The Merciful Messiah

The Merciful Messiah

Thank you for joining us for our time of worship. We are glad that you are here, either in person or online. We also want to know how we can be praying for you or ministering to you if there is a need. Please reach out and let us know! Over the last two weeks we have seen Jesus offer rest to those who are burdened and weary. The Pharisees accuse the disciples of breaking the Sabbath law, to which Jesus responds that he is the Lord of the Sabbath. But what is the Lord of the Sabbath like? As we move through Matthew 12, we will see that this messiah is one characterized by mercy. How does mercy interact with the law? How is mercy anticipated in the prophets? And how do these aspects of Jesus’ ministry clarify who he is and what he has come to do?

A bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not quench, until he brings justice to victory; and in his name the Gentiles will hope.

Matthew 12:20-21
