Teach Them to Observe

This week Pastor John gave us an overview of Matthew which will lead us into the sermon on the mount. Matthew presents Jesus as the Jewish Messiah who has come to judge, heal and rescue the world,  initiating His kingdom on earth as it is in heaven.  At the end of Matthew, Jesus gives us the Great Commission, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations... teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you..."  (Matthew 28:16-20; Matthew 4:23-25).
