8 Weeks About Jesus

, ,

I’ve heard it said that 80% of our sermons today are out of the words of Paul. And I’m not saying we should disregard Paul’s comments…but 80%!? We know Paul wasn’t Jesus, right? May I suggest that as Kingdom Christians who are baptized believers living in the New Covenant trying to follow Jesus, we shouldn’t focus on what he did and said a little more? Let’s work through the Jesus life and follow a simple reading plan that can easily be added to your daily reading! We are going to spend eight weeks about Jesus. You can do it!

1st Week About Jesus

The Preparation

In the chapters below, we will receive introductions and learn about young Jesus. Then we’ll transition to his Baptism by John, tempted by satan, and we know about Him calling his first disciples! Finally, we will also read about one more fascinating thing – His first miracle.

Early Judean Ministry

(8-9 months)

After preparing for his ministry, we will continue reading about the first Passover and his interview with Nicodemus! Finally, to conclude, we will finish with the all-familiar story of the woman at the well.

2nd Week About Jesus

Galilean Ministry

(1 Year and 3-4 months)

We’re moving fast through Jesus’ life. We will explore the 1st year of His ministry as he heals the official sons, gets rejected in His hometown and calls four more disciples. This year of Jesus’ life is action-packed. He also casts out demons and heals Peter’s mother-in-law and a leper. He is busy.

Second Year of Ministry

We will also enter His second year of ministry, attend the Second Passover (about A.D. 28), and learn how He heals at the pool. This is also exciting because we know how Jesus begins to handle conflict with a Sabbath controversy.

During this year of Jesus’ ministry, he appointed the 12 disciples and taught the infamous Sermon on the Mount.

Second Year of Ministry

During Jesus’ second year of ministry, he also is questioned by John the Baptist and spent more time teaching in Galilee (his second tour). During this tour, he casts out more demons, we learn about who Jesus’ true family is, and we learn about the parable of the Kingdom.

We see more interactions with the Disciples this season as Jesus moves into his third Galilean tour. This is where he also begins to send the 12 disciples out two by two.

Second Year of Ministry

Wrapping up Jesus’ second year of ministry, we read about the death of John the Baptist and how Jesus feeds 5,000+ people.

Traveling with the Twelve

(6 months)

So what does Jesus do during the day? Let’s find out. Continuing this week, we also learn what Jesus does and teaches his disciples regarding clean and unclean things. He casts out more demons, feeds another group of people (4,000+), and heals a blind man (Woah!). Jesus also spends time with God and Moses at the transfiguration and predicts his death for the first time. Wrapping up, we learn the disciples could not heal a demonized boy without Jesus being there this time.

We hear the parable of the Good Samaritan, and we receive a stern warning about being hypocrites. Finishing up, he heals a woman and a blind boy.
