Forsaken (Matthew 27:45-54)

As we return to Matthew 27 we are in the midst of a horrifying scene. Jesus has been crucified and now hangs from the cross, suspended in the air by nails in his hands and feet. He has been crucified between two other criminals. The scene before us is a scene of shame and mockery. People are passing by on their way in and out of the city of Jerusalem. As the people walk by, they are hurling insults and shaking their heads at Jesus. The scribes, elders, and chief priests are also mocking Jesus. I want us to remember that each of these events, and even the very words these insulters are proclaim ..read more

Crucified (Matthew 27:27-44)

Jesus has been condemned by the crowd. Barabbas has been released to the people and Jesus has been scourged in preparation for his crucifixion. But it will not be as simple as going out to the place of his execution. The Roman soldiers now will take a turn with Jesus. The Roman soldiers bring Jesus inside and gather a whole company of soldiers around him. They strip Jesus of his clothing and then place a red robe on him. Then they take some thorns and twist it together to make a crown out of it. Then they put the crown of thorns on his head. If this is not enough, they put a staff in his hand ..read more

Tried (Matthew 27:11-26)

Condemned by the Sanhedrin council, Jesus is bound and led away to stand before Pilate, the governor of the region of Judea (Matthew 27:1-2). Now you have to appreciate what the Jewish leaders have to do to get Jesus before Pilate. Pilate is a Roman governor and would have no concern if Jesus called himself their Messiah or blasphemed their God or their temple. So what is the charge that the Jews will generate to give reason for Pilate to hold a trial against Jesus? The answer is to say that Jesus was misleading the people by calling himself a king (cf. Luke 23:2). So this is why Pilate asks J ..read more

As we come to the end of Matthew 20, we are seeing Jesus’ ministry come to a close. Chapter 21 begins by telling us that Jesus has come to the Mount of Olives and to Jerusalem. Chapter 19 told us that Jesus had left Galilee and made his way to Judea, the region where Jerusalem is located. But this will be the final time that Jesus comes to Jerusalem. But Jesus has another hard saying and important teaching for his disciples before he arrives in Jerusalem… To read more of this lesson click here.

Ready For His Coming (Matthew 25)
Biblical Truths from West Palm Beach church of Christ

3M ago
Matthew 24 ended with Jesus warning his disciples that they need to be ready for his coming in judgment. In last week’s lessons we saw that Jesus warned that his delay to bring judgment will tempt his servants to no longer stay awake and be ready and will tempt his servants to mistreat one another (cf. Matthew 24:42-51). Matthew 25 will now explain what being ready for Jesus’ coming looks like. This would be very important and appropriate for them to hear now because Jesus is warning that he was going to come in national judgment against Israel. Not one stone of the temple would be left upon a ..read more

Ready For His Judgment (Matthew 24)

Matthew 24 is one of the most controversial and misunderstood passages in the New Testament. Any time there is a disturbance in the world, many run to this chapter to try to find answers. This comes particularly from verses 6-7 of Matthew 24. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for this must take place, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places. (Matthew 24:6-7 ESV) So any time there are wars, people look to this chapter. Any time there is an great ..read more

Denied (Matthew 26:69-27:10)

Jesus has been arrested and taken to the high priest where a trial has started. The trial is not a seeking of the truth. The trial is to find false witnesses that will give a false testimony about Jesus so that the ruling Jewish council can have him executed. All of the disciples abandoned Jesus at his arrest and ran away. However, we are told that Peter has returned to follow Jesus at a distance as they go to the high priest for trial (Matthew 26:58,69). Last week we read what was going on inside during Jesus’ trial. Now the scene moves outside, where we see Peter sitting in the courtyard of ..read more

Understanding Jesus’ Marriage Law (Matthew 19:1-12)
Biblical Truths from West Palm Beach church of Christ
by Brent Kercheville

Matthew 19 is a turning point for this gospel account of Jesus. The first verse of chapter 19 tells us that Jesus is leaving Galilee and going to Judea. Luke’s account proclaims that Jesus has set his face toward Jerusalem. This will be the last time Jesus will go to the region of Judea and to the city of Jerusalem. Large crowds continue to follow Jesus and Jesus continues to heal the crowds. But then some Pharisees approach Jesus with a question with the purpose of testing Jesus. Here is their question: “Is it lawful to divorce one’s wife for any cause?” (19:3). Now if we were to ask this que ..read more
