Matthew 12:43 - 12:45

Gospel of Matthew
Gospel of MatthewSteve Gregg

In this discussion, Steve Gregg delves into Matthew 12:43-45 and sheds light on the subject of demons. While acknowledging that the passage may not yield much information about demons, Steve emphasizes that Jesus' main point is not to be missed. The passage uses imagery of a person's body and home to illustrate how demons can inhabit people, causing their lives to be in disarray. Steve concludes by likening the release from demon possession to the removal of blinders and the reception of freedom and light.
