Scripture Text: Matthew 9: 9-26 Preacher: Rev. David Sutherland Date: 21 October 2018
We continue our studies in the miracles performed by Jesus which are recorded in Matthew’s Gospel Chapters 8 and 9. Our earlier studies concerned Jesus’ power over illness and over nature. This week we focus on his power over death.
The episode described by Matthew in these verses concerns a man of faith who recognized the true identity of Jesus and his power over death, others who failed to do so and cast ridicule on Jesus, and the raising to life of a girl who had been truly dead.
