Ten Looks At Jesus

Our Submission

Therefore God exalted him to the highest place    and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,    in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,    to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:9-11 2:9-11 (NIV

The Ascension

He told them, “This is what is written: The Messiah will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, and repentance for the forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things. I am going to send you what my Father has promised; but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high.”  When he had led them out to the vicinity of Bethany, he lifted up his hands and blessed…

Ten Looks at Jesus: The Resurrection

On the resurrection day, the ladies who followed Jesus rushed to the tomb to finish the burial that was done hastily on the day of the crucifixion. They were filled with sorrow and grief. But they were surprised with joy when the angel said to them Jesus has risen. Nothing can explain how the stone rolled away, nor how he was able to pass the Roman soldiers who were guarding the tomb, except that He was risen and He was…

Ten Looks at Jesus: The Triumphal Entry

Today we look at Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem. In the Book of Isaiah 50:7, the prophet described the suffering Messiah as setting his face like flint. It was an expression of Jesus’ unwavering determination to suffer and die for us. Join us as we learn about 3 characteristics of Jesus from this event. We can also be sure that this humble and suffering Messiah will be coming again as a victorious King to whom every knee will bow. As…

Ten Looks at Jesus: The Garden Prayer

Gethsemane is about prayer. Why did Jesus pray? What did he pray? And how did God answer His prayer? We learned that God answered “No” to one prayer and “Yes” to another prayer from Jesus on the same night. Because of Jesus’ incredible love for us, he fully drank the cup of the wrath of God so that we would see the glory of God and be with Him in heaven one day. Jesus went out as usual to the…

Ten Looks at Jesus: The Transfiguration

In this passage, we read about His transfiguration. This event illustrates 2 points: Who is Jesus and Why did He come into the world? For a brief moment in time, His inner circle disciples witnessed the glory of God shine through Jesus’ humanity. Moses and Elijah were present as a picture that Jesus was the fulfillment of the law and the prophecy. He must suffer for the sin of the people. The Lord of glory would die for those he…

Ten Looks at Jesus: The Temptations

Today we look at a passage of scripture that talks about Jesus’ temptations. Were the temptations of Jesus easier than the ones we experience because he did not struggle with sin? What areas were Jesus tempted and how did he respond? How can we overcome temptations based on the examples given to us by Jesus? Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, left the Jordan and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness, where for forty days he was tempted…

Ten Looks at Jesus: The Baptism

Baptism is a symbol of repentance for sinners. So why did Jesus have to be baptized when he was sinless? He did so to identify with us sinners. His baptism was also the fulfillment of the prophecy that pointed to the crucifixion. Jesus set examples for us to follow in baptism, in prayer, and in being filled with the Holy Spirit. If he who was sinless recognized the need for such spiritual discipline, how much more do we need to…

Ten Looks at Jesus: The Childhood

This is the only passage in the scripture that focuses on Jesus’ childhood. When Jesus was 12 years old he went with his parents to Jerusalem for the festival of the Passover. Jesus said he must be in his Father’s House. Though this is a statement we hear often, at that time, it was a shocking statement for someone to claim that God was his father. Jesus knew firmly who he was and made a bold statement. He knew himself…

Ten Looks at Jesus: The Birth

The birth of Jesus was the reality that God moved history for His plan and His purpose to be accomplished. Everything happened exactly as the prophets had foretold. Though it appeared in our human eyes that the powerful ones were the rulers of the Roman world, the one in control and the most powerful one of all, was the infant who was born. Jesus was born in poverty as a helpless babe so that in his poverty we might become…
