    based on 117 ratings
     | 22,502 views

    This sermon addresses how Jesus ministered to the Canaanite woman when others, including Jesus’ own disciples, would have just brushed her off.

    JESUS AND THE CANAANITE WOMAN Text: Matthew 15:10-28 It seems that Jesus was indifferent toward this Canaanite woman who was in need of His help. Matthew 15:24 could give one that perception on the surface: "I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel" (Matthew 15:24 ...read more

    based on 406 ratings
     | 70,830 views

    What, then, do the parables teach? Church fathers such as Irenaeus and Augustine identified the treasure and the Pearl with Christ. The recent convert to Christianity says exactly the same thing: "I found Christ." Yes, it seems like we did find Christ.

    In his series of seven parables in Chapter 13, Matthew is quite elaborate ....... on the first two, providing an interpretation for each. The other five are shorter and more pointed in content. The parables of the hidden treasure and of the pearl consists of two sentences each. And in ...read more

    Those who appreciate the depth of sin that God has forgiven in them will forgive others as well.

    This morning, we continue our journey through the parables of Christ. Parables, as I’ve noted before, are short and simple. They don’t have complex plots, or dozens of characters, like a Russian novel. You don’t need a Ph.D. in theology or Hebrew literature to understand them. And yet, despite ...read more
