The Life of Jesus | March 2014
As Jesus travelled from town to town, He constantly met people with great needs. It didn’t seem to matter whether He was in a remote region, a public area or a private residence. Without fail, the sick and needy came seeking Him. Jesus always had compassion on them and healed them. This is what Matthew wrote in his Gospel.

The word concerning our name is not coming to us directly from the Lord. In the first case, the testimony is written upon the heart of the messenger. Jesus said, ‘Behold, I am sending you prophets and wise men and scribes’. He was not referring to the scribes of the Old Covenant. Jesus was speaking about scribes of the New Covenant; that is, messengers in the church age. The messenger is the scribe. The psalmist declared, ‘My tongue is the pen of a ready writer’.

Sons of the Most High

The pattern of perfection
By Victor Hall, David Falk & David Baker
The Lord commanded the prophet Ezekiel to ‘describe the temple to the house of Israel, that they may be ashamed of their iniquities; and let them measure the plan’. Ezek 43:10. The literal Hebrew meaning of ‘plan’ is the ‘pattern of perfection’.
Stewarding your vine and fig tree
By David Falk
The Scripture uses the symbolism of ‘a vine and fig tree’ to describe the generative capacity of a man’s house and work in the kingdom of God. A businessman has been given a ‘vine and fig
tree’ in the Lord’s vineyard for the purpose of generating increase
and resources for the Lord’s house.
By David V Hall, Luke Pomery, Kane McNally, Michael Hall and William Olds
The story of our sonship is that we are born, first of all, as ‘natural’ sons of men. In the unfolding of God’s purpose, we are first ‘natural’ before we become ‘spiritual’ by new birth.
