  1. These videos make a bigger difference to me than many Sunday school lessons could. Im a teenager who deals with so much and this helps me to see God’s message more clearly. I wish everyone could see these videos. Thank you for these! 🙂

    • Will IngToRebel: Their explanation are not supported by scripture.. Satan uses the word of God to deceive many, be careful, he is the slickest snake… False teachings here

  2. I was hoping there would be a bit of an explanation on Luke 14:26 when Jesus says to the crowd “If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his own father and mother and wife, brothers, sisters, yes, even his own life, he cannot be My disciple.” I thought Jesus commanded us to love one another. I feel that I’m misunderstanding the context of what Jesus means when He uses the word “hate” in this verse, and I can’t quite wrap my brain around this passage. what’s Jesus trying to say here?

    • I think in this context, Jesus is saying if someone tries to become a disciple and has not repented of their sin/old lifestyle (hating one’s own life) or continues to deny Jesus in front of those who refuse to believe Him (father, mother, wife, etc.) then they cannot become his disciple. For example, if two members of a Muslim family accepts Jesus as their Lord and Savior, the family will be divided and the new Christians will be hated because of that decision. I guess in the context of the verse you mentioned, say those family members accept Jesus but continue to deny Him to their family members for acceptance, they cannot become Jesus’s disciples. I hope this helps! 🙂

    • This is a beautiful example of Dialectical Negation, something the Israelites loved to do. Basically, in order to emphasize the importance of one thing, they rhetorically reject a second thing. So, Jesus is basically saying that we must put him above all other things, even our own family and our own life. Another example of Dialectical Negation is this: “I desire mercy, not sacrifice.” Well, God commanded sacrifice. Taken literally, this text makes little sense. The prophet is saying: “I desire mercy far more than sacrifice.” He is elevating one thing by negating something else. See what I mean?

    • Good question! And great answers, I’ve just got a bit more to add.

      It is also important to understand that culture back then was very collectivist in its thinking. Individualism was not promoted, in fact, to be an individual and “go against the flow” or “find yourself”, something that is quite acceptable in Western culture, was seen as a sign of deviance and looked down upon (you can still see a bit of this in modern Asian cultures, though not nearly as enforced as it was in the ancient Mediterranean area). So Jesus had to emphasize the “separating yourself from your family and community” bit because that was a huge hurdle that any Israelite would have to get over if they were to choose him. In some cases, it quite literally would be either Jesus or your family, you don’t get to keep both. This still happens in some areas of the world.

      On top of that, we need to remember that the reason Jesus divided so many households and caused so much commotion was because of his message, that the Kingdom of God was coming, but that it looked a lot more like loving your enemies (in this case, Rome) instead of the pagan nations being destroyed and Israel being made into the sovereign world leader like many Israelites were hoping for. That and the fact that Jesus overturned much of what the Jews believed about their purity rituals, food restrictions, religious rites, and so forth because the roles of all those things had reached their fulfillment and end in his coming (See NT Wright’s fantastic “Simply Jesus for a more thorough explanation) led to him being an extremely divisive figure. Either you followed Jesus and basically denied your very identity as an Israelite (which would include separating yourself from your family, community, etc.) or you rejected Jesus and stayed with your family. The point is, the nature of Jesus’ calling was so completely opposite of so much Jewish ideology that to follow him and adhere to his values would often involve an extreme rejection of the things that were closest to you.

      This is a pretty simlified explanation of a far denser and complicated subject, so there are many nuances that I’ve left out, but that’s the basic gist of it. Hope that helps!

    • It also says that Jesus questions whether people think he came to spread peace to the earth..And he states that ( verse 49, chapter 13 ) He would rather bring division.From now on 5 in 1 household will be divided, 3 against 2, and 2 against 3.Father against son, son against father.Mother against daughter, and daughter against mother, it goes on..Very strange, considering Jesus message was always about love, fellowship, truth and justice…

    • assault and battery

      Matthew 10:34-36

      34  *Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.*

      35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.

      36 And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.

      John 14:27-31
      27 Peace I leave with you, *my peace* I give unto you: *not as the world giveth,* give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

      28 Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.

      29 *And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe.*

      30 Hereafter I will not talk much with you: *for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.*

      31 But that the world may know that *I love the Father*; and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.

  3. A very good avenue to learn and understand the Scripture. I have learned so much from your videos. Thank you so much The Bible Project! Been thinking of supporting the project as a way of expressing my gratitude to you in creating very informative, more than a commentary-like videos. You are a great help in strengthening Christian faith.

    • Are you implying that these women were not the disciples of Jesus? Are you confusing apostles? The 12? Jesus had many disciples. He chose 12 from among those. John 6:66 . . . Disciples follow Jesus. Simple definition. Aren’t you a disciple as well?

    • ex machina

      John 6:60-71
      60 Many therefore of his disciples, when they had heard this, said, This is an hard saying; who can hear it?

      61 When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it, he said unto them, Doth this offend you?

      62 What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before?

      63  *It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.*

      64  *But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him.*

      65  *And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.*

      *66  From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him.*

      67 Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away?

      68 Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? *thou hast the words of eternal life.*

      69 And *we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.*

      70 Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil?

  4. I just wanted to say that these videos are great 👍🏻👍🏻! They have taught me a lot about being a great person 💗 and about my religion ✝️. Ever since I started watching this channel I have changed so much! Thank you 😊

  5. Why are you calling Jesus a Masonic king do u know what that means?

      although these appear to be a nice cliff note Bible study, and at first I was enjoying the clips… there are things that don’t seem right with me. to be honest it flat out troubles me, therefore I am unsubscribing. I am staying with my own Bible study and let the Holy Spirit guide & teach me. I trust him.

      minute mark 3:7 – 3:17
      humility and repentance is not “the only requirement” for “entrance” but rather whosoever believes in Jesus Christ shall not perish but have everlasting life. we are saved by grace through faith in Christ Jesus and not of ourselves, it is a gift from God, not of works so that no one may boast. Believe in Jesus Christ, believe ON him, it is through faith in him. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life, no one comes to the Father but through him.

      minute mark 3:17 – 3:23
      upside down kingdom? repeatedly describing it as upside down? 😕 its small and subtle enough, but no, I reject that. show me with the scriptures where it says or describes it in this way? no.

      Acts 17:11
      These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, *and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.*

      Matthew 7:13-14
      13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:

      14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

      God bless you my brothers & sisters in Jesus Christ, be careful.❤

    • Amen sister that is true all of what you said i agree with…And saying Jesus is a masonic king really i mean your saying that Jesus is the king of and occult society of people who worship the devil, so who are you worshiping?
      And if you made a mistake i pray and hope threw Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior you correct it and never say it again.
      And if you are Freemasons Jesus die for you too and if you accept Him as your Lord and Savior today you can be saved.
      As long as there is life there is hope amen.
      Peace be still in in Jesus Name Amen 0:) Blessings 😀

    • sis i went back to check the word use that sounds masonic king but actually the brother said Messianic king so i made the mistake of not checking and I’m sorry for that soo ill be a bit more vigilant when listening i suggest you do the same sis blessings

    • +Tyrone Nunez
      God bless you, dear brother. Thank you for catching that and letting me know. I agree we need to be careful in that regard either way, as we do not want to make a false accusation, neither can we ignore if there is a false teaching, something that is contrary to the word of God. There are somethings in their videos that they are teaching, their doctrine, that has caught my attention and I brought it to the attention of an elder. It has been thoroughly and appropriately researched and confirmed to be contrary to scriptures. They are currently working on providing the evidence for this to present to others. I passed it along as I wanted to ensure it was properly handled, in the right way as we are instructed to do according to scripture. My elders are far more equipped and capable than I am in addressing this. I will remember to come back to this post here and share the links with you when they are given to me so that you may decide on your own based on the evidence provided and compare it to scripture.

      God bless you Tyrone.

  6. Matthew 8
    5 And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him,

    6 And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented.

    7 And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him.

    8 The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed.

    9 For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.

    10 When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.

    11 And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven.

    12 But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

    13 And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour.

    Isaiah 40:22
    [It is] he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof [are] as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in:

    Job 26:10
    He hath compassed the waters with bounds, until the day and night come to an end.

    proverbs 8:27
    When he prepared the heavens, I [was] there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth:

    John 16:13
     Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

    JESUS CHRIST is the King of kings, and Lord of lords, the only begotten Son of the only true and living Father God, the Creator of all things, from everlasting to everlasting. My King, my Savior, my Redeemer, my good Shepard, my Rock, my foundation, my Almighty, all Powerful, all Knowing my Lord and my God:

    1 Timothy 1:17
    Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.

  7. I really enjoy these videos & have used one in a class I teach. I was looking for a video of the story of the Good Samaritan though. Is there one? If not, could you guys do on?

  8. Quick point: Wasn’t Jesus’s last words “It is finished”? I’m not denying what he said to the criminal but I feel like that came earlier.
