Matthew 4

Week 4: Week 4's study of the Gospel According to Matthew dives into chapter 18. Matthew often presents the teachings of Jesus in discourse form: The Sermon on the Mount (Ch 5-7), the Mission Discourse (Ch 10), and the Parabolic Discourse (Ch 13) are all examples of ways that Matthew groups teachings for a particular purpose. This week's study focuses on the Community Discourse found in Chapter 18, intending to provide the church community with an ethic by which to shape life together. Jesus encourages us to simplify the path for believers and always be willing to forgive.
