UPDATE FOR ALL MY PRECIOUS STUDENTS AND THOSE WHO LOVE GOD’S WORD!
We just finished Chapter 4 of Matthew’s Gospel. There we learned more about what the devil was really up to in his temptation of Jesus in the wilderness. We also saw the start of Jesus’ official ministry and those fishermen that He called to follow Him so He could teach them the truth from His Father in heaven. We also saw that from the beginning of our Lord’s ministry, healing of the sick was part of His mission to show that the power of God was not only in heaven, but also on earth.
Now that we’ve read about what was said concerning Jesus of Nazareth, in Chapter 5 we will learn what Jesus had to say. It’s important to not only read what He said, but what He meant when He said it. We will also see how what He said was already part of the teachings among the Jews and why His interpretation of it was so special. His audiences knew what the Rabbis taught concerning the Word of God, but now they were being given the pleasure of hearing from the WORD Himself.
We will start this section on Monday. See you then!
