Revelation 2:10-11

Revelation 2:12-17 The Church in Pergamum Part 1

Today we discussed Jesus' message to the Church in Pergamum; the church that struggled with compromise, groups in the church holding onto false doctrine. (Part 1)

Revelation 2:12-17 The Church in Pergamum Part 2

Who was Balaam? Why is "the doctrine of Balaam" mentioned in connection with the church in Pergamum? What did Balaam do and what was his doctrine? Wasn't he the one who had a talking donkey? (Part 2)

Revelation 2:12-17 The Church in Pergamum Part 3

We finished up talking about Balaam and what Peter said about him in the New Testament. And then we started talking about the "hidden manna" and the "white stone" with a new name written on it. But before we could examine what the "hidden" manna might be, we had to understand what manna was. (Part 3)

Revelation 2:17 The Hidden Manna

We examined what manna was from Exodus 16 and Deuteronomy 8. Then we went to the Gospel of John in chapter 6:1-46. Jesus talks about manna there; calling Himself the bread from heaven. Listen as we discuss what Jesus said, and what He meant.

Revelation 2:17 Jesus and the Hidden Manna

This morning we finished looking at John 6:1-46 where Jesus talked about manna in Exodus 16 and explained how, as the true "bread from heaven" He is the real "manna', and what feeding upon Him can provide for those who believe.

Revelation 2:17 Jesus and the Hidden Manna

Today's discussion focused on John 6:47-59 where Jesus talked about manna in Exodus 16 and explained how, as the true "bread from heaven" He is the real "manna', and what feeding upon Him can provide for those who believe. We also looked at how taking communion comes into play in all of this.

Revelation 2:17 "Hidden" and "White Stone"

This lesson covers the concept in Revelation 2:17 about the "Hidden" nature of the manna. Then we discussed what the "White Stone" is that Jesus gives to those who overcome.

Revelation 2:18-29 The Church in Thyatira

What are the characteristics of the church in Thyatira? What part does the self proclaimed prophetess Jezabel play in the church? What does sexual immorality have to do with this church? How would you feel if Jesus said your church had a reputation for being alive...but He said it was actually dead?
