Matthew – Ministry In Galilee
January 18, 2010
Matthew and the other synoptic gospels emphasize Jesus’ mission in
Galilee, where most of the Gospel was spread. Jesus sought to keep this
ministry moving slowly so that the ministry would not be derailed. In
this part of the ministry, He healed people of physical and spiritual
illnesses and preached a compassionate message to the poor, including
the Beatitudes. This compassion is not simply being nice to each other,
but requires action on our part. We must be pure-minded in seeking out
God, we must forgive people and not hold grudges, and we must not make
a show of our faith.
The closing theme is Gerard Satamian’s Chansons Sans Paroles Op. 2 Pastorale, from the album Dry Fig Trees. www.magnatune.com
