DEEP Studies

Jesus sets His disciples up for their coming persecution with the beatitudes and the command to love their enemies. He points out that some people call Him Lord yet don’t do what He commands. A Centurion understands what the disciples do not. This teaches the true meaning of the word Lord.

Jesus eats with sinners, doesn’t command his disciples to fast, heals on the Sabbath, and even claims to forgive sin. Then he prays all night before choosing his disciples. What’s He up to?

Jesus won’t let demons tell everyone who He is. He prioritizes preaching and recruiting disciples over healing, while keeping part of His mission a secret. His personal touch when healing is unique.

Jesus emerges from Satan’s temptation to amaze and offend just about everyone.
Jesus and John start to surprise people with their unique attitudes and behaviors.

Jesus is born and it seems like everyone already knows who He is. Some folks even know some disturbing details. Mary bears the burden of all this.

Mary isn’t the only one to have a child; Elizabeth is already pregnant. Mary rushes to her side and has a legendary visit. Two of the greatest songs of all time are in this section: the Magnificat and Zechariah’s Song.

Zechariah and Mary both get good news, but Zechariah doubts Gabriel’s word. Zechariah gets a lesson in how to talk to angels.

The LORD shows up, and Job’s desire to question Him melts away in a heartbeat.
Elihu is young, but his wisdom is so profound that some think his appearance is a Christophany. Still, Elihu gets too wrapped up in the details, and this pulls him off track.
Job really understands God, but doesn’t understand himself.
