Matthew 7:1-14

Matthew 7:1-14, January 5, 2020 Judging, Condemning, Deciding Review – 6:25-34 Look at where these verses are placed – right after the danger of possessions!

Matthew 5:27-48, December 15, 2019 Adultery/Divorce, Oaths, Eye for Eye, Love Your Enemies Review – SALT You are indicates only the genuinely born-again person is salt. For a Christian, the salt of the earth, to lose his or her saltiness, the Gospel would have to be diluted in his or her life. How?

Matthew 2:1-23

Review – Chapter 1 Why is Matthew the First Gospel in the New Testament.
