WEEK 1  In the Beginning (4).jpg


Mark 5:21-43

In our first two weeks, we saw a glimpse of God’s plan of redemption unfolding through a system of sacrifice and prophecy that foretold Jesus’s sacrifice for sin on the cross. This week we pick up 700 years later, skipping to the later days of Jesus’ ministry on earth.

  • Pray to see the power of Jesus today

  • Read Mark 5:21-43

    •  What do you learn about Jesus in these verses?

    • What do you learn about faith?

    • Where do you need Jesus to heal you? Have you asked Him?

  • Praise the God who heals and gives life. Ask Him to bring new life and healing into your life where you need it.

John 11:1- 44


John 11:45-54

We’ve seen this week that Jesus has power over death, even his own, which He could avoid since He was sinless. Yesterday we studied the account of Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead. Today we see that not everyone was happy with Jesus healing and giving life.

  • Pray for God's word to be the healing power in your life.

    • What were the different reactions to the healing of Lazarus (v. 45, 47, 53)?

    • Why specifically did the leaders want to stop Jesus (v. 47-48)?

    • Reread verses 50-52. What is the significance of Caiaphas’ words?

  • Pray for your reaction to the power of Jesus and ask God who in your life needs to know this power so that they might believe.

Matthew 12:39-40, 16:21, and 17:22-23

  • Read Matthew 12:39-40, 16:21, and 17:22-23

    • What is the common theme of these passages?
