Jesus’ parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus is a difficult one to understand. Jay Mayock and Tim Young delve into the background and meaning of the parable. Out of this study comes a deeper appreciation of how and why Jesus was condemning the Pharisees and Sadducees with such a story and what we are to practically learn from it.
We have all experienced falling asleep at night and waking up in the morning refreshed to start a new day. God uses sleep and awakening as a metaphor in the Bible to describe death. Aaron McKee and Tim Young go through this essential Bible study on sleep and how it has a wonderful message of hope beyond death. Our key verse is from 1 Corinthians 15:51-52, “Behold! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed.”
