This week on MelVee Sabbath School brings you the Bible discussion from Harare, Zimbabwe. Join Elder Blessing Machona (anchor) and Alfred Nakunyada and Alister Murwira as they discuss how, from the earliest days of His ministry, Jesus didn’t work alone. He chose humans to take part in preaching, teaching, and ministering. And though the four Gospels focus primarily on His life, death, and resurrection, they often do so in the context of His disciples, those closest to Him.
The key message is drawn from Luke 24:32 which says, “And they said to one another, ‘Did not our heart burn within us while He talked with us on the road, and while He opened the Scriptures to us?’ “(NKJV). As the panel discusses, we shall see and learn that as the great controversy raged around Jesus, it also raged around the disciples.
Until the bitter end at the cross, when Jesus cried, “It is finished,” Satan found it impossible to make Jesus stumble and fall. Christ’s followers, however, were much easier prey. Their character flaws gave him inroads into them that were readily exploited. Pride, doubt, stubbornness, self-importance, pettiness—whatever the
flaws, these opened the way for Satan. Half of their problem was that they, having their own views of what they thought would and should happen, didn’t listen to what Jesus said would happen.
They had a lot of hard lessons to learn, just as we also have much to learn in our 21st century dispensation.
