“Now go in my authority and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. And teach them to faithfully follow all that I have commanded you. And never forget that I am with you every day, even to the completion of this age.”
“Are you weary, carrying a heavy burden? Then come to me. I will refresh your life, for I am your oasis.”
Four hundred years of silence. Where was the promised Messiah?
The Jewish people were waiting for the word of the prophets to come true, for they prophesied that he would come. Then the angel Gabriel announced his birth.
Wise men sought him.
Herod wanted to kill him.
John the Baptist presented him to Israel.
God anointed him.
Satan cruelly tempted him.
Then the King came into the Jewish meeting house and announced:
“I’m here! I’ve come to set you free and to wash away sins, and liberate those who love and follow me.”
It is believed that Matthew was the first apostle to write a gospel, possibly as early as 50 AD. He was a wealthy tax collector who profited greatly from his duty of representing Rome. And then one day, the Man from Galilee stood in front of him and said, “Come follow me.”
