Ten Looks At Jesus

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…

A Prayer for Sanctification

Jesus prays to the Father that He may sanctify us. But what does sanctification mean exactly? Who is responsible for this process? What aspect of our lives does it include?

Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. The earth and the heavens fled from his presence, and there was no place for them. And…
