5 things the Scribes & Pharisees Teach Us About Shallow Teaching

In a nutshell the Scribes & Pharisees were dangerously shallow in their teaching. They managed to interpret, manipulate and alter the meaning of God’s word in horrible ways. Observing how they toyed with Scripture can help us avoid the same pitfalls in biblical interpretation. At The Journey we’ve spent the last several weeks studying Matthew 5 and the shallow teaching that Jesus was correcting in his sermon on the mount. Below are 5 examples (based on Matthew 5:21-48) of how bad teaching can corrupt and destroy a pursuit of holiness....Keep Reading

Jesus said...

Shouldn’t we be using the teachings of Jesus to understand where there’s truth in the blogosphere rather than using the teachings found on the blogosphere to understand where there’s truth in what Jesus said? I feel like Christians (people who claim to follow the way of Christ) should be in agreement on this....Keep Reading

Matthew Starts Sunday!

Despite man’s wicked schemes, opposing views and the endless debates that surround this synopsis of Christ’s life and ministry I believe that time spent in Matthew will inevitably continue to change people, all to the glory of God. My simple prayer is that by the end of this study there are more Christians in the world. I pray that there would be more people who truly understand the message of the gospel. I pray that people will be given ears to hear the significance of who Jesus is, what He came to do, what He is doing and what He will do. ...Keep Reading

Amos: Teaching Calendar/Resources

Don't let this book's position in the Bible fool you, there's more to Amos than you may realize. Amos is located in a section of your Bible known as the "writing prophets" or to label it as Jesus did "the prophets" (Matthew 5:17, Luke 24:27). Now typically when we think of Old Testament prophetic books the big-dogs come to mind like Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel and Daniel (the major prophets). Beyond those major prophets are twelve smaller prophetic books (Hosea - Malachi) known as the minor prophets, they're labeled "minor" ONLY because of the length of their books in comparison to the larger major prophets. In fact, the Hebrew Bible lumps all of these minor prophets into one book called "Book of the Twelve."...Keep Reading
