A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

Read Matt 25:31-46 and immediately four questions come to mind, and answering them correctly takes a little doing. In fact, a number of respected commentators have missed the mark. As usual with the Bible, a careful reading combined with some logical deduction will go a long way toward bring the answers to light.

The Parable Of The Wedding Banquet

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

Jesus spoke to them again in parables, saying: “The kingdom of heaven is like a king who prepared a wedding banquet for his son. He sent his servants to those who had been invited to the banquet to tell them to come, but they refused to come.

The Olivet Discourse … Luke’s Version

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

Students of prophecy often pay more attention to Matthew’s version of the Olivet Discourse because of its greater length and detail. But when we bypass Luke’s account, we miss one third of the Lord’s message. That’s because the disciples asked the Lord three questions and in Matthew 24 He only answered the last two. Also, it’s Luke’s answer to their first question that confirms the whole message as it relates to the End Times.

If you confess with your mouth Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart God raised Him from the dead you will be saved (Rom 10:9).

What’s Contained In The Old Is Explained In The New

Commentary by Jack Kelley

I first heard the title phrase some years back, along with its companion, “what’s concealed in the old is revealed in the new.” They helped with my understanding that the Book we call the Bible is just that … one book. It’s not 66 or even 2 but one. Sure it has two parts (they’re actually called covenants) but it’s one book. The more we know about the contents of the first part, the better we will understand the second. It’s just like any other complex issue; an understanding of context or background is a big help in achieving comprehension. (Think of the Old Testament as background, putting the New Testament into proper context.)
