    As in all things, this month you will be looking at the beginnings in the life of Jesus Christ.  Before we get too far into the story, you need to understand the world in which Jesus came into.  Jesus didn't just drop into a void,  There were historical and cultural things that need to be understood in order to get an accurate picture of who Jesus was.  We will be talking about that.  We end this month talking about the entry into the world of Jesus' cousin, John, the Baptist.

    This month you will be reading about the ministry of Jesus' cousin, John the Baptist.  You will also be reading about the beginning of the ministry of Jesus.  Most people believe Jesus called His disciples only once, but by the end of the month, you will be seeing the actual the calling of the first 6 disciples.  He ministered with those disciples for 1/3 of His ministry.


    This month begins with Jesus' ministry in hostile Samaria and into the Early Galilean Ministry.  You will read about the 2nd and 3rd calling of disciples.  In order to begin pouring HIs life into these 12 disciples, Jesus gives us His Sermon on the Mount.  Most of the teaching will be done next month, but in March we will be introducing the Sermon.


    This month is entirely devoted to Jesus' sermon on the Mount.  This is Discipleship 101.  If you ever wanted to understand what it means to be a disciple of Jesus, this is where you will find out.  You will gain a new understanding of what it means to be good in God's eyes.

    At the beginning of this month, we will be closing out our discussion of Jesus' amazing Sermon on the Mount.  As we continue the rest of this month, we will be following Jesus as He travels through the region of Galilee preaching and healing the people.  The real question we will answer is what will the reaction be to all of Jesus' miracles by the Jewish leadership?  That question will be answered this month and will cause a great transition in Jesus' ministry.


    We begin this month in Gentile Decapolis where Jesus is ministering the Kingdom of God.  Then we will travel back to Galilee for what is called the Later Galilean Ministry of Jesus where He encounters a more determined opposition from the Jewish leaders.  As the tension builds, Jesus takes his disciples and retreats north into Caesarea Philippi where he spends some alone time with His disciples.


    We find ourselves at the beginning of this month in the high country of Caesarea Philippi where Jesus asks a very important question.  There is a time where the disciples will spend too much time jockeying for position in the upcoming Kingdom.  Jesus has started talking about His future date with the cross and the disciples sense a change and they want to be the one in charge.


    This month we find Jesus in Jerusalem ministering at the heart of Judaism.  We will see Him at the Feast of Tabernacles and He stays in Jerusalem after the feast to minister, to heal and to teach the Jews about their Messiah.  The Feast of Tabernacles was a pilgrimage feast with saw the population of Jerusalem swell to many times its normal size.  The city would provide Jesus with a ready-made audience.


    We ended last month concluding Jesus' final ministry in the region of Galilee.  This month we will see Jesus and His followers traveling to the south and east of the Jordan River over to a region called Perea.  Here Jesus will teach His 2nd group of parables and see to the needs of a couple of famous Bible characters by the names of Bartimaeus and Zacchaeus.

    As we close out the Perean ministry of Jesus Christ, we will follow Him into Jerusalem, where He will begin the final week of His life.  We will witness the Jewish leadership in a failed attempt to discredit Jesus with the crowds.  With the population of Jerusalem swelling to 4 times normal, the leadership can't eliminate the threat Jesus posed without the risk of a riot.  As we close out this month, we will meet Jesus in the upper room to begin our look at the last supper.
