In the Word

As we continue our two year program of reading through Today's Light Bible,

here are the answers to last weeks questions (Matthew 14 through Matthew 25):

 

As Jesus teaches his disciples about the suffering and death that he will undergo, what does Jesus make clear will also happen in connection with his death?

 

When speaking about his suffering and death, Jesus says time and again that he will rise from the dead! (Matthew 16:21) Even though he explained this many times the disciples still did not understand what he meant.

 


According to Jesus who is the greatest in his kingdom?

 

Jesus says whoever humbles himself like a little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven (Matthew 18:4).

 


Our Bible reading continues with Week 77: Matthew 26 through Mark 8.

 

While Jesus was at a dinner a woman came and poured perfume on his body. What did Jesus say this woman was really doing?


As Jesus spoke to a paralytic, telling him his sins were forgiven, what thought did the teachers of the law have that was both wrong and right?
