Exegesis (/ˌɛksəˈdʒiːsɪs/; from the Greek ἐξήγησις from ἐξηγεῖσθαι, "to lead out") is an explanation of a text, particularly a religious text. Traditionally the term was used primarily for work with the Bible; however, in modern usage "biblical exegesis" is used for greater specificity to distinguish it from any other broader critical text explanation. Exegesis is the expository investigation into the history and origins of the text, but may include the study of the historical and cultural backgrounds for the author, the text, and the original audience.

The miraculous draught of fishes at the lake of Gennesaret, Luke 5:1-11. Christ heals a leper, Luke 5:12-14. No leper has been healed since Naaman the Syrian by Elisha in II Kings 5.

He wants to heal the religious leaders Luke 5:17 cf: Isaiah 42:1ff He heals a paralytic person, at which the scribes and Pharisees murmur, but the people glorify God, Luke 5:17-26. He calls the publican Levi, who makes a feast for Christ, to which he invites a great number of publicans and others, at which the scribes and Pharisees murmur, and our Lord vindicates his conduct, Luke 5:27-32. The question about fasting answered, Luke 5:33-35. The parable of the new piece of cloth put on the old garment, and the new wine in old bottles, Luke 5:36-39

The Birth of Jesus

  Audio Sermon (MP3)
  Written Lesson (PDF)

The Hebrew word She-owl is translated into Greek as Hades & into English as Hell. All these words mean the same place which is the place of the dead. During Old Testament times it had 2 parts, torment which was the place of the unbelieving dead, separated from Abraham's bosom, the place of the believing dead. The Rich man & Lazarus cf: Luke 16:19-31; The Rebellion of Korah in which Korah went down alive into the pit took place about 1,447 BC cf: Numbers 16:26-40; Later King David wrote Psalm 88 about 1,000 BC so it had been about 500 years since Korah went down alive into the pit & Psalm 88 is a psalm of Korah in Hell. Korah has been dead almost 500 years & hasn't figured out yet his situation is permanent. Romans 2:1-12 cf: Matthew 10:28 and Matthew 25:31-46.

The Scriptures

  Audio Sermon (MP3)
  Written Lesson (PDF)

It is used to describe books of the Holy Bible Hebrews taught Christ brought a new & better Testament, Hebrews 7:22, 8:6-13, 9:15. OT is divided into three groups: Law, 1st 5 books of Moses known as Torah & Pentateuch. Prophets, 21 books - major & minor OT Prophets. Writings - 13. The NT of 27 books that naturally divide into 4 parts: 4 Gospels, Acts, Epistles & Revelation. Epistles are 21 books of teaching. 13 are Pauline Epistles. 8 Epistles called General Epistles written by other Apostles/Prophets. Hebrews written by unknown writer. The Bible is a remarkable book. Its Teachings Divinely Inspired. Non-believers account for the Bible on natural rather than supernatural grounds. The doctrine of Inspiration asserts that Bible revelation did not & could not originate in the mind of man. The Bible claims to be "inspired" meaning "God breathed" cf: II Timothy 3:16. It claims Holy men of God "spake" "carried along" by Holy Spirit, II Peter 1:20. Scriptures did not originate in the human mind. They are not a human product & cannot be accounted for on natural grounds. Bible miracles are contrary to ordinary human experience, but they are not contrary to reason. With God, miracles & the extraordinary are not contrary to reason. It isn't that the Bible is different from other religions because man evolved in his thinking & became better. Concepts found in the Bible are completely differ from ancient world. It is not that the Bible is simply a better revelation than Egyptian, Greek, Babylonian, or Roman religion. Truth is: Bible is altogether true while others are altogether false. A fallen Titan named Atlas doesn't really hold the world on his back... it's a lie.

II Thessalonians 2:1--13, Who in history could possibly be a man ruling in the church Roman Catholic 606AD Boniface III took the title of Pope (pappas) or Universal Bishop of Roman Catholic Church. Colossians 1:18, Matthew16:16-18, II Timothy 2:15, Matthew 23:9, Ephesians 2:8. Matthew 6:7. Shortly Rome made laws & many truths of God were changed into the teaching of men: cf: Matthew 15:9, Latin to be only language of scriptures. Call no man Father cf: Matthew 23:9. Saved by grace not works cf: Ephesians 2:8. Mary not mediator between God & man cf: I Timothy 2:5. Ask in Jesus' name not Mary's cf: John 16:23-26. "Our Father" & "Hail Mary" vain repetitions cf: Matthew 6:7. Hell has no halfway house called Purgatory cf: Luke 16:19-31. No such thing as separate priesthood, all Christians are priests cf: I Peter 2:5. Bishops must be the husband of one wife cf: I Timothy 3:1-7 & Titus 1:5-8. Celibacy is a doctrine of devils cf: I Timothy 4:1-3, Pope is anti-christ cf: Colossians 1:18. The Greek prefix anti means instead of or in place of & carries the idea of substitution. Anything instead of Christ, in place of Christ or substituted for Christ is anti-Christ. Anti-christ has been here all along cf: I John 2:18-19, I John 4:1-3 & II John 1:7. Pope led great falling away & is man of sin cf: II Thessalonians 2:1-12. Rome sold indulgences & built St Peter's Basilica making merchandise of people's sins cf: II Peter 2:2-33

The Second Coming of Christ & Our being "caught up together:" The coming of Christ is one event. There is no secret-rapture, the word is not used in the Bible. This make believe non-sense was dreamed up by a man named Darbey in 1831 and was picked up by "pre-trib rapture" enthusiast and proclaimed as truth by Baptist & Pentecostals. At the end of time Christ will come again, Matthew 25:31-46, raise the dead and sit in judgment John 5:21-29, we will be caught up to go with Christ, Pre-trib rapture use I Thessalonians 4:13-14 as proof text but that is at the resurrection which is the last day John 6:40 Saints accompany cf: Jude 14 & The coming of Christ will be accompanied by great signs & wonders, such as at the giving of the Law, cf: Exodus 19:16-19, Christians who are alive will be changed I Corinthians 15:50-52, I Thessalonians 4:16 dead rise, V:17 we are "caught up together", I Thessalonians 5:1 cf: Acts 1:7-8, I Thessalonians 5:2 cf: Matthew24:42-44 & I Thessalonians 5:3-11. this earth will be burned up & we go to New Heavens & a New Earth: Revelations 21:1-2 & 16, & I Peter 3

The Parable of the Talents

  Audio Sermon (MP3)
  Written Lesson (PDF)

In this parable of our Lord, four things may be considered: I. The master who distributes the talents. His kindness. He distributes these goods diversely. He distributes his talents with Wisdom. II. The servants who improved their talents. These persons are termed slaves, such as were the property of the master, who might dispose of them as he pleased. Then he that had received the five talents went and traded ... Matthew 25:16. The work was speedily begun; The work was perseveringly carried on; after a long time the lord of those servants cometh, Matthew 25:19.  Their work was crowned with success. Luke 2:52. They were ready to give in a joyful account when their master came and called for them Matthew 25:21. III. The servant who buried his talent Matthew 25:18. See the ingratitude of this servant , his idleness, his gross error, his injustice. Hear the absurdity of his reasoning Matthew 25:24. IV. His punishment. He is punished with an everlasting separation from God and the glory of his power. Cast forth the unprofitable servant, Matthew 25:30. Let him have nothing but darkness, who refused to walk in the light: let him have nothing but misery - weeping and gnashing of teeth, who has refused the happiness which God provided for him.

The Parable of the Ten Virgins

  Audio Sermon (MP3)
  Written Lesson (PDF)

"Virgins" - Denoting purity of Christian doctrine and character. "Five of them were wise", or, provident; "five were foolish", which might be translated careless; Matthew 25:1-12. The state of Jews and professing Christians - the state of the visible Church at the time of the destruction of Jerusalem, and in the day of judgment: for the parable appears to relate to both those periods. And particularly at the time in which Christ shall come to judge the world, it shall appear what kind of reception his Gospel has met with. This parable, or something very like it, is found in the Jewish records: in a treatise entitled Reshith Chocmah, we read thus: "... Repent whilst thou hast strength to do it, whilst thy lamp burns, and thy oil is not extinguished; for if thy lamp be gone out, thy oil will profit thee nothing." The necessity of being constantly prepared to appear before God, Matthew 25:13. "watch therefore" If to watch be to employ ourselves chiefly about the business of our salvation, alas! how few of those who are called Christians are there who do watch! How many who slumber! How many who are asleep! How many seized with a lethargy! How many quite dead! "wherein the Son of man cometh" these words are omitted by most versions. We must be ready, Always. Amen.

  Written Lesson (PDF)

Jesus plainly says these things would take place in that generation - 40 years Matthew 24:34. It was 40 years between His crucifixion in 30 AD & destruction of Jerusalem by Titus of Rome in 70AD. What we have is the use of figurative language such as Isaiah 13 where God describes the destruction of Babylon in the same figurative language. Just a metaphor for I'll knock your lights out. Jesus uses this metaphor to describe the coming destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD cf: Isaiah 13:10 with Matthew 24:29. Matthew 24:1-11 cf; II Corinthians 11:13-15, Matthew 24:12-14, cf Mark 16:20, Romans 10:13-18, Colossians 1:5-6, Colossians 1:23 & I Thessalonians1:6-8, Matthew 24:15 cf: Daniel 9:1-2 cf, Jeremiah 25:10 & 29:10 & Daniel 9:24-27. 69 "weeks" of years is Sabbath years or 7 years. 69 X 7= 483 years till Messiah Comes. 457BC Commandment rebuild Jerusalem less 483 years is 26AD the year Jesus began His ministry. Jesus preached 3 1/2 years was cut off and thereby caused the sacrifice in the temple to cease having any efficacy the last 3 1/2 years is reckoned from 66 AD. Jews rebelled to 70AD when with the abomination of desolation the Roman army surrounded Jerusalem & showed their idolatrous standards (like a flag) with an eagle upon a pole. The word coming often used Old Testament describe God Coming in Judgment cf: Isaiah 13 same language used for Babylon, Ezekiel 32:1ff same language about Egypt & Joel 2:1ff uses the same language to prophecy the destruction of Judah by Babylon & the destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans in 70 AD Note after Spirit poured out Joel 2:28-32

The Church: A Fellowship of Believers is Born

  Audio Sermon (MP3)
  Written Lesson (PDF)

After Peter Preaches the 1st Gospel Sermon he sums up the sermon in Acts 2:36 Jesus was made both Lord and Christ. The people cry "What must we do?" V:37 and Peter gives them 2 imperatives "repent and be baptized" which are figures of speech called a synecdoche in which a part is represented as a whole. Note belief, faith & confessing Christ as Lord is left out of the figure of speech. Much like saying "I'm just working to get a roof over my head" in which "roof" stands for a whole house. Therefore the terms of salvation are everything God has said in the N.T. to be saved. The 2 Promises are "remission of sins and the gift (ordinary) of the Holy Spirit. Acts 2:39 shows the perpetual nature of the plan of salvation discussed above. Acts 2:40 better translated "be saved or allow yourself to be saved" by coming to God in the appointed way. Acts 2:41 3,000 baptized and saved on Pentecost Vs: 3,000 killed at the giving of the Law. Acts 2:42 primitive original Christian worship is described. Cf: II Timothy 2:2 Acts 2:43 The Apostles continue to work "wonders and signs" Acts 2:44-46 special gifts were necessary to care for the first 3,000 while they stayed in Jerusalem and were taught. Acts 2:47 The Lord added to the Church daily such as should be saved

Baptism of the Holy Spirit Matthew 3:11-12, John the baptizer Luke 24:49 Jesus says it is a promise of the Father & they will have "power from on high" & in Acts 1:8 Jesus says that the power is "The Holy Ghost". Acts 1:26 & 2:1. Chapter & verse divisions were not in the original Bible. Here we have unfortunate chapter break. Acts 2:1 must be read with 1:26 to understand who's being spoken of. "they were all with one accord" The word "they" is an antecedent. Antecedents always refer back to the last-named noun. Which is: "Mathias & he was numbered with the eleven apostles." Thus "Apostles" is the antecedent of "they" in Acts 2:1 Many make the mistake thinking that the 120 in Acts 1:15 is spoken of in Acts 2:1. Acts 2:2 "as of a rushing mighty wind" It was not a rushing mighty wind, it was the same sound. Acts 2:3 "cloven tongues like as of fire" Similarity denies that it is the same. It was not actual tongues of fire, it was "like as of fire".  Acts 1:4 the result of this baptism is the apostles' speaking in tongues, languages they had not studied cf: Acts 2:1ff. Acts 1:5-21 A study of "the last days" cf: Joel 2:28ff.

When everything he says comes to pass cf: Deuteronomy 18:21-22. Only God knows and can tell the future cf: Isaiah 41:2122 & 46:9-10. As much as the Jews today try to blame the Romans it was the Jews who pre-meditated the murder of their Messiah John 1:11-12 & 11:47-50. The Suffering Servant. The Jews claim this 53rd chapter of Isaiah is talking about the suffering of the nation of Israel. In this chapter, the personal pronoun "He" is used 18 times, "His" is used 13 times, & "Him" is used 10 times, which means God used personal pronouns 41 times to prove this coming Messiah will suffer for the sins of the people.

Additionally the Messiah is to bring in "everlasting righteousness" referring to the gospel and the church dispensation cf: Romans 1:16-17 & Romans 3:21-26. Daniel - 70 Weeks of Years Daniel 9:1 & 9:24-27, Sixty-Nine weeks of years until the Messiah comes.  69 times 7 years equals 483 years. The Principal Commandment was in 457 BC minus 483 years equals 26 AD the very year Jesus is baptized by John & begins His public ministry being "about 30". Luke 3:23.
