In the opening chapter of the book of Acts, the Lord instructed the Apostles to remain in Jerusalem and to wait for what the Lord had promised, the baptism of the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:5). Now, gathered together in one place, the promise is fulfilled. Just as Jesus was crucified publicly, the outpouring of the Holy Spirit came in a dramatic, public f…
 
"When the fullness of time came, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the Law, so that He might redeem those who were under the Law, that we might receive the adoption as sons." (Galatians 4:4-5) Jesus Christ came into the world at a particular point in history, to a particular place in the world and born into a particular culture. B…
 
Waiting is one of the hardest things to do. We often sense that answers to our prayers are delayed, or that God isn't answering these prayers. We are tempted to believe that God is not working during these times when we must wait. But nothing is farther from the truth. In the opening verses of the Book of Acts, Jesus bid farewell to the Apostles. B…
 
Mention the topic of church history and you will likely hear the sound of eyes rolling. History, in general, has the reputation of being dry, boring and generally unimportant. And while history may be presented in this manner, we must never neglect the importance to our modern lives, especially when it comes to church history. This is the first les…
 
In the opening verses of the book of Acts, the apostles spend 40 days with the risen Lord. During that time, He taught them the things concerning Himself, and "the things concerning the kingdom of God." (Acts 1:3) Surely the disciples would have been encouraged to be in the presence of the resurrected Christ. They likely would have been eager to go…
 
The Book of Acts and the Gospel of Luke are, in essence, are two parts of the same book. Acts continues where Luke's Gospel leaves off. And so we interpret the Book of Acts in the context of what Christ has done. As such, the Book of Acts then becomes a bridge connecting what Jesus has done to what Christ is doing in His church today. As we begin o…
 
We make choices every day. Some choices are insignificant, such as what to eat, or what to wear, etc. Other choices are more significant, sch as education, marriage and family. And some choices have impacts that echo into eternity. In today's lesson we look at two people who made choices based upon their faith in God. We consider the choices made b…
 
The Book of Acts is often referred to as "The Acts of the Apostles." While this is the most traditional title, it is not necessarily the most accurate as most of the apostles are not named. Another possible title often considered is, "The Acts of the Holy Spirit." Again, while the Holy Spirit is prominent in the events of the book, this view dimini…
 
Every believer at some point in their walk with the Lord experiences questions, and even doubts. Life is filled with troubles that grieve us; leaving us to wonder how we reconcile our trials and tribulations with the promises of God in Scripture. In his life, Abraham also dealt with questions. The man referred to as the friend of God, and the fathe…
 
In many ways, Isaiah 53 is the ultimate Messianic passage in scripture. Like few other passages in the Old Testament, it defines the role of the Messiah in receiving glory through suffering. When Jesus was with His disciples and following Peter's confession of the Christ, we read that, "He must go to Jerusalem, and suffer many things from the elder…
 
Isaiah 53 is often referred to as the Gospel According to Isaiah. With his song of the Servant, Isaiah, beginning in Isaiah 52:13, gives the perspective of future Israel looking back at the cross and the Messiah whom they pierced. Through this series, we have seen the exaltation of the Servant, the rejection of the Servant, the substitionary work o…
 
If someone does wrong to you, many will say, "Don't get mad, get even." But Scripture takes a different approach to the wrongs done to us. Paul wrote to the church in Ephesus, "Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you" (Ephesians 4:32 NASB). Peter wrote to the church in Asia, "not ret…
 
The current cultural climate increasingly focuses upon social justice. Protests, both peaceable and violent, speak out regarding claims of injustice against minority groups. Surely there is a time and place for speaking up. Jesus spoke with authority and demons were cast out, the sick were healed, the lame walked, etc. The greatest injustice in his…
 
In Genesis 12, the Lord called Abram to leave his home, his relatives and his father's house and journey to a land the Lord would show him. The promise of God was to make Abram a great nation; to make his name great; to bless the nations of the earth through his seed. By faith Abram stepped out, leaving it all behind; with one notable exception. Ab…
 
As we continue our journey through Isaiah 53, sometimes referred to as the Gospel according to Isaiah. In verses 4 thru 6, we are now in the third of five stanzas of this "Song of the Servant". This stanza is central to the entire song. It is in this stanza we see the cross, and Jesus substitution for the sinner, clearly on display. At the cross, J…
 
Isaiah 53 is a portion of the Old Testament that is sometimes referred to as the Gospel according to Isaiah. Last time, we saw the Exalted Servant; the servant exalted because of His suffering, but it is this suffering that will cleanse the nations. Today, we see the Rejection of the Servant. Isaiah 53 is written from the perspective of Israel look…
 
Next to the Psalms, the book of Isaiah is the most referenced Old Testament book in the Old Testament. Many of Isaiah's prophecies find their fulfillment in the person and work of Jesus Christ. As Isaiah 52 closes, we are met with a call to, "behold my servant." A direct reference to Messiah, the Lord says of His servant that He, "will prosper, He …
 
After forty years of wandering in the wilderness God now prepared the children of Israel to enter and begin the conquest of the land of Canaan. Jericho, the first obstacle they faced, seemed insurmountable, if considered from merely human perspectives. But as the two spies sent to get the lay of the land, their encounter with Rahab taught them thre…
 
As some states and localities begin to open up following the peak in COVID-19 infections, the world seeks for answers. In today's lesson, we consider how we can look upon this time from a Christian, Biblical perspective. We will see: The unity and importance of the local church That personal relationships are important Physical touch is necessary T…
 
In a world under constant change and constant struggle, it is difficult not to worry. There are concerns about our health, exacerbated by the spread of Corona Virus. There are concerns with money as retirement looms for some; or the expense of raising children or paying for college. All these are real world issues, but are they cause for us to worr…
