Series: Matthew (2013)
Duration: 57 mins 41 secs
True stories of the lives of famous people quickly move to the top of the best sellers' charts.

See how his emphasis is on Christ as the promised Messianic king. Buckle your seatbelt for a "fly-over" view of the entire book and its six-point outline to get you ready for the not-to-be-missed practical ways this gospel can impact your life.

Passage: Matthew 1:18-24 & Luke 1:26-35
Series: Matthew (2013)
Duration: 50 mins 59 secs
"What's in a name?" Shakespeare wrote. "A rose by any other name would smell as sweet." Listen to this lesson to learn the remarkable significance of the name of Jesus and how it was prophesied over 700 years before His birth. Find out the reason for His miraculous conception by a creative act of the Holy Spirit rather than the result of Mary and Joseph having sex. See how the adoration of Mary is related to pagan practices and how the title, Son of God, indicates that Jesus, although fully human, shares all of the attributes of Deity.

Series: Matthew (2013)
Duration: 57 mins 41 secs
Dunk forward or dunk backward? Arguments over questions like this have wreaked havoc in Church history as "baptism wars" rage through the centuries. Listen to this lesson to learn what the Bible teaches about two categories of baptism and about whether baptism is necessary for salvation. See how Christian baptism speaks of the changed life of the believer. Learn about John the Baptist's mission to proclaim the coming Messiah and what Kingdom of Heaven and Kingdom of God mean.

Passage: Matthew 3:10-12
Series: Matthew (2013)
Duration: 46 mins 5 secs
Repent! The Kingdom of heaven is at hand! Judgment is near! Listen to this lesson to discover a withering doomsday message proclaimed by John the Baptist. Understand the vivid word pictures John uses to describe the coming judgment and the three uses of "fire". Contrast John's baptism as a sign of repentance with Christian baptism by means of the Holy Spirit as our identification with Christ at the instant we believe. Learn how repentance to John means turning to God and should be followed by obedience to God, just as Christian baptism demonstrates the power of Christ in our lives as we obey Him.

Series: Matthew (2013)
Duration: 48 mins 51 secs
Some days trouble barrels toward us like a huge snowball, threatening to overwhelm us. How can we handle those times? Listen to this message to learn how Jesus in His humanity was able to counter the tests of the Devil. See how Jesus' baptism by John the Baptist was an announcement that Jesus was God's Son and find out how God uniquely anointed Jesus with the Holy Spirit. Discover that Jesus never acted independent of the Father's will and demolished the Devil's temptations because of His knowledge of the Word of God.

Passage: Matthew 4:12 & John 1:26-51
Series: Matthew (2013)
Duration: 51 mins 46 secs
"Who does He think He is?" "I knew Him when He was just an ordinary kid." Listen to this lesson to see how His family and old acquaintances in his hometown found it unbelievable that Jesus was the promised Savior. Hear about those who did accept His Messiahship and those who rejected it. Discover the meaning of the word "believe" and whether a special kind of faith is needed or if the object of what we believe is what counts. See how Jesus threw Phillip for a loop when He revealed He had seen him under the fig tree and the significance of this. Consider the challenge of discipleship in your own life and see if you are willing to be a student of the Word of God for the journey of a lifetime. Also includes Luke 4:14-30.

Series: Matthew (2013)

Was Jesus really the Messiah, and, if so, where is the promised kingdom? Listen to this lesson to find out that John the baptist was wondering about this as he was languishing in prison. Hear that based on John’s background, he was not doubting that Jesus was the Messiah. See what it meant for him to be filled with the Holy Spirit from the day of his birth. Find out what his relationship was to the prophet Elijah and why his father, Zacharias, became mute. See that not everyone responds to the gospel until many times of hearing it, if at all.

“All rise!” PIcture yourself in a courtroom where Matthew is presenting a case to prove that Jesus fulfills all the requirements of the Messiah. Find out if John the Baptist was Elijah and why Jesus called him the greatest of all the Old Testament prophets. See what Jesus means when He talks about the kingdom of heaven suffering violence. Understand that how you define where you’re headed will determine the decisions you make today. Consider if you are willing to take a stand that no matter what comes, you’re going to stick with the plan of God for your life.
