Jesus, A Better Elisha (Matthew 14:13-21)

Phill Howell, July 7, 2019
Part of the The Gospel According to Matthew series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

Today's message comes from the next section in Matthew 14 and the story of Jesus feeding the 5000. This familiar story takes on new light when one considers the setting of this miracle. The setting shows that Jesus was around a crowd of 5000 men who were ready to force Jesus to be their military and political leader against the Roman Empire. However, Jesus is a different kind of king and leader with different soldiers for his battles and a very upside down strategy.

Scripture Readings:
1 Corinthians 11:23-32
2 Kings 4:38-44
