From Without; From Within

My Bible reading for this day was Mark 7.  When you read the whole chapter you will see the teaching Jesus gives us started over accusations from the religious elite of His day over eating with unwashed hands according to their traditions.  The following verses are the teachings Jesus gives...

In the Sight of the Shepherd

What Jesus Preached and Taught

What did Jesus preach?  What did He teach?  To find the answer to that you must read the Gospels.  The first thing He preached is repentance.  That is a word we evidently do not like to hear today; but a necessary for us, none the less. Hear the word from Matthew's Gospel... "From that time … Continue reading What Jesus Preached and Taught
