MURP 0008: Living the Life of the Beloved pt06

“Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.” Are we as Christians good enough to follow God’s Law to the exact letter? How did the scribes and Pharisees interpret God’s Law in an attempt to quantify and qualify His Law? Which commandment does Jesus say is the greatest? John Sweitzer leads the Bible study this week to discuss these topics and more during this week’s episode.

“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children off God.”

What does it mean to be “pure in heart” so that we may see God? How may we see God? How may we become peacemakers so we may share God’s message with others? These topics and more are discussed in this week’s episode as we continue with Jesus’s Sermon on the Mount in the book of Matthew.

“Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.” As we continue our series through the book of Matthew we study what it means to be comforted through the forgiveness of God, how we may use that comfort to forgive others, and how our meekness may transform people in the long-term.

MURP 0004: A Spiritual Walk With Otte

Direct Episode Download

Due to Easter Sunday, no Bible Class hour was held this past Sunday, but that won’t keep us from bringing a weekly episode to you! Please enjoy this interview with Pastor Otte as he talks about his spiritual walk through life, what influenced him to become a pastor, and how he strives to improve upon his ministry both personally and professionally.

Also because we did not have a Bible Class, we do not have any class notes for download for this week. However, we will continue our “Living the Life of the Beloved and the Belonged” class series next week.
