The Authority of Jesus
We live in an age of information and misinformation. It is hard to tell what is true, half-true, or flat-out lies. This Sunday we examined Matthew 8:1-13. This section of St. Matthew's account of the Gospel of Jesus Christ follows the sermon on the mount. Here we see that Jesus' actions align perfectly with his teachings - affirming that he had the authority to teach, calling men and women to repentance and to follow him.
