New Testament study for May 10th

Lesson 17: “What Shall I Do That I May Inherit Eternal Life?”

Mark 10:17–30; 12:41–44 A rich young man asks what he must do to gain eternal life, and Jesus teaches that trusting in riches can keep a person out of the kingdom of God. Jesus praises a poor widow for casting two mites into the treasury.

Luke 12:13–21 Through the parable of the rich fool, Jesus teaches the dangers of covetousness. He exhorts his followers to seek heavenly, rather than earthly, treasures.

Luke 14:15–33 Through the parable of the great supper, Jesus teaches that those who follow him must be willing to forsake all else.

Luke 16:1–12 Through the parable of the unjust steward, Jesus teaches his followers to seek spiritual wealth with the same enthusiasm as those who seek worldly wealth.
