Matthew: The Kingdom Sermon Series

While Jesus was teaching, crowds of people gathered around Him, and He had compassion on them because they were “harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd” (Matthew 9:36). He then called His disciples to preach the good news of the kingdom to the people, beginning with the Jews, “the lost sheep of the house of Israel” (Matthew 10:6). The Messiah, Jesus Christ, had come as King to establish His kingdom that will one day be fully realized when He returns to earth to rule and reign forever.
