as I grew older, praying became a different matter
to me. It's talking to God so needs to be done in
reverence. Jesus teaches us how to pray in this
message from Matthew. The passage became known as
The Lord's Prayer.
6:16-18 - Jesus Teaches about
Ever thought about what it
means to fast? Some churches in the US and other
parts of the world including the Baptist faith
still practice fasting of some sort.
During the time of Jesus,
fasting was a common ritual done in order to bring
people closer to God to find His will in their
lives. Many of the religious leaders abused the

power. This is where the story begins.

Him is another.

Baptist study from the Bible and learn how to apply
it to your life.

When it came to people, Jesus

here gives the verses and some insight about how to
apply them toward our daily lives.

What is fasting? There are
lots of variations of how to fast - and why but
this Bible study lesson shows the right and wrong
way - and reasons. Fasting is a tradition passed on
by many religions and cultures and is still

Bible study focuses on why the disciples of Jesus
did not fast when he was present.
9:18-34 - Jesus Heals Bleeding Woman, Blind Man And
Restores Life To Young Girl
Jesus healed many during his
ministry and these chapters in Matthew show just a
few. But, the most relevant healing Christ
performed was the healing of our sin. This study
lesson from the Bible tells the story of hope and
faith. If we only ask ..
9:35-38 - Jesus Asks For Prayer For
God could certainly do it all
alone, without our help. He is absolutely powerful
enough and has the power. But, as we will learn in
this lesson for study from Matthew, He allows us to
be his workers to help tell
others about Jesus Christ
as he commanded in the great commission. Isn't God
10:1-16 - Jesus Sends Out The Twelve
In these passages from
Matthew, we will learn the names of the twelve

Persecution - Should We?

considerably and he began to wonder if Jesus really
was the Savior.
11:20-30 - Rest for the
We all have our own personal
burdens we carry through life. Jesus promises rest
for the soul to make these situations easier to
bear. All we have to do is ask and believe in
Christ. Read the study lesson from the Book of
Matthew to see where Christ leads you ...
12:1-14 - Jesus and Working on the
Christ worked in accordance
with God's will but the Pharisees were so entangled
in tradition they could not see that working for
God on the Sabbath was acceptable. No compassion
meant no forgiveness. This Baptist Bible study
lesson takes a look at how we can become trapped by
traditions too - if we're not careful.
12:15-37 - Pharisees Accuse Jesus of Being Under
Satan - The Unpardonable Sin
Large crowds began following
Jesus after they learned of his miracles and great
healing power. Some truly wanted to follow him and
repent, some were just "part of the crowd" out of
curiosity and some, like the Pharisees wanted to
try and trap him as they had attempted many times
before . What is the unpardonable sin ? Christ
12:38-45 - Pharisees Demand Miracles from Christ -
Asking for Signs
I constantly see on TV
documentaries where scientists and others try to
prove (or disprove) the Bible. It's all very
interesting but they are missing the focus of the
Jewish and Christian religion.
Do you ever ask for signs or
from God in order to
believe in Him?
Some people need proof
for everything. If we tell something out of the
ordinary, they'll respond with; "Prove it." Well,
becoming a believer in Christ doesn't work that
way. Although we have proof from The Bible, faith
is the final answer.
12:46-50 - The True Family of
In case you haven't thought
about it lately, we are blessed with two families
.. physical and spiritual. What's the difference?

about his spiritual family and how we should look
at these two relationship situations.
13:1-23 - Jesus Explains the Four Soils
Like Johnny Appleseed this
parable from Jesus explains how we need to "plant
good seeds" so that some will fall on "good soil"

news about Jesus Christ. Learning more and
studying the Bible is a good way to live a
better life and find answers to the difficult
13:24-43 - Jesus Explains the Weeds and Mustard
In these parables Jesus talks
about the end times and what will happen to good
and evil. The good people who are followers of God
will be taken into heaven and the bad, the
followers of Satan, will be thrown into the fire
and burned. This Matthew Bible study passage does a
good job of explaining heaven and hell.
13:44-52 - Jesus Explains the Kingdom of
These parables from teachings
of Jesus in the New Testament are about hidden
treasure, the pearl merchant and fishing nets. Each
one has a life lesson for us and teaches about the
kingdom of heaven.
13:53-58 - The People of Nazareth Reject
Ever been rejected - by
people who know you? This Bible study lesson tells
how Jesus was rejected when he went home to bring
his message to the town he grew up in. Nazareth was
Jesus' hometown and, just as it is today, people
find it hard to believe someone famous can come
from a small town. To these people, Christ was just
the "carpenter's son".
14:1-12 - The Killing of John the
Herod thought of Jesus as
John the Baptist resurrected because of his
miracles. He was afraid of harming the prophet
because of the people so why did Herod kill John
14:13-21 - Loaves and Fishes - Jesus Feeds Five
Five thousand people fed from
five loaves and two fish. -- One of the greatest
miracles in the Bible performed by Christ but there
is at least one feat that was greater... Our
salvation. Read the Bible study lesson to learn
more about this miracle.
14:22-33 - Bible Study, Jesus Walks on
This Bible lesson is about
faith and hope when times are hard. Jesus walking
on water is a miracle in itself but, when Peter did
it, the power of God became evident. When we "sink"
because of our situation, let's remember that
Christ saved Peter and He will save us too.
14:34-36 - Bible Study about the Healing Ministry
More verses about the healing
ministry of Christ.
15:1-20 - Jesus Teaches about Purity in this Bible
This section is loaded with
guidelines of how we are to speak and act. Many of
us become so concerned with going to church and
being a "good Christian" that we forget the two
most important commandments Christ gave .. Love God
and love each other. Purity is not what we take in
but what we show in actions and words.
15:21-39 - Jesus Performs Miracles and Teaches Us
Jesus performed many miracles
during His ministry and the crowds marveled. But,
in this Bible study lesson we will focus on how
Christ introduced a lesson for us about getting rid
of prejudice within this passage.
16:1-4 - Should We Ask for a Sign from the
Do you sometimes have doubts
about your faith and wish you could see a miracle
from the sky to prove Gods existence or to have a
more stable belief in Christ? Me too. But, the key
word here is faith which is based on belief and not
always on seeing or hearing or touching. Jesus
explains in a Matthew Bible lesson.
16:5-12 - "Beware of the Leaven of the Pharisees
and Sadducees" Warned Jesus
Is there a such thing as a
little bit of sin? Jesus explains here that, even
as Christians, we can do small things that will
affect a whole crowd of people.. Even a

17:24-27 - Peter Opens the Fish's Mouth and Finds a
Peter finds a coin in a
fish's mouth but there is much more to this Bible
lesson. It's about tribute and whether or not taxes
should be paid. Also, learn that God wants our
participation in His will for our lives.
18:1-6 - Who is the Greatest
The disciples were caught up
in trying to make a high place for themselves in
the kingdom of heaven and wanted Jesus to tell them

should do ..

This Scripture reading takes
us into the world of marriage, civil rights of
women and divorce. See what Jesus says about
getting married and
Jesus Loves the Little
Sometimes we make things
complicated as Christians but Jesus made it very
clear as to how to follow him. Children trust
others which is the way we should approach God as
shown in these verses from Matthew.
Jesus and the Rich Young
I know you've heard the story
where Jesus tells the rich man about the camel and
the eye of the needle but, there is always more to
learn when studying the Bible. The New Testament
reveals many secrets and skimming the surface might
be confusing about how to get to heaven.
20:1-16 - Jesus Talks about the Workers Who are
The New Testament reveals
many secrets about how to get to heaven. Christ
explains about the kingdom of heaven in this
parable about the workers hired by the landowner.
Should everyone do equal work for equal pay? Jesus
says this ethic does not apply to heaven seekers.
Jesus Tells about His
Death the Third Time
The Easter story takes many
turns and events happen on a timeline. In this
portion Jesus predicts His death for the third
time. The disciples do not fully understand this
until the resurrection.
Jesus Talks about Serving
In our efforts to follow
Christ we sometimes forget our main objective.
Sure, we have to do the church things like
attending regularly and maybe singing in the choir
but what did Jesus tell us to do? Serve other
people. This is a part of our commission from Him.
20:29-34 - The Miracle of the Blind

Jesus rides a donkey triumphantly into Jerusalem on
a day which is now referred to as Palm Sunday. The
famous ride was the beginning of the crucifixion of

Jesus Drives the Money
Changers from the Temple
In Bible times the people
came from all over to worship in the temple at
Jerusalem. So, foreign currency exchange was needed
as it is in many countries today. The money
changers were taking advantage and becoming rich by
shortchanging the patrons with the rates they gave.
Jesus became angry at this practice and we can see
His frustration in this
The Withered Fig
This lesson from the Bible is
not just about Jesus and the withering of a fig
tree. It is about prayer and having faith. Many
times we pray for something but don't really
believe that God can answer. Have faith and receive
the blessings God has to give.
Chief Priests and Elders
Question the Authority of
We see it all the time. Our
children are constantly challenging our authority
and finding what they can "get away with". But what
about us? Do we challenge the authority of
The Parable of the Two

Jesus Tells the Parable
of the Wicked Tenants or Why Accept Christ
Jesus told many parables for
our benefit and this is one more, But it is
compelling because it answers the important

late to ask Jesus into your heart.

feast as Christ tells it in Matthew explains how

22:34-40 - What is The Greatest
Moses brought the ten
commandments to the Israelites before he died and
these laws helped to establish a nation from
wanderers. But, over time the religious leaders
began to add to the commands and explain every
little detail in how they were to be obeyed. Jesus
came and made them simple again.
Who is the Christ? Jesus
Asks the Pharisees
Those who don't know Him and
even some people who do all ask the same question
of who is Jesus Christ. The Pharisees asked and
Scripture tells us the answer in this lesson.
Jesus Warns the Crowds
against the Religious

Pharisees have seated themselves in the chair of
Moses." What does this mean? Well, partially it
means they had placed themselves high above the
people and became leaders and Rabbis. But Jesus

Second Coming on Mount Of
Ever wonder or worry about
the end of time? I don't dwell on it but yes,

what to look for. We should remain watchful but not
worry about the end times as much as trying to live
our lives for Christ.
24:26-35 - How Jesus Tells About His
If Christ comes back today
are you ready? Am I? Jesus explains clearly in
these verses from Matthew what to look for and to
ignore the false prophets. Let's renew our faith in
Him and be ready when He

the parable of the 10 bridesmaids. Jesus explains
how we are like the brides maids and He is like the

Jesus Points Out Judas
Iscariot At The Last Supper
It is called communion by
many Baptist and other Christian churches today,
especially in the Southern USA but the last supper
seems to fit in this case of deception and the
betrayal of Jesus by Judas Iscariot.
Communion is the word used by
many believers today, especially in the South. We
have the Lord's Supper at our church incrementally
but many just go through the motions without
thinking about what Christ did for them - and us.

This was the most agonizing
time for Jesus before the crucifixion and He still
prayed for God's will to be done in His life.
26:47-56 - Judas Betrays Jesus and He is

the fulfillment of Scripture was happening quickly
as Judas betrays Jesus and He is arrested. The
disciples, who swore allegiance, ran and went into
hiding while Christ suffered.
