The challenge then and the challenge now Matthew 4
by Peter Hamp-Adams
For some people Christianity resembles some kind of heavenly examination system – make sure you study the syllabus now, do certain things and keep certain rules – and one day you will be rewarded – or not, as the case may be.
What lay at the heart of the exchanges in the final chapters of
Matthew? We must not think of these as some kind of, “who has the
better answers” debate, or Jesus saying something like, “you have got
some things wrong , but let me help you.”
Jesus prepares breakfast for the disciples on the beach and restores Peter in his relationship with Jesus and his commission. Jesus says "Follow me", we explore what that meant for Peter and for us today.
