This past Sunday, April 22 at Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Charleston, SC, our senior pastor returned to our Matthew sermon series as we examined Matthew 4:12-22. He challenged us with this question: What makes the life of Jesus beautiful? Matthew so beautifully highlights in his gospel how Jesus fulfills the prophecies of the Old Testament. This passage alone is the fifth fulfillment passage in just four chapters.
Matthew demonstrates the beauty of Jesus by telling his audience four things:
- What Jesus did
- Where Jesus went
- Whom Jesus called
- What they saw
