Jesus Money

One of the central purposes of this blog, and in particular this page, is to explore the exciting things Jesus says about money in the New Testament.

Some Bible scholars might rightly say, referring to John 1:1-14, that Jesus inspired through man the entire Bible; both Old and New Testaments, so exploring all Biblical verses relating to money is fine. To that I would agree 100%, however it seems as if much of discussion around money refers to Old Testament verses. That may be in part because there are more verses in the OT. Jesus’ life and teachings exemplified a radical lifestyle.

So what is so radical about Jesus’ teachings and lifestyle? It comprises of not only stewardship, wisdom and obedience, but selflessness, grace, mercy, justice, empowered Holy Spirit living, healing, and Kingdom oriented vision. It is these themes and more that this aspires to explore.

Starting August 6th, 2012, I began a chronological examination of each of the four Gospel’s verses that involves money and stewardship. I’ll try to add to this each week, as part of a weekly financial devotional. Subscribe to my blog, in the left column to receive them emailed as soon as they are posted.
