JESUS TEACHING IN THE TEMPLE STORY
EARLY CHRISTIAN TEACHINGS
Welcome to the Temple of God in Jerusalem, where we find Jesus teaching in the Temple during His last days before His Last Supper, Death and Resurrection. Donít forget that the parables that Jesus taught 2000 years ago, still apply to our lives today just as they did back then. Iíll show you what I mean in just a moment. While the Pharisees were determined to find some way to convict Jesus of something, Jesus continued teaching in the Temple.
This is the Jesus teaching in the Temple parable of the wedding feast that He told:
The Kingdom of Heaven is like a certain king who planned a marriage feast for his son. He sent out his servants to call those who were invited to the wedding, and they wouldnít come. Again, he sent out other servants, saying, Tell those who are invited that the feast is ready, my oxen and my fatlings are killed and everything is prepared, so come now to the marriage.
But, it didnít matter to them, and they went their ways, one to his farm, and another to his business, and the rest took his servants and slew them. When the king heard about it, he was angry and he sent out his armies and destroyed the murderers and burned up their city. Then he said to his servants, The wedding is ready, but those who were invited werenít worthy.
So, go into the streets, and as many people as you can find, invite to the marriage. So the servants went and
gathered as many as they found, both bad and good and the wedding was furnished with guests. When the king came in to see the guests, he saw a man who didnít have on a wedding garment, and he said to him, Friend, how did you get in here without a wedding garment? The man was speechless. Then the king said to the servants, Tie him up and take him away and throw him into outer darkness, there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
For many are called, but few are chosen.
Remember I told ya I was gonna tell you how Jesusí
parables apply to our lives today? How many times have you gotten an
invitation from the Lord to join Him for an occasion, but were too
busy with other things to accept His invitation? Think of it this way:
God sends out invitations to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. You have
a little reply card that youíre supposed to send back, telling Him if
youíre gonna attend. You never find the time to respond, because,
well, you have a busy life, yíknow. (This little reply card represents
the time that you spend with God, your faithfulness, your praise, your
thankfulness, your serving Him, etc.)
Now, later, when the celebration day has arrived, you dig through your papers and find the little card and go to the wedding ... But ... Your place has been given to someone else. It doesnít matter if you have the little paper card. You didnít respond to Him. Hereís the good news. He sends you an invitation every day!
JESUS TEACHING IN THE TEMPLE CONCERNS
CHRISTIAN TEACHINGS AND WARNINGS
Jesus teaching in the Temple and then turn Him over to the governor. They said to Jesus, righteous and you respect no man more than another, but that you teach the way of God in truth. Is it lawful to give tribute to Caesar or not? Should we give or not? But Jesus was one step ahead of them and knew their hypocrisy. He said to them, Why do you test me? Bring me a penny so I can see it. And they brought Him a penny. Whose image and superscription is on it? Jesus asked them. They answered, Caesarís. So Jesus replied, Give to Caesar the things that are Caesarís and give to God the things that are Godís. They were surprised at Jesusí words and went their way.
The same day, the Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, came to Jesus during Jesus teaching in the Temple and asked, Master, Moses said, If a man dies having no children, his brother shall marry his wife and raise up
children to carry on his brotherís name (Deuteronomy 25:5-10).
What if there were seven brothers, and the first married a wife and died with no child, leaving his wife to his brother. The same happened with the second and the third all the way to the seventh. Last of all, the woman died too. In the resurrection, whose wife will she be of the seven, because she was the wife of them all.
Jesus answered, You have made a mistake not knowing the scriptures, or the power of God. In the resurrection, people donít marry and arenít given in marriage, but they become like the Angels of God in Heaven. (The Angels are Heavenly and Spiritual, not fleshly and have no need of spouses.) But, concerning the resurrection of the dead, havenít you read what God said, I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living. (That means that Abraham, Isaac and Jacob are living, which
means there is a resurrection.)
The people heard this and they were astonished at Jesusí doctrine. But when the Pharisees heard that He answered the Sadducees well, one of them who was a lawyer asked Jesus, testing Him, Master, what is the greatest commandment of all? Jesus said to him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength. This is the first and most important commandment. And the second is like it,
You shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these. All the
law and the prophets are fulfilled in these two commandments.
The man said, Master, you have spoken the truth, for there is one God and there is none other but Him, and to love Him with all the heart, and with all the understanding and with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbor as himself is more
than any burnt offering or sacrifice. When Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, He said to him, You arenít far from the kingdom of God. After that, no man dared ask Jesus any question.
While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus
asked them a question. Why do you think they say that Christ is
Davidís son? David himself said in the book of Psalms by the power of
the Holy Spirit, The Lord said to my Lord, Sit at my right hand, until
I make your enemies your footstool (Psalms
110:1). If David
called him Lord, how can He be Davidís son?
Then while Jesus was teaching in the Temple, Jesus said
to His disciples,
Beware of the scribes, who like to walk
in long robes, and love greeting in the marketplace, and the highest
seats in the synagogues, and the chief rooms at feasts, who devour
widowsí houses, and for a show make long prayers. They will
receive greater damnation.
Then ... During Jesus teaching in the Temple, Jesus looked up and noticed the people putting
their gifts into the treasury, and many that were rich put in a lot.
Then a poor widow came and threw in two mites, and Jesus called His
disciples and said to them, I tell you honestly, that this poor widow
has put in more than they all have. Compared to their riches, theyíve
put in just a small portion to God, but she of her
poverty has put in all the living that she had.
