Friday: Further Study

How to Recognize Jesus

Avoid every question in relation to the humanity of Christ which is liable to be misunderstood. Truth lies close to the track of presumption. In treating upon the humanity of Christ, you need to guard strenuously every assertion, lest your words be taken to mean more than they imply, and thus you lose or dim … [Click to read more …]

Thursday: The Transfiguration

The Transfiguration

Read all three Gospel accounts of the Transfiguration (Luke 9:27-36, Matt. 17:1-9, Mark 9:2-8).

The only other instances that the title appears are in Daniel 7:13, in Stephen’s speech (Acts 7:56) and in Revelation 1:13 and Rev. 14:14. The … [Click to read more …]

Monday: Son of God

Father and Child Embrace

Son of Man and Son of God are two names used in the Gospels to describe who Jesus is. The first indicates God incarnate; the second points to His divinity as the second Person of the Godhead.

Sunday: Reactions to Jesus

Jesus Raises a Widow’s Son

Read the Gospels; read the New Testament. All through these books incredible claims are made about not only what Jesus did but, even more important, about who Jesus was. (Of course, what Jesus did powerfully attested to who He was.) These claims-that He is God, that He is our Redeemer, that He alone is the … [Click to read more …]
