Jesus Up Close and Personal #2: “THE MAN WITH THE BURNING EYES” – Matthew 22

Categories: Sermon

Pastor Bill speaks from Matthew 22:15-45 where four different questions are raised. Three are venomous – put to Jesus by His opponents as they attempt to test Him or trip Him up.  Jesus Himself poses the fourth question, getting right down to the heart of matters – His identity and authority.

Jesus’ insights are perfect on all matters; He sees perfectly and knows all things whether it be how to relate to earthly powers, the life to come, the law of God, and most importantly who he is – Son of David, Son of God. 

Jesus He sees through the motives and intentions of those who stand before Him, exposing their falseness.  His understanding, no one can fathom.

Here is a call to yield to His lordship and to seek His face. We must not seek to compartmentalize Jesus – thinking that He can only do certain things well. No – He is authoritative over all and does all things well. Seek Him and find Him. Ask Him for a third way, when no other options are coming to you.

Make time to worship and seek Jesus, who is all-wise and has all authority.
