Dec 16 The Beatitudes / Matthew 5:1-12

Brad Bell

At the time Jesus gave the Sermon on the Mount, there was much discord in Israel, with four primary religious groups that were trying to establish their authority: the Pharisees, the Sadducees, the Essenes and the Zealots. While fully aware of the presence of the crowds surrounding them, it was in… More

Dec 9 The Calling of the Disciples / Matthew 4:12-25

Josh Hawley

After His victorious confrontation with the devil in the Judean wilderness, Jesus heads north to Galilee, setting up His base of operations for ministry in the city of Capernaum. In doing this, Jesus fulfills prophecy and begins to preach His central message: "Repent, for the Kingdom of God is at… More

Dec 2 The Temptation of Jesus / Matthew 4:1-11

Josh Hawley

After His coronation by the Spirit and affirmation from the Father as the coming King, Jesus enters into a time of intense temptation from the devil in the barren Judean wilderness. The battle that follows will reveal that Jesus is truly the Son of God who defeats the tempter. It will also show… More

Nov 25 John the Baptist and Jesus' Baptism / Matthew 3:1-17

Josh Hawley

In Matthew 3, God raises up John the Baptist to prepare the hearts of the people of Israel for the coming of their King and Messiah, Jesus Christ.

Nov 18 Visitors From the East, Escape and Return / Matthew 2:1-23

Brad Bell

As we go through the second chapter in Matthew, we will look at the events of Jesus’ childhood and the world He was born into.

Nov 11 The Virgin Birth / Matthew 1:18-25

Mike Slayden

In the years following the accounts in the book of Acts, early church leaders were intent on keeping the theology of Christ pure and accurate, so much so that they were willing to die for those beliefs. Yet many people today are quick to dismiss parts of Scripture because some passages are strange… More

Nov 4 The Genealogy of Jesus / Matthew 1:1-17

Mike Slayden

As we look at the genealogy of Jesus in the book of Matthew, it shows us more than just a bunch of names. Jesus’ claim that He could be the Messiah is verified as legal because it goes through Abraham and David. It’s scandalous because the lineage is full of sinners with broken and shady pasts. It’s… More

Oct 28 Matthew Overview / Mark 2:14-17 / Matthew 4:23

Brad Bell

As we start our series in the book of Matthew, we’ll look at Matthew’s life and who he was. The calling of Matthew shapes the entire Gospel. As a tax collector, Matthew was shady and self-focused, yet Jesus called him anyway because Jesus didn’t come to save the healthy but the sick. Matthew’s life… More

Oct 14 The Joy of Generosity / Luke 6:38 / Mark 12:41-44

Brad Bell

By His own nature and character, God is generous, and we are His image bearers. Therefore, we are called to reflect His characteristics. Because of the fall, we became selfish, thinking only of taking care of ourselves and our own comfort. But because of the redemption of Christ, the image of God… More
