After His resurrection, Jesus meets His disciples in Galilee as He had told them prior to His death. Jesus has already revealed Himself a multitude of times prior to this moment; yet "some are still doubtful." The disciples are so much like we are. We see the working of God and yet quickly begin doubting again. What does the resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Messiah, mean to us as individuals? On the basis of the authority...

In our study of Matthew's account of the earthly life of the Messiah, we have come to the EXCLAMATION POINT!!!! Last week we considered the Apex of the Victory over Sin ... today, we see that Victory given the seal, or stamp, of approval! The victory is not only the ultimate Atonement (covering) for our Sin … but it is the destruction of the "final enemy" - death itself! O Death, where is your sting? O Grave, where is y...

In our study of Matthew's account of the earthly life of the Messiah, we have come to what would have appeared to be the end of the earthly ministry of Jesus - His Death by Crucifixion. Fortunately, for us, we are looking backwards and we know that this is NOT a sorrowful ending but rather a crucial step in the Ultimate Victory! As Jesus has continually reminded the disciples - and the leaders of the people - what was happening...

Numerous weeks ago, we began to consider the final week of Jesus' earthly ministry; commonly referred to as the Passion Week. As we enter into this final phase of the book of Matthew - considering the sacrifice of the Messiah and His commission - we must remember that this is all happening very quickly for the disciples. There is the Triumphal Entry, the Altercations with the Pharisees, Sadducees, and Scribes ... and then His s...

Jesus has been sharing 'Kingdom thinking' with His disciples and the multitude that surrounded Him. In the previous message, we saw Jesus share the need for simple trust (faith) in order to enter the Kingdom of God. Today's passage is actually a continuation of Jesus' discourse with the 'young rich man.' At the end of that discourse, Peter had asked a question regarding rewards, to which Jesus gave a summary...
