We will be picking up where we left off again. We are now in the
Temple of God in Jerusalem, where we find Jesus teaching in the
Temple as one of His last acts before His Last Supper, Death and
Resurrection. Don't forget that the Christian Teaching Bible parables
that Jesus taught 2000 years ago, still apply to our lives today just
as they did back then. I'll 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 a thought provoking Christian Teaching Bible parable of the
wedding feast that Jesus told:
1 And Jesus answered and spake unto them again by
parables, and said,
2 The Kingdom of Heaven is like unto a certain king, which
made a marriage for his son,
3 And sent forth his servants to call them that were
bidden to the wedding: and they would not come.
4 Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them
which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my
fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage.
5 But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to
his farm, another to his merchandise:
6 And the remnant took his servants, and entreated them
spitefully, and slew them.
7 But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth: and he
sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up
8 Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but
they which were bidden were not worthy.
9 Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye
shall find, bid to the marriage.
10 So those servants went out into the highways, and
gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and
the wedding was furnished with guests.
11 And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw
there a man which had not on a wedding garment:
12 And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in
hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.
13 Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and
foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness, there
shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
14 For many are called, but few are chosen.
Remember I told you I was going to tell you how Jesus Teaching in the
Temple Bible parables still 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 you're
supposed to send back, telling Him if you're gonna attend. You never
find the time to respond, because, well, you have a busy life, you
know. (This little reply card represents the time that you spend with
God, your faithfulness, your praise, your thankfulness, your serving
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 doesn't matter if
you have the little paper card. You didn't respond to Him.
Here's the Christian Teaching Bible good news. He sends you an
invitation every day!
Again the Pharisees found Jesus teaching in the Temple and they said
to Jesus ... 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, Caesar's.
So Jesus replied, Give to Caesar the things that are Caesar's and
give to God the things that are God's. They were surprised at Jesus'
words and went their way. The Christian Teaching Bible answer aced
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 brother's 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
Jesus answered, You have made a mistake not knowing the Scriptures,
or the power of God. In the resurrection, people don't marry and
aren't 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, haven't 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 the Jesus Teaching
in the Temple Bible truth. 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:
29 And Jesus answered him, The first
of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one
30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy
heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy
strength: this is the first commandment.
31 And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love
thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater
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 aren't far from the Kingdom of God.
After that, no man dared ask Jesus any question.
The Christian Teaching from Jesus Teaching in the Temple Bible trivia
continues ... While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked
them a question. Why do you think they say that Christ is David's
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 David's
Then while Jesus was teaching in the Temple, Jesus said
to His disciples:
46 Beware of the scribes, which desire to walk in long
robes, and love greetings in the markets, and the highest seats in
the synagogues, and the chief rooms at feasts;
47 Which devour widows' houses, and for a shew make
long prayers: the same shall receive greater damnation.
Then ... During the Jesus teaching in the Temple Bible story, 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, they've put in just a
small portion to God, but she of her poverty has put in all the
living that she had.
Wouldn't you have loved to be there for the Jesus teaching in the
Temple Bible events? To hear the emotion of Jesus teaching in the
Temple that He spoke with and to see the heartfelt expressions as
Jesus teaching in the Temple spoke words that would be engraved in
your mind forever? Don't forget to imagine that kind of fervor when
you read the Word, because the Holy
Spirit is in the Words that you read and He wants them remain in
your heart as to become a part of you.
