At the beginning of Matthew’s gospel Jesus is described as “the son of David, the son of Abraham”. So how do we get from a Jewish Messiah, to a worldwide religion? Chapters 14, 15 and 16 of Matthew’s gospel form the transition from Jew to Gentile. What does it mean for us?

Listen to the sermon preached by Revd Bryce Amner on Sunday 20 August 2017.

The scripture readings are Matthew 14:13-21 (Feeding of the 5000), Matthew 15:1-28 (Tradition of the Elders, Syro-Phoenician woman), Matthew 15:32-39 (Feeding of the 4000) and Matthew 16:5-12 (Jesus warns about yeast).
