“So there was great joy in that city.” Acts 8:8
Matt takes us through Matthew 4:23-7:29. Often, we do not readily recognize the Jesus as God’s divine teacher who has authority to define how we are to live. Here we see The Messiah-teacher gives instructions to his kingdom people regarding a life of greater righteousness in the kingdom of heaven.

R.J. Teaches through Exodus 20:1-2. The book of Exodus is about a group of people on a journey towards freedom in God. We consider the three key words in the ninth Commandment: bear, false, and witness as an invitation to imagine how this commandment points to freedom in Jesus Christ, who offers himself to each of us as a true and faithful witness revealing we are so well known and loved by God, we no longer have to feel the need to lie.
