Kingdom33 – The Despised King – Matt2

Pastor Cary Cox, from Matthew 2:13-23.

King Herod’s attempted slaughter of the Messiah Child. God’s powerful and tender protection of his Son. Jesus the Nazarene, despised from childhood. He was despised by men, for us!

Kingdom32 – Worship the Newborn King – Mat2

Pastor Cary Cox, from Matthew 2:1-12.

Matthew is telling us that with Jesus’ coming the kingdom of God has burst into this broken world. The wise men being miraculously led to the Child give us a glimpse of what God is doing: people from every tribe, tongue and nation – Gentiles! – are coming into God’s kingdom through the powerful and sovereign work of God.
