1. Matthew: The King Has Come

    We tend to celebrate the beginning and the end of the Gospel story. Christmas and Easter bookend the accounts of Jesus. This tends to be what we focus on when we think of the Gospel. As N.T. Wright points out in “How God Became King” even the Apostolic Creeds emphasize the beginning and the end of the story and tend to leave out the middle bits. Our new series is about the middle bits of the Gospel accounts. It is an attempt to understand the intention of the Gospel writers in telling the events between the birth and death narratives. While the middle bits do tell us several important things about our faith: how to get to heaven; how to be a good person; how Jesus was perfect; how he was just like us; and how he proved his divinity. I want to focus on the Gospel writers’ perspective that the Gospel is the culmination of the story of Israel. “The Wizard of Oz” is a great story in and of itself, but when you see “Wicked” the prequel, the story takes on new meaning. The history of Israel is the prequel to the Gospels. When we think of the Gospels in light of the story of Israel we discover important truth that the original authors intended us to find. Yet because we don’t come at the Gospels from a Jewish perspective we may have missed them. Matthew doesn’t hesitate to tell his readers what he wants them to discover in his Gospel. This is the story of “Jesus the Messiah, the son of David, the son of Abraham.” His genealogy strongly suggests that even his ancestry proves him to be the anointed one, the true king of Israel. He is the culmination of the Old Testament story. While that story ends, or appears to end, with hopelessness and a sense of unrealized expectations, the Jesus story picks up the thread and competes it. Matthew includes many allusions to the OT in his Gospel. Jesus appears like Moses on Mt Sinai in the Sermon on the Mount. He sounds like David when arguing about the Sabbath. He shadows Jacob when he appoints 12 apostles. His miracles remind us of Elijah and Elisha. He appears with Moses and Elijah at the transfiguration. Jesus as King and Messiah fulfilled long standing OT prophecies regarding the one who was to come to put an end to sin (Dan. 9:24).

        Jesus came as a prophet, he is now the High Priest, after the order of Melchizedek, and he will come again as King of Israel. Maurice challenges the theory that he was all 3 when he came the first time, and that 'servant/king' is a wrong title. See what Maurice has to say about all this in an absorbing and enlightening teaching.
