John (Program #45) – Life’s Prayer (4)

Because of the deceit of religion and the darkness of politics, He was delivered to death. He was proved to be without fault, but religion and politics were exposed to be dark, deceitful, and corrupt.

We’ve come today to the section of John 18 through 20 dealing with the Lord’s death on the cross and His resurrection. Generally, we consider the Lord’s death in relationship to the work of redemption. But we will see once again today that this Gospel, though certainly not minimizing the redemptive aspect, has another emphasis; the release and multiplication of life which resulted from Christ’s death.

Mark (Program #30) – The Preparation of the Slave-Savior for His Redemptive Service (3) & (4)

The Lord Jesus enter into Jerusalem exactly six days prior to His crucifixion. During the first two of these days He was welcomed by the crowd who honored Him and exalted Him really for the first time in His earthly ministry.

The next four days were time of testing and examination by both the religious and the political leaders. These two groups who were natural enemies became united in their desire to defeat the Slave-Savior who had now won the hearts of the people. Various factions of these two groups plotted using the out most of their human cunning and reasoning to trap Him. But each attempt merely afforded the Lord another opportunity to display His marvelous wisdom confounding them on the one hand and inciting them on the other hand to do what they needed to so that He could do what He must do; and that is to be offer up a sacrifice at the hand of these very same leaders, a worldly religion and politics.

Acts (Program #65) – The Propagation in Asia Minor and Europe through the Ministry of Paul’s Company (31)

Stories of corruption in politics, religion, and even among God’s people are frequent in the news today. We hear such tales on tv and radio, and in the newspapers daily. It’s easy to be disgusted, even ashamed, at what we hear, and we wonder how our society could have fallen to such a low condition. But, corruption has long plagued man’s society. The account of the corruption of politics, religion, and even to some degree the Church of God is a major focus of the Bible in especially the book of Acts. How did God’s Called Ones deal with such a discouraging situation? We will see on today’s life study of the Bible.
