    Loving Enemies | The Gospel of Matthew: The One You've Been Waiting For

    Loving Enemies | The Gospel of Matthew: The One You've Been Waiting For

    This week we'll be studying Matthew 4:21-24, 38-48 under the theme of "Loving Enemies." Almost every society in history has advocated for demonstrating kindness, love, and generosity toward family and friends. Christianity’s unique teaching, however, encourages us to take a smack in the face from an enemy, while not running, not hitting back, and not enabling the wrongdoer to do it again. The Savior who took hell in our place teaches us that grace neither repays sin, nor permits sin, but pays for sins.

    The Light That Shines in the Darkness | The Gospel of Matthew: The One You've Been Waiting For

    The Light That Shines in the Darkness | The Gospel of Matthew: The One You've Been Waiting For

    Old Testament believers really weren't all that different from believers today. They lived and walked in darkness, they consulted with spiritists and mediums who "peep and mutter," and looked for signs on what to do next in this life. Relating that to today, humans often look to social media, influencers, or the news for advice instead of seeking out what God has already instructed in His Word. Listening to any voice other than God's leaves us distressed in the darkness. However, Jesus appears to us in the darkness and calls for us to "Repent, for the kingdom of Heaven is near." By His death on the cross, we have been released from our darkness and a new Light has dawned.

    Based on Isaiah 8:19-9:4 and Matthew 4:12-23.

    The Escape to Egypt | The Gospel of Matthew: The One You've Been Waiting For

    The Escape to Egypt | The Gospel of Matthew: The One You've Been Waiting For

    This week we'll be studying Matthew 2:13-23, under the theme of "The Escape to Egypt." Last week we saw how Jesus’ ministry got started as he publicly identified with our sins in his Baptism, and immediately moved to the wilderness to succeed where we would inevitably fail. This week, we back up a step and see how this mission was not only prophesied, but imaged in the Old Testament Scriptures. God orchestrated stars, angels, and dreams to carry out his plans. And he governs our lives with equal detail today.

    Baptized for Our Failures | The Gospel of Matthew: The One You've Been Waiting For

    Baptized for Our Failures | The Gospel of Matthew: The One You've Been Waiting For

    This week we'll be studying Matthew 3:13-4:11, under the theme of "Baptized for Our Failures." The question of Jesus' Baptism is a peculiar one when we consider his sinlessness, evidenced by his resistance of testing from Satan. But he is baptized for OUR sins, with the goal of switching places with us. 

    SERIES SUMMARY: Matthew's Gospel  is the first book of the New Testament, and tells how Israel's long-awaited Messiah final has arrived in the person of Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus fulfills all prophecy, but is nonetheless rejected by the hypocritical Jewish religious leaders and nation. Still, because he came graciously, he also dies graciously, forgives our sins, and rises to ensure our salvation.

    Beholding Christmas | Christmas Message

    Beholding Christmas | Christmas Message

    So, what is Christmas really about? It's not about those "warm fuzzy" feelings that the songs, movies, commercials, and stores try to sell us during the Christmas season. Christmas is about fear; specifically the absence of fear that the gift of Christ brings every believer. Whether we experience lowliness, loneliness, losses, or lapses in this mortal life, the Gospel points us to the One who has already conquered all of our greatest fears for us. "Don't be afraid. Behold!" 

    Based on Luke 2:1-20.

    Balaam's Donkey | Infinite Depth: The Book of Numbers

    Balaam's Donkey | Infinite Depth: The Book of Numbers

    This week we close out our Numbers series by studying Numbers 22:21-41, under the theme of "Balaam's Donkey." This week is less a look at Israel, more about how God directs forces outside of people to bless his people. If God must make a donkey talk to bring blessing into your life, that's exactly what he'll do. If God has to take a beating to save your life, he will.

Tremendous! 🙏🙏🙏

First of all, thank you God for working in the hearts of those involved in producing this podcast, not only the pastors, but those who make it possible to hear this content every week. Please continue this ministry! Such a blessing to those without the ability to physically attend St. Marcus, so appreciated. Actively listening for the last 3 years!

Find peace in the object of your faith, through Jesus’ sacrifice as our substitute, we are declared righteous in God’s eyes. What a beautiful Savior!

Fantastic content. Some of the music tracks lately have been drowning out the speaker lately.

Such a blessing!!

I sincerely appreciate all the work that goes into creating, delivering and producing these sermons and bible classes. They are filled with the truth of God’s precious Word delivered in a way that I can understand and I have learned so much from viewing these on You Tube and now listening to them on podcast.
