Matthew 9:35 – 10:23

  1. Some of the instructions given to the twelve here are clearly temporary and would not apply to every situation. But what principles of Christian service can you find, which are always applicable?
  2. Verses 16-23 offer the prospect of both persecution in, and power for, service.
    In this situation, what is to be the attitude of disciples?


  1. 10:23 has probably no reference to the second advent, but rather to Christ’s coming in triumph after the resurrection, or to his coming in judgment in the fall of Jerusalem.
