“Summer in the Son” was our sermon series in 2020 during the months of June, July and August. We took a deep dive into the first thirteen chapters of the Gospel of Matthew and discussed Jesus’ genealogy, baptism, early ministry and miracles.
We continue our “Summer in the Son” series in 2021 by examining the remaining chapters in the Gospel of Matthew (chapters 15-28). At this point in Jesus’ ministry, he’s presenting some very profound truths and putting forth some challenging ideas (at least from the point-of-view of the legalistic Pharisees & Sadducees). He continues to perform miracles (such as feeding the 4,000 and the transfiguration) and drawing massive crowds to hear him preach. The Pharisees, on the other hand, are increasing the pressure against him and trying to snare him in legal traps meant to discredit him. Jesus is fully aware of what they are trying to do and continues to boldly teach anyone willing to listen — even while those who hate him plot his death.
Over the next three months, we will discuss various important moments in Jesus’ ministry — his teachings, parables and miracles — and learn valuable lessons from each. Even though the Gospel of Matthew was written roughly 1,930 years ago, there is still much we can learn from Jesus’ words and actions, we just have to be willing to listen.
