Luke (Program #42) – The Man-Savior’s Presentation of Himself to Death for Redemption (1)

Try to imagine in ancient times when a king or a prince would come and visit a certain place, the nature of that procession no doubt the king would come in either riding in a royal carriage or at least riding on a great white steed.  Now we come to the climates of the Lord Jesus long journey to Jerusalem and His triumphal entry as the King of the Universe into the city of God. One that His disciples would certain would accommodate in taking His proper place on the throne of David in the temple and establishing His earthly kingdom and in splendor and majesty. It is against in this backdrop that we read Luke 19 in His actual entry into Jerusalem not on a great white horse or in a royal palanquin but instead riding on a most humble of all creatures, a young donkey.

Luke (Program #1) – Introduction, Subject and Contents of the Gospel (1)

The New Testament begins with four different accounts of the life of Jesus Christ our Saviour. Matthew is profound presenting us with Christ as the king in His kingdom; John is mysterious, showing us Christ as the very God; but Luke though not as profound or as mysterious is altogether sweet and pleasant because Luke unveils Jesus Christ as a man. A man who is both sweet and pleasant because His living displays and expresses the very nature and essence of God lived out in His perfect humanity. This is not just a man but the Man-Saviour.

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.

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.
