100 Words (or less) and a Biblical Text: Matthew 13:24-52

More parables from Jesus here. His interpretation governs. Interesting that there is more about wailing and gnashing and teeth than money in these parables.

100 Words (or less) and a Biblical Text: Matthew 12:14-50

Matthew 12:14-50 has a lot happening. We see Jesus’ affirmation of Isaiah/Jonah, the Pharisees’ blasphemy of the Holy Spirit, and the fact Jesus is the only one who knows the thoughts of another.

100 Words (or less) and a Biblical Text: Matthew 5:1-20

5 And seeing the multitudes, He went up on a mountain, and when He was seated His disciples came to Him. 2 Then He opened His mouth and taught them, saying: 3 “Blessed are the poor in spirit,For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.4 Blessed are those who mourn,For they shall be comforted.5 Blessed are the meek,For they shall inherit the earth.6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,For they shall be filled.7 Blessed are theContinue reading “100 Words (or less) and a Biblical Text: Matthew 5:1-20”

100 Words (or less) and a Biblical Text: Matthew 4:1-11

4 Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. 2 And when He had fasted forty days and forty nights, afterward He was hungry. 3 Now when the tempter came to Him, he said, “If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread.” 4 But He answered and said, “It isContinue reading “100 Words (or less) and a Biblical Text: Matthew 4:1-11”

100 Words (or less) and a Biblical Text: Matthew 3:13-17

13 Then Jesus came from Galilee to John at the Jordan to be baptized by him. 14 And John tried to prevent Him, saying, “I need to be baptized by You, and are You coming to me?” 15 But Jesus answered and said to him, “Permit it to be sonow, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness.”Then he allowed Him.Continue reading “100 Words (or less) and a Biblical Text: Matthew 3:13-17”

100 Words (or less) and a Biblical Text: Matthew 3:1-12

The Bible is not about you. The Bible is also not about me. The Bible is about Jesus Christ (John 5:39-45; Luke 24). It is about who He is and what He has done. Sadly, heretics like Erwin McManus narcigete biblical passages to make the Bible about them. McManus did that in his train-wreck ofContinue reading “100 Words (or less) and a Biblical Text: Matthew 3:1-12”

100 Words (or less) and a Biblical Text: Matthew 2:1-23

2 Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, 2 saying, “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him.” 3 When Herod the king heard this, he was troubled, and allContinue reading “100 Words (or less) and a Biblical Text: Matthew 2:1-23”

100 Words (or less) and a Biblical Text: Matthew 1:1-25

The Bible is about Jesus (John 5:39-45; Luke 24). One can trace the line of the Messiah throughout the Old Testament. Therefore, if one sees Jesus Christ in the Old Testament, one is not necessarily eisegeting Him into the biblical text; Jesus is already there!  I’ve heard people say Jesus came to change the world.Continue reading “100 Words (or less) and a Biblical Text: Matthew 1:1-25”

100 Words (or less) and a Biblical Text: Matthew 7:1-29

I’ve seen Matthew 7:1 misinterpreted. If people read onwards in this powerful chapter (which concludes Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount, a sermon that began in chapter five), one would realize that Christians do judge (see also 1 Corinthians 5 and John 7:24). After all, it would make little to no sense to beware of falseContinue reading “100 Words (or less) and a Biblical Text: Matthew 7:1-29”

100 Words (or less) and a Biblical Text: Titus 1:5-16

Have you ever thought that it was God’s will that false teachers be silenced? It’s not a novel thing. After all, Paul, the author of Titus, wrote Titus (like the rest of his epistles) by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit (2 Peter 1:16-21). If God’s Word says that the mouths of deceivers must beContinue reading “100 Words (or less) and a Biblical Text: Titus 1:5-16”

100 Words (or less) and a Biblical Text: Matthew 25:31-46

The parable of the sheep and the goats, a parable of judgment, is an awesome parable. Unfortunately, I’ve seen folk butcher it in books (Bob Goff), sermons (David Ashcraft and Jeff Miner to name a couple) and the like. In this text, pay attention to when the judgment takes place. Furthermore, pay attention to whatContinue reading “100 Words (or less) and a Biblical Text: Matthew 25:31-46”

100 Words (or less) and a Biblical Text: Genesis 1:1-2:3

I’m currently working on a long article on the Association of Related Churches (ARC). I’m reviewing a sermon by each of the six founders. One of these founders (I won’t spoil for the upcoming article….sorry not sorry) said that the first thing God did was “He blessed.” He must have ripped Genesis 1:1-1:21 out ofContinue reading “100 Words (or less) and a Biblical Text: Genesis 1:1-2:3”
