Lenten Devotional March 5

from daybyday.org


But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.                                                               - Matthew 14:3

Ye are the light of the world...Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven                  - Matthew 5:14-16


Men's Tuesday Night Bible Study

The format of the study is similar to a John Wesley class meeting: a small study-prayer-share group that meets on Tuesday evenings, 6:30 PM, BFUMC through May. Currently this men’s group is studying Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Jesus in the Gospels is a second generation Disciple Bible Study.  The Synoptics (Matthew, Mark and Luke) generally present the life of Jesus in the same ways and in the same settings, but at times they tell the same story differently or in a different setting. We will use these differences to detect some aspect of what each Gospel writer wants to highlight about Jesus. When the Gospel of John tells the same story as the Synoptics, we will look at John too. But since John’s Gospel has its distinct way of presenting Jesus, we will examine that Gospel at the end of our study. Please join us.
