Good morning, my brothers and sisters in Christ.
Jared led a discussion on comparing the priesthoods of Levi and that of Melchizedek as described in the books of Hebrews and the Gospels of Mark and Matthew. He emphasized the superiority of the priesthood of Melchizedek, the significance of Christ's perfection and holiness, and the difficulty of salvation for those who trust in riches. The discussion concluded with a devotional reading and prayer.
Priesthoods Levi vs Melchizedek (Hebrews 7:1-10), Wealth Comparison and The Kingdom of God (Mark 10:17-21, and Matthew 19:16-26).
Jared discussed the comparison of priesthoods between the Levitical Priesthood and the Priesthood of Melchizedek as described in the books of Hebrews. In the Gospels of Mark and Matthew, Jared discussed the difficulty of a rich man entering the Kingdom of God. They emphasized the superiority of Melchizedek's priesthood over Levi's priesthood, using biblical references to illustrate their points. Jared also touched on the significance of Christ's perfection and holiness as outlined in Hebrews 7. The session concluded with a devotional reading from Mark 10.
Discussion on Rich Young Ruler Biblical Passage - (Mark 10, and Matthew 19, Accounts):
Jared led a discussion on a biblical passage where Jesus interacts with a rich young ruler. They highlighted the young man's sincere desire to obtain eternal life and fulfill the commandments since his youth. However, Jesus challenged him to sell all his possessions and give to the poor to enter heaven's kingdom. This advice saddened the young man, as he had great wealth. Jared emphasized that the passage underscores the difficulty of salvation for those who trust riches and the impossibility of earning heaven (Heaven can't be earned here. Christ was stressing the importance of everyone entering into a relationship with Him. This passage had less to do with riches and more with a person's heart and whether they would choose a relationship with God). They also pointed out differences between the accounts in Matthew and Mark. The discussion concluded with a prayer.
In Christ, love Jared W. Campbell
