  • discipleship
    • the rich man
      • what must do is receive  eternal life , follow commandments
      • the rich man says i have all my life, Jesus looked straight at him, go sell everything you have, give to poor and you will have riches in heaven (face fell for he was very rich man
      • shows cost of discipleship because..
        • keep commandments
        • be prepared to give up everything, riches, fam, possessions
        • rewards of discipleship make it worthwhile as they will receive 100X as much + eternal life
        • PROBLEMS
          • people want to be rich, brings security and want best for families, enjoy material pleasure
          • this teaching asks people to delay rewards until go to heaven = may live unsuccessful life
    • parable of the tenants
      • Jesus is prophesying his death
        • TODAY
          • Christians recognise they are Gods messengers
          • they may face rejection for their faith
          • parable sums up gods plan for humanity
          • Jesus' death and resurrection where people who believe in him can be reconciled
      • Jewish leaders will reject messengers + then son by killing him
      • instead of taking over - they will be replaced as gods people
      • capstone = reference to psalm
      • Jesus appears to be worthless but turns out to be the cornerstone
      • shows jesus is messiah
      • Jewish leaders would have understood what Jesus had meant = angry
    • spirit cast out be Jesus
      • large crowd arguing, Jesus says what's the problem, master I brought my son to you, foaming, rigid
      • I asked your disciples to cast it out but they failed, what an unbelieving generation - how long must I be with you? 'everything is possible for him who believes, child father said I do believe '
        • SIGNIFICANCE
          • shows disciples could not cast out the spirit beacsye yhey had not yet understood true meaning of prayer + self-sacrifice for disciples or meaning of Jesus predits his passion
          • they had not yet fully realised who Jesus was and did not therefore have enough faith
          • PROBLEMS
            • if the disciples can't do this when Jesus is with them how hard must it be now
            • if it is difficult to believe prayer leads to faith miracles - need a lot of faith to believe in prayer, hard teaching as how can the disciples be so lacking in faith
            • same may say boy just had a mental illness
      • command you come out, disciples ask why couldn't drive out demon, Jesus said only faith can do this
  • PROBLEMS
    • people want to be rich, brings security and want best for families, enjoy material pleasure
    • this teaching asks people to delay rewards until go to heaven = may live unsuccessful life
