THE COMING KING
For centuries Christians have spent time between Christmas and Easter delving into the life of Jesus. We will be continuing that tradition by taking a look at the gospel of Matthew. Matthew is writing to a Jewish community, and his primary purpose is to show them that this Jesus is the long-awaited and promised Messiah (anointed King). This Jesus comes not only as King, but calls all of us to be a citizen of his kingdom. A kingdom with counter-cultural values and purposes. Together we will explore what it means to call Jesus King, and what it means to live as a citizen of His kingdom. How do the values of that kingdom affect our work, our homes, our relationships to and within our world?
