The Bridegroom and the Bride

We continue in the gospel of Matthew to see how Jesus’ ministry brings changes to the piety and life of the church. We need to keep our eyes fixed on him and remember he not only brings in the great blessings of the covenant promises, but he is the blessing of the covenant. In his presence, there is joy and peace. The text is Matthew 9:14-17. The message is entitled “The Bridegroom and the Bride.” We will consider these three points from the text:
1. The distraction of a misguided religious piety.
2. The significance of Jesus as the bridegroom.
3. The implications for the new testament church today.
