Teaching: The Book of Matthew
Grab your notebooks because this message unpacks the entire book of Matthew through three key themes. Matthew demonstrates that Jesus is the fulfillment of the Old Testament, He establishes a new kingdom, and Jesus is more significant than Moses. These ideas were both radical and politically challenging for the time. Jesus came to do all three, but in ways no one expected. Jesus came to conquer death itself- a much bigger evil than kings, empires, and man. Matthew ends his gospel with an invitation to join this “upside down” revolution and enter into the “co-mission” of Jesus called The Great Commission. That invitation is here for all of us today!
The name “Lectio Divina” is Latin for “Divine Reading”. This practice is not just used for studying Scripture; it is used to hear from God. In Lectio Divina, you allow the scripture to study you as you sit with the text in God’s presence. Lectio Divina creates space for God to speak to you about His word.
