KINGDOM101: Matthew 10

Click on title to go to audio link of KINGDOM101 teaching.

Starting a new section, Henson provides an overview of the five discourses in Matthew, and the KINGDO101 expository journey thus far. What does it mean to be on Team Jesus? Matthew 10:1-6 outlines how disciples are to be aligned with Jesus, that we may be authorised by Jesus as we are appointed by Jesus and assigned for Jesus. In this teaching, Henson challenges believers to go beyond being good church members, to become faithful disciples on kingdom assignment for the king.

Matthew 10:7-15 contains instructions to Team Jesus as they move on their kingdom assignments. The priority is to proclaim the good news of the kingdom. On this note, we have a responsibility to represent Jesus and His kingdom rightly and accurately. Kingdom paradigms of power, grace and provision accompany the proclamation of the kingdom message. At the same time, be prepared for reactions, both positive and negative.

Matthew 10:16-25 addresses an aspect of discipleship that we would rather ignore – persecution. And yet, these are the words of Jesus our King and Master, our Shepherd who prepares His sheep to be sent out amongst wolves! Be aware of the groups of people from which disciples may face possible challenge and persecution. Learn how we are to respond and why this is expected of those who consider themselves followers of Jesus Christ.

After warning the disciples of possible persecution, Jesus tells them not to fear. This teaching of Matthew 10:26-31 explains why there is no need to fear men, or even death. More easily said than done? The key is to have the reverence of the fear of the Lord, and also the assurance of the love of the Father.

Matthew 10:32-39 contains many contrasts. Jesus employs this literary device to its fullest to make a very clear and strong point. In this teaching, Henson uses the seven contrasts to establish that there is no question that Jesus will have the last word. The question is, does He take first place presently? How we represent Jesus before men today will determine how He presents us to the Father finally.

Jesus closes Matthew 10 on a positive note with the promise of rewards. In this teaching, Henson draws on context to explain the significance of prophets, righteous men and the little ones. With the focus on a kingdom community that receives one another in the face of threats and challenges, Henson shares five principles how that can be applied in present times.
