Talk 1: Severed Head and Hungry Crowd

WELCOME BACK to our deep dive in Matthew’s Gospel.

For Talk 1, today, we enter a new section we’ll call “The Clash” because it’s about the aggravating events that led to the crucifixion. And which is why the Talk today is called Prophet vs. Provocateur. Because Jesus provoked. A lot.

Why not do it gently? Because God didn’t want to repair— He wanted to restart.

Friend, are you frustrated because you’ve been trying to fix this thing and that thing in your life?

Good news: The key message of Talk 1 is God doesn’t just want to repair, He wants to restart your life.  He wants to give you a total replacement. A total overhaul. A brand new you.

And that is what God is offering to those who are humble enough to run to Him.

Talk 3: Greed vs. Generosity

We continue our Feast series titled The Clash. The word is familiar with the millennials who followed the hit television series, Clash of the Titans. Our talk is about clashes–the aggravating events that led to the crucifixion. And this is why the Talk today is titled Greed vs. Generosity. About the clash between the greed of the Pharisees and Sadducees and the generosity of Jesus.

We tend to be greedy because we think and act like we own our Life.

Talk 3’s key message is: You belong to God.

Talk 4: Invited vs Chosen

We continue our Feast series titled The Clash. The word is familiar with the millennials who followed the hit television series, Clash of the Titans. Our talk is about clashes– the aggravating events that led to the crucifixion.

Talk 4, titled Invited vs. Chosen, is about the clash—the difference being invited and being chosen by the Lord to be with Him and receive His abundant blessings. Talk 4 is based on the parable of The Wedding Feast (John 3:16 NKJV) where guests ignore the invitation of the Groom to be guests in the wedding banquet.

The Groom symbolizes Jesus, while The Feast symbolizes His Church. The key message: Come to The Feast!
