Master to Messiah Day 10

  Week 2 >> Day 5 >> LOOKING BACK Jesus continues to do ministry very differently than the disciples are used to in their Jewish culture. The disciples travel with Jesus, and He prepares them by constantly challenging their worldviews. Jesus sees that some of the men are still following and learning. He chooses twelve and appoints them as disciples. >> SEARCHING WITHIN Because the disciples have now spent nearly two years walking on dusty roads with Jesus, watching Jesus care for the afflicted, seeing Jesus heal the wounded, and listening to Jesus speak the […]

Week 2 >> Day 4 >> READ John 5:1-30 The Healing at the Pool Afterward Jesus returned to Jerusalem for one of the Jewish holy days. Inside the city, near the Sheep Gate, was the pool of Bethesda, with five covered porches. Crowds of sick people—blind, lame, or paralyzed—lay on the porches. One of the men lying there had been sick for thirty-eight years. When Jesus saw him and knew he had been ill for a long time, he asked him, “Would you like to get well?” “I can’t, sir,” the sick man […]

Master to Messiah Introduction and Day 6

Week 2 >> CHANGED BY JESUS Miracles occur when inherent ability is used in works of a supernatural origin. It is said that the purpose of miracles is to validate the message or the messenger. In your walk with Jesus, there have probably been several times He worked in special ways to get your attention. Peter and the disciples experienced incredible miracles that amazed everyone. Some of them were very personal, such as the healing of family members. Others were just as impactful, even if not as personal. To be with Jesus was to […]

Week 1 >> Day 5 >> LOOKING BACK In the stories for this week, we have seen Jesus come on the scene and begin to challenge the way the people think about and view God. Peter and others have decided that His teachings are compelling enough that they want to follow him. Jesus changes them from early on, going as far as changing Simon’s name to Peter. As more people begin to follow Him, they see Jesus challenging religion, class, and culture. Jesus demonstrates a new method of ministry through His words, attitudes, and […]

Stepping into one of the boats, Jesus asked Simon, its owner, to push it out into the water. So he sat in the boat and taught the crowds from there. When he had […]

Week 1 >> Day 3 >> READ John 2:13-25 Jesus Clears the Temple Courts It was nearly time for the Jewish Passover celebration, so Jesus went to Jerusalem. In the Temple area he saw merchants selling cattle, sheep, and doves for sacrifices; he also saw dealers at tables exchanging foreign money.

He found Philip and said to him, “Come, follow me.” Philip was from Bethsaida, Andrew and Peter’s hometown.
