read from Section 54f in the ‘Harmony of the Gospels’ by Thomas and Gundry. In this section (Matthew 6:1-18) Jesus teaches the disciples and apostles gathered ‘how’ to give, forgive, fast and pray without hypocrisy.

History and archaeological records highlights the rapid spread of the Lord’s Prayer throughout Israel, to Italy, Africa, and even into Syria by the middle of the second […]

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 Priority of Prayer

December 28th, 2014|Three|Comments Off on The Priority of Prayer

Section 44 | Week 30

This week our study illustrates how prayer was an essential aspect of Jesus’ relationship with His Father and an integrated quality of his life, ministry, mission and strategy. In light of this, and instruction throughout the Scriptures we must integrate the same discipline into our lives or suffer the perils of pride, prayer anemia, and spiritual malnutrition.

Scripture:

Group Dialog:

Do you feel close to God?
How has prayer benefited you?
Why do you pray? (brokenness, for family, spouse, faith, […]

Jesus’ Baptism

Week 15 | Section 24

Today we begin the second phase of Jesus ministry, which we will study over the next two months. In history these events took place over a period of about 12-15 months.

Now Jesus’ baptism, the event in today’s story, occurs when he is about 30 years old. John had been baptizing folks for over six months and had prophesied that one day one greater than he would come. Well that was […]

The Magnificat

Week 6 | Section 7

Mary’s song of praise, The Magnificat, shows her humility, prophetic understanding of God’s intent, and willingness to be counted among the servants of God for the sake of the world. The verses and prophetic promises which she sings forth are like the threads in the divine tapestry. She models for us not only humble service, but also true worship with her whole heart and soul and all the faculties of […]
