Title: Jesus’ Mission & Message
Speaker: Pastor George Gracie
Scripture: Matthew 5:17-20
His mission: Jesus says that He came to fulfill the Old Testament rather than destroy it. He not only fulfilled the prophecies of the Old Testament, but obeyed it perfectly where we could and can not. His message: entrance into the kingdom of heaven requires a righteousness greater than that of the Pharisees, who were “experts” at keeping the letter of the law. This righteousness can only come through Christ.
