Join us for "Awaken." We are going to be looking at the final phase of Matthew's gospel over the next few weeks. Here in these final chapters of Matthew’s gospel is the last week of Jesus' life--the passion, the crucifixion, the resurrection. The events in chapter 26 all take place on Saturday through Thursday. Chapter 27 takes place on the day we call Good Friday. Chapter 28 begins on Sunday, Easter Sunday, the day of the resurrection.
In these chapters, we see--perhaps more than any other throughout the gospel--the deity, the majesty, and the royalty of Jesus. We see that he is more than a man, more than merely a good teacher, that he is able to conquer death, and that he is truly the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. May we be awakened to the majesty and glory of Jesus as we approach Easter.
