Episode Info

Episode Info:

In Matthew's account (chapter 9, verses 9-13), Jesus follows his confrontation with the religious leaders over authority to forgive sins and heal physical damage and deformity. While all are energized and watching, Jesus then simply approaches an unassuming traitor to family, friends, and neighbors - a tax collector named Matthew. Shockingly for the onlookers, Jesus invites this "known sinner" to enter a special mentored relationship as a student and close friend of Jesus! Jesus is the model for us as the Church, the "Body of Christ" in our world today. We learn to approach all kinds of persons as Jesus does, with loving acceptance motivated by loving mercy. Then through invitation to deep relationship, we support their desire for better for themselves, inside out. We provide the group setting for transformation into Christ's character as we all make this journey of discovery and service to our community.
