Announcements – July 21, 2023

This coming Lord’s Day, we will return to our study of the ‘Unusual Questions that Jesus Asked.’  Out text for Sunday will be Matthew 12:1-8.  This passage will be familiar to most of us as it also contains one of the more memorable sayings of Jesus.  In verse 8 He declared, “For, the Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath.”
The question for our consideration this week is one that Jesus aimed directly at the Pharisees:
Have you not read what David did . . .?
At first glance, we may not see how terribly offensive such an inquiry really was. After all, the Pharisees were the Bible experts of the day, which meant that they certainly knew the Old Testament better than other people, and they also knew for sure who David was and what he once had done.  Yet, Jesus raises a question that brings such claims into grave doubt.  The speech and the actions of the Pharisees seemed to indicate that they were, to the contrary, completely ignorant of David, unaware of his story in the Old Testament, and unfamiliar with what he had done and what it meant!
As with all of our Lord’s questions, this one is also designed for us, His disciples.  As we give if our full and prayerful consideration, there will be much to learn, not only about Israel’s great king David, but also about the Greatest King of All!
I love you all and can’t wait to see you on Sunday!
