The Ambassadors of the Kingdom, Part 2

“If you have your Bibles with you, I invite you to turn with me to Matthew chapter eleven. As we continue our study in Matthew’s gospel, we’ve completed a survey of Matthew chapter ten in which the Lord Jesus commissioned His disciples before they went out on their first missionary journey into towns of Judea. And we might expect Matthew to tell us a little about what happened on that first journey, but He says nothing about it. Luke gives us one verse about it. Mark gives us two verses about it, but Matthew doesn’t tell us about what the disciples did, or the adventures that they had at all. He immediately starts telling us about what the Lord Jesus started doing after He sent His disciples out, because his focus is on the Lord Jesus as Messiah.”
