Matthew 18:1 - 18:5 (Part 1)

Gospel of Matthew
Gospel of MatthewSteve Gregg

In this discourse, Steve Gregg delves into the first half of Matthew 18:1-5, where Jesus' disciples reveal their pride and self-importance by asking Him to teach them how to pray. Gregg compares this to their eagerness to see Jesus become the king of Israel and how this would entail a hierarchy with some disciples holding higher rank than others. He also notes that the idea of Peter being celibate is not supported by the Bible and that the word "converted" has taken on a different meaning in modern Christian jargon.
