Standing on the Promises

Bible Study Lesson

In this lesson we find Jesus and the disciples departing from the Last Supper and making their way to the Garden of Gethsemane. In this lesson we will examine the following events that took place after the Passover meal was finished:

  • Why the scribes and Pharisees felt it was necessary to send a detachment of 200 temple police to arrest one unarmed Jewish carpenter.
  • What motivated Judas to stand with the religious hierarchy rather than being on the same side of the fence as Jesus.
  • The only two places a person can stand in this world and throughout eternity.
  • Why Leonardo da Vinci painted Judas seated alongside Jesus at the Last Supper, while other artists painted Judas seated in the rear of the room. We will also see why he painted an overturned salt dish in front of Judas and with him clutching a money bag.
  • Why Jesus rebuked Peter for cutting off the soldiers ear.
  • How the trial of Christ was not only illegal but rigged.
  • Why the Jewish high priest unknowing referred to Old Testament prophecy when he said it was expedient that Jesus be crucified.
  • Why it was imperative for Jesus to die as a result of a Roman execution, rather than from a Jewish execution.
  • What Jesus meant when He told Pilate that His kingdom was not of this world.
  • What were the three requirements that Jesus had to fulfill in order to become the Savior.
  • How the criminal Barabbas is representative of Christians.

Standing on the promises of Christ my King,
Through eternal ages let His praises ring,
Glory in the highest, I will shout and sing,
Standing on the promises of God.

Standing, standing,
Standing on the promises of God my Savior;
Standing, standing,
I’m standing on the promises of God.

Standing on the promises that cannot fail,
When the howling storms of doubt and fear assail,
By the living Word of God I shall prevail,
Standing on the promises of God.

Standing on the promises I now can see
Perfect, present cleansing in the blood for me;
Standing in the liberty where Christ makes free,
Standing on the promises of God.

Standing on the promises of Christ the Lord,
Bound to Him eternally by love’s strong cord,
Overcoming daily with the Spirit’s sword,
Standing on the promises of God.

Standing on the promises I cannot fall,
List’ning every moment to the Spirit’s call,
Resting in my Savior as my all in all,
Standing on the promises of God.

Russell K. Carter - 1866

Rev. Dr. Dean, Pastor- If you are looking for a man with a fresh perspective to lead your church to another level, consider inviting Jack to come in and lead a series of teaching sessions. Our church thoroughly enjoyed the time. He is competent in handling the scriptures, and has great insight about Biblical truths that are often neglected or simply not taught by design in so many of our churches today. You will not be disappointed if you embark on such a course.

Connie - I can't put the book Under the Cloud down!

David (a Sunday School teacher for Young Marrieds) - It is a great teaching resource that I know is reliable. There are specific topics that I can easily access for use in my class like "The Rock" and I especially liked the section on "Educating the Flesh."

Mary Anne - Under the Cloud is not just another man's opinion, it is all based on Scripture.

Antoinette (who has already purchased over 30 books) - As I give the book to friends and clients, I say to them "put down all the other books you are reading and read this one! I promise you Under the Cloud will change your life."

Julie - I started reading Under the Cloud yesterday and felt enveloped in love, as well as wonderful memories of being taught amazing and powerful truths through two incredible servants of God. Thank You!

Name withheld by us - I will send my husband and son off to the Middle East in Sept. for their second deployment with a copy of your book. (Likely to Afghanistan).

Karen - I am really enjoying your book. It sure is one that I will go back to. I have already marked it up.

John & Jane - We are both enjoying your book so much. Please bring us 10 more signed copies on Thursday.

Rob - My only criticism of the book is that I eventually ran out of pages.

Sally - Your book is fantastic! I just wish I had read it 20 years ago. It would have answered a lot of my questions.

Wayne - I loved the section on "Rigged Fights."
