Matthew: The Gospel of the Kingdom of God (2)
In the second part of his Gospel (chapters 17-28) Matthew reveals Jesus as the Messiah who fulfills his mission to destroy the power of the kingdom of darkness. The Messiah has come to rescue his people from all the powers of evil by defeating all that opposes the kingdom of God. The amazing part of that story is the way in which the Messiah accomplishes his mission: it is the way of the cross and the grave. But as the risen Lord he then sends his followers into the whole world with the good news of his victory. Led by Gerrit Koedoot, pastor, FCC member, and retired missionary.
