The next study is Thursday, May 11, at 7:30pm, at M.D. Green’s, 1808 2nd Avenue, in Rock Island’s District. We will look at what God said: “This Is My Son, the Beloved,” and read Matthew 3:13 – 4:11. Before his ministry begins, Jesus’ identity and purpose are affirmed by God – and tested by the devil. Have you ever felt tested by the devil? Have you ever felt affirmed by God? Jesus relied on the words of God. This is helpful to disciples today (us), for enduring trials, too.
