What is the main thing Matthew says about Jesus, from the first verse to the last?
What message was Jesus proclaiming? Why was he doing the things he did?
Is the Sermon on the Mount best understood as a sermon? Remarkably, it said it didn’t sound like a sermon — more like an address from someone in authority.
How do the parables reveal the way Jesus expected the kingdom to come?
Why didn’t he explain who was king? How does he become king when in the capital there are people who believe they represent God’s authority?
Why did he die on the cross? What statement was God making when he raised him from the dead?
These are the questions Matthew addresses in his Gospel account. We follow Matthew’s main message in this 27-minute podcast, recorded at Riverview Joondalup 2022-03-06.
