1 Conner Woods (Matthew 6:19-24): Jesus’ purpose of teaching was to equip everyone with the knowledge of how to live a righteous life through the Father. In these verses, Jesus talks about how we can’t put all of our time and effort into worldly possessions as they are not eternal. He says in Matthew 6:20, “ but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal”, meaning we must set our eyes on Heaven, for that is where the real treasure is, not here on earth on material things which are temporary. This teaching is showing the connection of Jesus to God, which is the intention of sending him to be on earth. It is relevant to other worldviews because it is the instructions for how to live eternal life and can be understood by those who believe in what Jesus is saying in this passage, but also what he did on the cross. Gage/Noah: (Luke 15:1-32): In Luke 15:1-32 Jesus preaches through parables. The Parable of the Lost Sheep, The Parable of the Lost Coin and The Parable of the Lost Son all have the same thing in common. While all three are different they have one main focus on forgiveness and its importance. Jesus preaches that we celebrate when one sinner becomes found again and repents, we do not celebrate the devotion of those committed to God but rather celebrate when someone who was once lost is now found. This is relevant to other worldviews because the Christian worldview preaches for forgiveness and that no matter what the sin is, it can be forgiven through ones repentance to God. This shows that Jesus believed in forgiveness and was grateful to welcome in those that were once lost but are now found through the ways of God. Idongesit Udoh (Matthew 7: 15-23) A. What was Jesus point in the teaching? In this teaching Jesus is warning his followers to beware of false teachers/Pastors/Prophets/Disciples. Believers need to know that not all these people are true and just in the eye of God. Some will deceive the believers and lead them into the wrong way which will lead to hell fire (eternal condemnation and destruction). Some are true and those we must follow. He gave example of Pharisees and Scribes who were such false teachers that they came in sheep’s clothing pretending to do the work of the father but truly were serving themselves. He calls them wolves in Sheep’s clothing. That believers should be careful that they are not deceived by these false teachers. He taught us that by their fruits we shall know them, that we cannot gather grapes from thorns and figs from thistle trees, that corrupt trees bring forth evil fruits i.e. Corrupt Prophets/Pastors/Teachers/Disciples bring forth corrupt believers. Jesus also warns that those bad fruits (corrupt teachers and believers) will be hewn down and thrown into fire on judgement day. The day that the evil will be swept away permanently. That not everyone who says Lord, Lord will
