Matthew (Program #12) – The Beginning of the King’s Ministry

In the Old Testament, Isaiah give us a wonderful prophesy concerning the beginning of the ministry of Jesus Christ that would take place hundreds of years later.  The land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali…the way to the sea beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the gentiles.  The people sitting in the darkness have seen a great light; and to those sitting in the region and shadow of death, to them Light has risen.  So it was Christ began His earthly ministry not in the religious capital Jerusalem, but in the despised region of Galilee.

Matthew (Program #8) – The King’s Anointing (1)

“Repent, for the kingdom of the heaven has drawn near”.  This was “the voice of the one crying in the wilderness.  Prepare the way of the Lord; make straight His path”.  So begins the ministry of John the Baptist.

We have our first program today dealing with John the Baptist.  This is the one I think nearly everyone has heard of.  But probably there is not that much understood about him and his ministry.

Matthew (Program #7) – The King’s Antecedents & Status (7)

Matthew chapter two re-accounts the well known story of how the wise men came with their gifts and found the baby, Lord Jesus.  There is much more to the story than what we may commonly be familiar with.  Our goal today on this program is to see how we all can find Christ by the living star.

The first chapter of Matthew is a chapter of names.  There are 17 verses of names, the genealogy of Jesus Christ.  The chapter ends, however with two particular names, Jesus and Emmanuel.

Matthew (Program #5) – The King’s Antecedents & Status (5)

A very well-know verse in Matthew chapter 1 tells us “Behold, the virgin shall be with child and shall bear a son, and they shall call His name Emmanuel” (which is translated, God with us).”  We come today to the mysterious but marvelous birth of Christ in the gospel of Matthew.

Matthew (Program #4) – The King’s Antecedents & Status (4)

We had 3 remarkable life study programs covering a passage of the New Testament that I think most people either ignore altogether or may at most skim over the matter of the genealogy of Christ at the begining of the gospels.  But by now it is really clear to anybody who has been listening we have been missing a lot.

Matthew (Program #3) – The King’s Antecedents & Status (3)

Whatever is recorded in the Bible whether in the Old Testament or New Testament is related to Christ.  Nothing make this more clear than the genealogy of Christ recorded in the first chapter of the New Testament.

Matthew (Program 2) – The King’s Antecedents & Status (2)

All mankind can trace his begining back to Adam.  But in Galatians chapter 3:7 says “Know then that they who are of faith, these are sons of Abraham.”  Two genealogies; one to Adam, one to Abraham.

Matthew (Program #1) – The King’s Antecedents & Status (1)

The Bible is God’s speaking.  It  has two sections; the Old Testament and the New Testament.   The opening words of the New Testament begin with the look at the generations or genealogy of the Lord Jesus Christ.  These 17 verses with hard to pronounce names revealed the humanity of our Savior Christ.  This will surprise you, enlighten you but most of all draw you to this most wonderful person in the universe…

Isaiah (Program #34) – The King Reigning in the Tent of David, the Eternal Rock, a Savior

“Then will a throne be established in loving kindness and upon it One will sit in truth in the tent of David, judging and pursuing justice and hastening righteousness.”  Surely there was a king ruling from the throne in the tent of David in Old Testament time.  Interestingly, the tent of David with its kingly throne reappears in the coming kingdom age.  But does the tent of David have to do with us today?
