Gospel of MatthewSteve Gregg

In this discourse, Steve Gregg discusses the parable from Matthew 18:21-35 and its relevance to the central message of the Christian gospel. He emphasizes the idea that Jesus' atoning death secured the ability for humanity to stand before God forgiven of sin. Through this parable, Gregg elucidates the importance of mercy and forgiveness in the Christian faith, and how unforgiveness can lead to ongoing and permanent judgment. He stresses the need for Christians to extend mercy to others as God has extended mercy to us.
