An Update From the Producer

February 11, 2016

At this point you may be wondering just how many commands of Jesus are in the series. In his book, The Commands, author Michael Phillips arranged our Lord’s commands into twelve sets of ten commands each: one hundred and twenty in total. So as you can see we have but a handful of Commands left.

Command #115 - Don’t Look Back On Your Past Life

February 10, 2016

Command #113 - Love Me By Having My Commands and Words and Keeping Them

February 5, 2016

At first glance, this may seem but a restating of the command we considered previous to the last. Are we splitting hairs to differentiate between the two?

Command #112 - Don’t Separate What God Has Joined

February 3, 2016

It will be unpopular, in this time when obedience to the marital commands of Scripture has grown so lax within Christendom, to read this command from the mouth of Jesus as strictly forbidding divorce.

Command # 111 - Abide in Me By Obeying My Commands

February 1, 2016

The profound example of the Apostle John's life is as powerful as the words he recorded of Jesus' farewell conversation and charge to his disciples in the upper room.
