Watch this helpful video from The Bible Project folks on Psalms. Our goal for The Journey Bible Project for the Psalms is straightforward and important: experience worship of Yahweh in Psalms by writing blogs on each Psalm, reading them in worship and in homes and Bible studies, and preaching from them.
One of the most remarkable stories of Jesus is found in today's Journey Bible Project Blog, "The Sheep and the Goats," from Matthew 25. What did Jesus mean for his first hearers to do? What are we to do with this tragic, hopeful story?
Will Jesus Christ return to the earth? When? The disciples wanted to know. In Matthew 24, one of this week's readings in The Journey Bible Project, Jesus answers the questions the disciples ask, and Greg Taylor addresses some of the questions we ask today about the rapture and AD 70 and provides videos of other biblical scholars on this important topic.
Today's Journey Project Blog is horror reading for church leaders. Today's photo does not represent the person delivering the horrible words, but this photo represents church leaders who receive the horrible words. The deliverer of the horrible words is Jesus.
Matthew the Evangelist points back to the prophet Zechariah's poignant words about what's about to happen when Jesus enters Jerusalem. He rides into Jerusalem on a young donkey. Listen, the prophet says, "Your King is coming to you. He is gentle; he is riding on a donkey." His first actions were not so gentle, as Greg Taylor discusses in today's Journey Bible Project Blog.
Jesus tells his disciples he's going to Jerusalem, and he tells them exactly what is about to happen: he will be betrayed by one of them, handed over and crucified, but he will rise from the dead on the third day. In today's Journey Bible Project Blog, watch how the disciples respond to this news.
Jesus doesn't talk about every detail of life so that we can somehow program our relationships and religious practices. He instead teaches how to fulfill the law in a way of the Spirit, what Jesus and Paul call the more "perfect" way of love that uses wisdom, compassion, and justice in everything. In today's Journey Bible blog, Greg Taylor discusses how Jesus deals with the thorny issues of divorce and marriage.
Why are children so important to Jesus? In today's Journey Bible Project blog, Greg Taylor explains why children are part of the kingdom vision of Jesus.
