Notes on Scripture: by tkbrown

Note on Lesson: This lesson is quite lengthy. I considered splitting it, but it needed the continuity of the entire lesson which is based on Matthew Chapter 8. All of the scripture presented in this lesson is supporting Matthew Chapter 8. So, I decided to leave it all in rather than split it up.

~~~~~~~~~~

Jesus came to Nazareth where he had been brought up and went to the synagogue where he had been reared. He read from the book of Isaiah:

  • 1 — “‘The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed.'”
  • 2 — “‘to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.'” (Isaiah 61:1, 2).

After sitting back down, He told them this scripture had just been fulfilled in their hearing. In other words, he announced to them He was the Messiah come to earth to preach God’s plan to man. Thus, the people were astonished at His knowledge and the words which He spoke. They were saying among themselves, ‘Is this not Joseph’s son?’ ‘Where did He obtain this knowledge?'”

Jesus then told them, “a prophet can never return to His own country and be accepted. You will be saying to me, “Physician heal thyself.” and “Whatever you did in Capernaum, do that here too!”

Continuing to teach, He told them in the days of Elijah when the famine came to the land there were many widows in Israel, but Elijah was sent only to one–Zarephath. Further, He said, in the days of Elisha there were many lepers in the land, but only one was cleansed–Naaman, commander of the army of the king of Syria. Then they were all upset with Him, took Him to the top of a hill overlooking the sea with the intent of throwing Him over, but–since His time had not yet come–He slipped through the crowds and away. Leaving the region, He went down to Capernaum in Galilee where He began teaching in the synagogue. Again, all were astonished at His teaching for He taught as one having knowledge.”

Then a man with an unclean spirit came into the synagogue. The demon began calling out asking Jesus if He had come to destroy him. He said, “Why are You here?” “What have we to do with You?” “I know who You are–You are the Son of God.” Jesus, rebuking the demon, commanded the unclean spirit to come out of the man and be quiet. The spirit convulsed the man then came out, amazing all who saw. They began to question as to whom He was that even the spirits obeyed Him. Then, word of Him, his teachings, and His good deeds spread throughout the region.

When Jesus left the synagogue, He and His disciples went to Peter’s house. Peter’s wife’s mother was sick with a high fever. Jesus took her by the hand and healed her. Then she served them. Then, word went out that Jesus was in town, and the multitudes came to Him bringing their sick and demon-possessed to be healed. He healed all of them.

The next morning, He went out to a place to be alone for a while and to pray to God, His Father, but the multitudes followed wanting him to teach them and heal them. A certain scribe came to Him and vowed to follow Him wherever He went. Jesus told the man He was not like others–both man and animals have places to call home, but He did not. Another man vowed to follow Him as soon as he had buried his father. Jesus basically told the man to follow Him and let the dead care for their own.

Seeing no respite here, Jesus asked His disciples to put out to sea because He must go to other cities preaching the kingdom of God because for this purpose He had come to earth. So, they left. After the boat set sail a storm came up creating great waves lapping over the sides. When the disciples found Jesus, He was fast asleep. The disciples woke Him expressing fear of perishing because of the storm. Jesus expressed disappointment in their lack of faith; then He quieted the seas. The disciples–now in awe–asked each other, “Who is this, that even the winds and the seas obey His command?” (Matthew 8:27).

Their fear really did not make sense. They knew He was God’s Son, yet they feared the boat would be destroyed and they would die in the storm. After all, is God going to let the boat be destroyed while transporting His Son–not likely.

When the boat docked in the land of Gergesenes, Jesus and the disciples disembarked. Meeting two men who lived in the tombs and greatly feared because being demon-possessed, they were quite violent in nature. The demons recognized Jesus and began calling to Him. After acknowledging Him as the Son of God, the demons asked, rather than killing them, would He cast them into a nearby heard of about 2000 swine. Jesus complied, and the swine ran down the steep him into the sea and died. When the herds’ keepers saw this, they ran into town and told what had happened. Then the whole town came out to meet Jesus and asked Him to leave.

Now, even though the disciples had followed Jesu, they still worked for a living. As Jesus stood by the Lake of Genesaret, He saw two boats by the sea. When close enough, He saw that the fishermen were away from the boats washing their nets. He sat in one and asked Simon to put out a little and He taught the multitudes who were following Him. from the boat. When finished, He told Simon to cast out to sea and let down their nets for a catch. Simon explained they had toiled all night with no catch, but (thinking better of what he had just said) at Jesus’ word, they would try again. When they had cast the nets, immediately they had so many they could not pull them in because the nets were breaking. Signaling to their partners for help, all of them managed to get the fish into the boats which then began to sink. Simon fell to his knees and told Jesus to leave him because his faith was not sufficient to be Jesus’ helper. He and all of the partners were amazed at the catch after a full night of nothing being caught. Jesus told them to not be afraid for from that day forth, He would make them, “fishers of men.” When they had brought their boats safely back to land, they forsook all and went with Jesus.

So it was that one day as Jesus was teaching, the power of the Lord was present for all to be healed, and there were Pharisees and teachers of the law from every town of Galilee, Judea, and Jerusalem. Certain ones brought a paralytic to be healed. This man was confined to his bed. Finding the crowd to be so huge they could not even get close to the door they removed a section of the roof and ceiling to let the man down right where Jesus stood. When Jesus saw what they had done, He was amazed at their faith, and told the man his sins were forgiven. Then the scribes and Pharisees began to reason in their hearts that “no one but God had the authority to forgive sins. So, they began thinking, “Who is this who utters such blasphemies?” (Luke 5:21). Jesus seeing them reasoning these things among themselves mentioned it to them. He asked them which would be easier, to tell a man his sins were forgiven or to tell him to pick up his bed and walk. Then He said to them:

“‘But that you may know that the Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins’–He said to the man who was paralyzed, “I say to you, arise, take up your bed, and go to your house!'” (Luke 5:4).

When the man immediately arose, picked up his bed, and went home glorifying God, all present were amazed. They glorified God and were filled with fear at the strange and amazing things they had seen.

In an earlier lesson, I mentioned the veil which was rent into two pieces at the instant Jesus died on the cross. I noted this instant is when the New Covenant began. Prior to this time, the Old Covenant was still in effect. I would like to note that today’s lesson refers to the ‘kingdom of God’ several times. Each time it is referenced, it notes Jesus came to earth to preach the ‘kingdom of God.’ Jesus is still doing much of His teaching in the synagogues on the Sabbath. He is still preaching and teaching under the Old Covenant of the Jewish dispensation. He is preaching about ‘the kingdom of God’ , but it has not yet become a reality. That will happen when the veil is rent into two pieces. After that time, ‘the kingdom of God’ will be referenced in the present tense.

Notes on Scripture: by tkbrown

Reading through the scriptures above, we see that John had not met or seen Jesus prior to this event. God had instructed John that His Son would be The One upon whom the Holy Spirit descended in the form of a dove — and remained upon Him. By this, John would recognize God’s Son.

When Jesus came to the Jordan River to hear John preach, there was a specific purpose for His appearance. This would be the beginning of preparing the public for Jesus’ ministry. When John saw the Spirit descend as a dove and remain upon Jesus, he knew this was the Son of God for whom he was sent to clear the way. He first mentioned Jesus’ presence without introducing Him. After this, Jesus approached John and asked John to baptize Him.

It shocked John to be asked such a thing of the Son of God. He pointed out his need to be subject to, and baptized by, Jesus rather than the other way around. John asked, “I need to be baptized by You, and are You coming to me?”

Jesus reminded John of the need to fulfill prophecy, and then was baptized by John. Upon coming up from the water after baptism, God recognized His Son publicly when His Voice from heaven said, “You are My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased!” Thus, Jesus’ introduction to the world was complete.

Rather than confuse the message presented in this lesson by including Jesus’ lineage now, I will cover His roots in the next lesson. Both this lesson and Jesus’ lineage are long enough to cover separately . . . and each has specific value separate from the other. As I develop these lessons, I am listening to my heart song when I am urged to ‘stop here.’ I had intended to cover these lessons more quickly, but Jesus’ life, ministry, death, and resurrection are too important. It is necessary to limit the lessons to specific subjects rather than a cumulative presentation. The reason for this new approach is to aid those who choose to study in being able to ‘rightly divide the word of truth.’ While the reasoning may not make sense now, it will after the study is complete. Thank You for stopping by, studying, and listening with ‘your’ heart. Have a Blessed Week!
