Jesus the King

by admin

The Gospel of Matthew presents Jesus as the King.  Jesus is introduced firstly as the “son of David” and then the “son of Abraham”.  It would appear that Matthew is emphasizing the kingship of Jesus, since David is mentioned before Abraham.  The genealogy in Matthew chapter 1 presents Jesus being born through the kingly line […]

Doubt and Disappointment

by admin

In the Gospel of Luke we see tension growing between Jesus and the whole range of religious sects that were either the Jewish government or close to it:  groups that were often enemies, coming together for the sole purpose of destroying a new teacher who was unraveling the complicated charade that they had built around […]

The transfiguration of Jesus is an episode in the New Testament narrative in which Jesus is transfigured and becomes radiant upon a mountain. The gospels (Matthew 17:1-9, Mark 9:2-8, Luke 9:28-36) describe the event. In these accounts, Jesus and three of his apostles (Peter, James, and John) go to a mountain..

The Olivet Prophecy – Part 2

by admin

I have been considering the Olivet Prophecy that Jesus spoke to his disciples in the final week of his life. If we recall from the previous post, Jesus wanted to re-direct the disciples’ attention from the magnificence and beauty of structures (the temple) and show them that God, the Father was not as interested in buildings […]
