Healed by Faith

International Sunday School June 20, 201 Summer Quarter #3

Matthew 9:18-26 (NIV)  While he was saying this, a synagogue leader came and knelt before him and said, “My daughter has just died. But come and put your hand on her, and she will live.”  (19)  Jesus got up and went with him, and so did his disciples.  (20)  Just then a woman who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak.  (21)  She said to herself, “If I only touch his cloak, I will be healed.”  (22)  Jesus turned and saw her. “Take heart, daughter,” he said, “your faith has healed you.” And the woman was healed at that moment.  (23)  When Jesus entered the synagogue leader’s house and saw the noisy crowd and people playing pipes,  (24)  he said, “Go away. The girl is not dead but asleep.” But they laughed at him.  (25)  After the crowd had been put outside, he went in and took the girl by the hand, and she got up.  (26)  News of this spread through all that region.

Humble Faith

International Sunday School October 20, 2019 Fall #8

Luke 7:1-10 When Jesus had finished saying all this to the people who were listening, he entered Capernaum. 2 There a centurion’s servant, whom his master valued highly, was sick and about to die. 3 The centurion heard of Jesus and sent some elders of the Jews to him, asking him to come and heal his servant. 4 When they came to Jesus, they pleaded earnestly with him, “This man deserves to have you do this, 5 because he loves our nation and has built our synagogue.” 6 So Jesus went with them.

He was not far from the house when the centurion sent friends to say to him: “Lord, don’t trouble yourself, for I do not deserve to have you come under my roof. 7 That is why I did not even consider myself worthy to come to you. But say the word, and my servant will be healed. 8 For I myself am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. I tell this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and that one, ‘Come,’ and he comes. I say to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.”

9 When Jesus heard this, he was amazed at him, and turning to the crowd following him, he said, “I tell you, I have not found such great faith even in Israel.” 10 Then the men who had been sent returned to the house and found the servant well.

Justice and Sabbath Laws

Matthew 12:1-14  At that time Jesus went through the grainfields on the Sabbath. His disciples were hungry, and they began to pluck heads of grain and to eat.  (2)  But when the Pharisees saw it, they said to him, “Look, your disciples are doing what is not lawful to do on the Sabbath.”  (3)  He said to them, “Have you not read what David did when he was hungry, and those who were with him:  (4)  how he entered the house of God and ate the bread of the Presence, which it was not lawful for him to eat nor for those who were with him, but only for the priests?  (5)  Or have you not read in the Law how on the Sabbath the priests in the temple profane the Sabbath and are guiltless?  (6)  I tell you, something greater than the temple is here.  (7)  And if you had known what this means, ‘I desire mercy, and not sacrifice,’ you would not have condemned the guiltless.  (8)  For the Son of Man is lord of the Sabbath.”  (9)  He went on from there and entered their synagogue.  (10)  And a man was there with a withered hand. And they asked him, “Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath?”—so that they might accuse him.  (11)  He said to them, “Which one of you who has a sheep, if it falls into a pit on the Sabbath, will not take hold of it and lift it out?  (12)  Of how much more value is a man than a sheep! So it is lawful to do good on the Sabbath.”  (13)  Then he said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” And the man stretched it out, and it was restored, healthy like the other.  (14)  But the Pharisees went out and conspired against him, how to destroy him.

Faith in Jesus

Acts 3:11-21  While he clung to Peter and John, all the people, utterly astounded, ran together to them in the portico called Solomon’s.  (12)  And when Peter saw it he addressed the people: “Men of Israel, why do you wonder at this, or why do you stare at us, as though by our own power or piety we have made him walk?  (13)  The God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, the God of our fathers, glorified his servant Jesus, whom you delivered over and denied in the presence of Pilate, when he had decided to release him.  (14)  But you denied the Holy and Righteous One, and asked for a murderer to be granted to you,  (15)  and you killed the Author of life, whom God raised from the dead. To this we are witnesses.  (16)  And his name—by faith in his name—has made this man strong whom you see and know, and the faith that is through Jesus has given the man this perfect health in the presence of you all.  (17)  “And now, brothers, I know that you acted in ignorance, as did also your rulers.  (18)  But what God foretold by the mouth of all the prophets, that his Christ would suffer, he thus fulfilled.  (19)  Repent therefore, and turn back, that your sins may be blotted out,  (20)  that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, and that he may send the Christ appointed for you, Jesus,  (21)  whom heaven must receive until the time for restoring all the things about which God spoke by the mouth of his holy prophets long ago.
