Simple Jesus Bible Study

Starting September 28, 2020, 7:00pm EST
FREE – Zoom Online Bible Study

What you’ll learn:

  • Understand the story of Jesus of Nazareth, not as a ‘religious figure’, but as a person who lived, taught, worked, and carried out his mission within a 1st Century A.D. historical context.
  • Explain the role of Jesus within his context and understand the difficulties and resistance to who he was and to what he said.
  • Understand some of the key biblical texts which speak of the life, teachings, and work of Jesus within the literary and cultural setting of his day
  • Discern the various political and philosophical movements that provided the backdrop for the actions of Jesus and which provide further meaning to Jesus’ life story.
  • Embrace an understanding of the Jesus of history and not simply the traditions which emerged centuries after his death.
  • Examine the narrative of the story of Jesus to see his works within a Jewish context as a fulfillment of the work of the God of Israel and the vindication of that work through the resurrection from the dead.

Forgiveness

Matthew 6:14-15

“For if you forgive men when thy sin against you, Your Heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if ye do not forgive men their sins, Your heavenly Father will not forgive your sins.”

I know this is a touchy subject because a lot of us think we don’t have to forgive because we were in the right. I’m sorry, it doesn’t work that way. Our Father states it pretty simply. If we don’t forgive those who have done us wrong, then He can not forgive us. Unforgiveness is a burden we put on ourselves. We wear them with pride. We even tell other people, so they can assure us were done wrong and we are so spiritual and did the right thing

NOT!!!

The scriptures says, if we don’t forgive, we are wrong and cannot be forgiven. I much rather forgive someone else than to lose fellowship with the Father. He also tells us to love the unloving. It is not love if we cannot forgive. The next time someone does you wrong, put yourself in their shoes and forgive them no matter what. Il forgive sometimes is as hard to do as saying,

“I’m Sorry”
