Matthew Chapter Eight

(Outline continues from Day 281)

  1. Some wanted to follow Jesus, but when He explained the cost of discipleship they had other priorities (Mt. 8:18-22).

(Chapter Eight continues on Day 288)

Matthew Chapter Nineteen

  1. After leaving Galilee, the Lord continued His healing ministry in Perea (Matt. 19:1-2).

(Chapter Nineteen continues on Day 303)

Mark Chapter Ten

  1. Jesus relocated the center of His ministry to the region of Judea and beyond the Jordan (i.e. Perea) (Mk. 10:1).

(Chapter Ten continues on Day 303)

Luke Chapter Nine

(Outline continues from yesterday)

  1. Luke’s Gospel is the only record of the misplaced zeal of James & John, sons of Zebedee (Lk. 9:51-56).  In this incident we see the typology of Joab & Abishai (David’s kinsmen) fulfilled in Christ (cf. 2nd Sam. 16:9-10).
  2. The chapter ends with the Lord explaining what priorities a disciple will maintain (Lk. 9:57-62).

John Chapter Seven

(Outline continues from yesterday)

  1. Jesus resisted the temptation to publicly proclaim Himself at the Feast of Tabernacles, but went up privately to observe the events there (Jn. 7:10-13).
  2. The Lord responded to the people’s confusion with a clear and accurate message—revealing the Father’s Teaching (Jn. 7:14-39).
    1. He assured the people that they can have an assurance of the true message (vv.17-18).
    2. He exposed the murder plot against Him (vv.19-24).
    3. He affirmed His commission from God the Father (vv.28-29).
    4. He witnessed to the very officers that were sent to arrest Him (vv.33-34,45-47).
    5. He concluded His conference teaching with another gospel call (vv.37-39).
  3. The result of the Lord’s teaching throughout this feast was considerable division—among the people and even among the Pharisees (Jn. 7:40-52).

John Chapter Eight

  1. The Pericope de Adultera (Jn. 7:53-8:11) likely contains an accurate story from the life of Jesus, but should not be considered a genuine part of the Gospel of John.
  2. The Lord delivered the second of His great I AM messages: revealing Himself as the Light of the World (Jn. 8:12).
    1. Jesus barely got His message started before the Pharisees interrupted Him with their accusations (Jn. 8:13).
    2. Jesus answers them with another revelation of God the Father—a message that highlights the testimony of His Heavenly Father (Jn. 8:14-20).

(Chapter Eight continues tomorrow)
