Matthew 20c

Open Our Eyes

April 22, 2018 • Andy Falleur

- Here at the end of Matthew 20, Jesus heals two blind men outside of Jericho. This is an interesting event, especially as you compare Matthew, Mark and Luke. Matthew includes details that are significant for his theme of teaching us to observe everything Jesus commanded, so that we can be disciples. Keywords: discrepancies, compassion, servant-leader, greatness

Matthew 28:10

Women Ministers • November 11, 2018 • Andy Falleur

- Because Jesus commissions the women to pass along his instructions to his disciples, this seems like it’s contrary to Paul’s instructions about women in 1 Timothy 2. So, in this study, we looked at both the role and place and significance of women in the New Testament, and then looked afresh at the qualifications for an overseer in 1 Timothy 3. Keywords: Pastor, Overseer, Women, Leadership

Matthew 28:1-10

Risen! • November 4, 2018 • Andy Falleur

- Our Bible Study was from the first 10 verses of Matthew 28, which is Matthew’s record of the resurrection. We looked at the details he gave us, in that it was on Sunday morning, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to view the tomb, and how they were commissioned by the angel, and then by Jesus to share the good news with the disciples. Lastly, we took note of the way Matthew emphasizes the significance of the resurrection. Keywords: Sunday, Women, Resurrection, Gospel Proclamations

Matthew 26:57-66

Buried • October 28, 2018 • Andy Falleur

- In our text, Jesus’s body is buried by Joseph of Arimathea, and the Jewish leaders request a seal and a guard. It’s a fascinating passage because of the repeating structure. We talked about the necessity of Jesus’ death and burial and how it had to be that same day and a rich man doing it. Beyond that, we saw the things that Jesus’s death accomplished. We finished by looking at how death and resurrection become part of the Christian life. Speaker: Andy Falleur Keywords: Death, Promise, Faithless, Death of a Vision
