We will begin the final section of Matthew’s gospel, which describes Jesus’ passion leading to the cross and resurrection. In this text, Jesus announces God’s purpose for his passion. Then, we see three different assessments of Christ and his value, and we are called to see the glory and value of Christ our King. The text is Matthew 26:1-13.
We will see these three points:
1. God’s sovereign plan and purpose for Christ.
2. Three human assessments of Christ.
3. The assessment of faith.
