January 28, 2017: Daily Bible Reading Commentary for Matthew 8-10
Click here for the Daily Reading
Commentary: Jesus completes His Sermon on the Mount and begins performing miracles. The power of faith is demonstrated by a Roman centurion and a sick woman. The Pharisees were highly skeptical and did not like Jesus or His methods. Unlike Pharisees, Jesus shows no discrimination between classes or nationality. Jesus prepares and sends His 12 disciples out to minister on their own, giving them specific instructions and warnings, and the power and authority to drive out evil spirits and heal the sick and lame.
Focus Verses: 8:5-9 What character traits does the centurion demonstrate? Do you share any of these traits? Should you?
