Presentation Transcript

  1. When we get together, I want to encourage you in your faith, but I also want to be encouraged by yours. Romans 1:11-13 (Living Translation) Presented by Warm / Interactive / Relevant / Challenging / Action Oriented

  2. Conversations of Jesus Where did Jesus invest his time? Who did Jesus hang out with? How did he interact with people? What did he talk about? What was accomplished? Over the next few weeks, we are going to examine these questions through the biblical record of the conversations of Jesus.

  3. Conversations of Jesus Zacchaeus (Luke 19) Samaritan Woman (John 4) Demon Possessed Man (Luke 8 / Mark 5) The Invalid at the Pool (John 5) Nicodemus (John 3) The Adulterous Woman (John 8) The Family of Lazarus (John 11) Levi (Mark 2)

  4. Jesus Friend of Sinners

  5. Next Week Zacchaeus (Luke 19)

  6. When we get together, I want to encourage you in your faith, but I also want to be encouraged by yours. Romans 1:11-13 (Living Translation) Presented by Warm / Interactive / Relevant / Challenging / Action Oriented

  7. Zacchaeus(Luke 19)

  8. Dissecting the Story Read Luke 19:1 – 9 Who are the principle characters and what are their backgrounds? Why was Jesus in Jericho? What was His purpose for being there? Why did Zacchaeus want to see Jesus? What was the first thing that Jesus said to Zacchaeus? What was the response of “others”? How did Zacchaeus respond?

  9. Digging Deeper Initiative is important. Summarize the initiative(s) that were taken in this story and who demonstrated the initiative. Who made the first move? What barriers were crossed in this story? What risks were taken? What is surprising about what Jesus did and did not say to him? Why did Salvation come to Zacchaeus?

  10. Application Changed hearts normally yield evidence. “Religious” people will not always understand and be your cheerleader. We shouldn’t worry so much about whether people approve of who we hang out with when we’re on mission. To find the lost, you may have to go where lost people hang out. Should that be the routine for you? As you journey through life, keep a lookout for people in need!

  11. Next Week Samaritan Woman (John 4)

  12. When we get together, I want to encourage you in your faith, but I also want to be encouraged by yours. Romans 1:11-13 (Living Translation) Presented by Warm / Interactive / Relevant / Challenging / Action Oriented

  13. Haunting Lyric of the Week “Open our eyes to the world at the end of our pointing fingers”

  14. Samaritan Woman - Intro(John 4)

  15. Dissecting the Story Read John 4:1- 42 The Thirst (1-26) The Witness / The Work (27-38) The Results (38-42) Who are the principle characters and what are their backgrounds? Why was Jesus in Samaria? What was His purpose for being there? What did Jesus ask for and how did the woman respond? Why the parenthesis in v8? Was Jesus really thirsty? Why did Jesus ask for the husband? What did the statement about Messiah (v25) reveal about the woman?

  16. Dissecting the Story(Part 2) Why did Jesus have to reveal who He was, did She not recognize Him? Why were the disciples surprised about the conversation? Why did Jesus “snap” back when they tried to get him to eat something? What impact did the conversation with the woman have in the community? What convinced the townspeople to accept Jesus as Messiah

  17. Samaritan Woman – Part 2(John 4)

  18. Haunting Lyric of the Week “The world is on their way to You but they're tripping over me”

  19. Remember The Story Scene 1 – The Thirst (1-26) Scene 2 – The Witness / The Work (27-38) Scene 3 – The Results (38-42)

  20. Digging Deeper Initiative is important. Summarize the initiative(s) that were taken in this story and who demonstrated the initiative. Who made the first move? What barriers were crossed in this story? What risks were taken? What is surprising about what Jesus did and did not say to her? What was the woman’s great need?

  21. Digging Deeper The storyline is wrapped around two of mankind’s most basic needs; water and food, both of which have literal and figurative meanings in this text. What are the two meanings of water? What are the two meanings of food? The conversation with the woman was intended to guide her to belief. The conversation with the disciples was intended to guide them to mission.

  22. Application What are some modern day “people groups” where the bias may approach the “anti-Samaritan” bias from a Christian perspective? God uses “unlikely” instruments (e.g. the woman) to do great things (e.g. win the town). The lost will get tangled up in unimportant questions (e.g. “this mountain”). We must stay focused on the true question.

  23. Application When the question of salvation is on the line, the smaller things (e.g. left jar) fade into the background. You may not be able to see “the needs” until you visit “the fields” It may surprise us where the harvest work is needed to be performed (e.g. Samaria) Living Water, once received, is sufficient for eternity (Once saved, always saved). Salvation, once received, starts one on a journey, where one is continuously refreshed by a never ending source of water.

  24. Application When sinners ask for salvation they must first acknowledge their life of sin Living with a person does not constitute marriage (v 17-20). Erroneous doctrines can be an impediment to salvation. Don’t always expect to be the harvester, you may be the sower, and vice versa.

  25. Next Week Demon Possessed Man (Luke 8 / Mark 5)

  26. When we get together, I want to encourage you in your faith, but I also want to be encouraged by yours. Romans 1:11-13 (Living Translation) Presented by Warm / Interactive / Relevant / Challenging / Action Oriented

  27. Demon Possessed Man(Luke 8 / Mark 5)

  28. Haunting Lyric of the Week “We cut down people in your name but the sword was never ours to swing”

  29. Dissecting the Story Read Luke 8:26-39 Is this a literal or a figurative story? Why was Jesus in Galilee? What was His purpose for being there? Who are the principle characters and what are their backgrounds? How did the man know who Jesus was? Why did he fear Jesus? What part did pigs play in the story? Why were the towns people afraid? What was the man’s desire after Jesus changed his life?

  30. Digging Deeper Summarize the initiative(s) that were taken in this story and who demonstrated the initiative. Who made the first move? What barriers were crossed in this story? What risks were taken? What was the Man’s need? What is surprising about what Jesus did and did not say to him?

  31. Application The authority (and compassion) of Jesus is second to none. No one is so far gone that they can’t benefit from receiving Jesus. Do not reject any of God’s creation from moving toward Him. Be careful about introducing things into your life that can affect your mind. When you yield your mind, you lose your purpose.

  32. Next Week The Invalid at the Pool (John 5)

  33. When we get together, I want to encourage you in your faith, but I also want to be encouraged by yours. Romans 1:11-13 (Living Translation) Presented by Warm / Interactive / Relevant / Challenging / Action Oriented

  34. The Invalid at the Pool (John 5)

  35. Haunting Lyric of the Week “A plank eyed saint with dirty hands and a heart divided”

  36. Dissecting the Story Read John 5: 1-18 Why was Jesus in Jerusalem? What was His purpose for being there? Who are the principle characters and what are their backgrounds? Where did the healing of the invalid occur? What was the man waiting for? How did Jesus respond? What was the man’s response? What was the response of the Jewish leaders?

  37. Digging Deeper Summarize the initiative(s) that were taken in this story and who demonstrated the initiative. Who made the first move? Why did Jesus single out this one? What barriers were crossed in this story? What risks were taken? What was the Man’s need? Is this story an allegorical view of sin? What is surprising about what Jesus did and did not say to him?

  38. Application Sometimes we get so focused on the “healing” that we forget to thank the “healer” We need to ensure that “church rules” are aligned with God’s heart. We might not be seeing healing in our churches because we don’t allow or make provision “invalids” near our doors. God may offer physical healing sometimes to the unyielding as a part of His drawing them to Him. Mercy and grace can first be demonstrated as an example given by physical ministry. Medical humanitarianism?

  39. Application We should be careful to rejoice with baby Christians and slow to rebuke them because they act like babies. By example of Jesus, “faith healing” should not draw attention to the “faith healer”. Jesus has a way of getting your attention.

  40. Next Week Nicodemus (John 3)

  41. When we get together, I want to encourage you in your faith, but I also want to be encouraged by yours. Romans 1:11-13 (Living Translation) Presented by Warm / Interactive / Relevant / Challenging / Action Oriented

  42. Nicodemus (John 3)

  43. Haunting Lyric of the Week “Always looking around but never looking up I'm so double minded”

  44. Dissecting the Story Read John 3:1-21 Why was Jesus in Jerusalem? What was His purpose for being there? Who are the principle characters and what are their backgrounds? What time of day did this story occur? Why? Nicodemus made a “startling” statement concerning the identify of Jesus. What was it? Was Jesus satisfied by the “recognition” by Nicodemus?

  45. Digging Deeper Summarize the initiative(s) that were taken in this story and who demonstrated the initiative. What barriers were crossed in this story? What risks were taken? Jesus enticed Nicodemus with a “double meaning”. Should a Pharisee have known about the “new birth”; i.e. born again? What was the real need of Nicodemus? When Nicodemus exits in v9, what is his “spiritual” condition? What is surprising about what Jesus did or did not say to Nicodemus?

  46. Application The journey to light starts in darkness, for all of us. Great knowledge can trip up our understanding of simple truths. “So called” leaders do not have a lock on spiritual insight. We each are accountable for our on journey. It’s not enough to acknowledge that Jesus is special (i.e. a teacher), you must acknowledge Jesus as savior. This requires recognition of who you are; i.e. a sinner in need. Belief is personal; i.e. one on one.

  47. Application Positions of influence and power can be a stumbling block to faith. Belief results in & comes from humbling ourselves. Some people do not immediately respond to the gospel but come to faith down the road.

  48. Next Week The Adulterous Woman (John 8)

  49. When we get together, I want to encourage you in your faith, but I also want to be encouraged by yours. Romans 1:11-13 (Living Translation) Presented by Warm / Interactive / Relevant / Challenging / Action Oriented

  50. The Adulterous Woman (John 8)
