Rev. Dr. Jeffrey Gibbs, professor emeritus of exegetical theology at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, and author of the three Concordia Commentary volumes on Matthew, joins Rev. Brady Finnern to introduce the Gospel of Matthew. Find the Commentaries on Matthew at cph.org.
Christ’s Reign has come. Christ’s reign continues. His reign is coming. His mercy is beyond our understanding as we commit sins. Since He is the king, we are not. Since He is strong, I am weak. He is the greatest, therefore we are needy. We begin our study of Matthew seeing how our Lord Jesus’ mercy is beyond our comprehension and we simply receive the grace He gives. “Lord God, give us Your Holy Spirit to read, mark, and inwardly digest the gift of Matthew’s Gospel to grow in Christ and for the comfort of our souls. In Him, Amen”
Thy Strong Word reveals the light of our salvation in Christ through study of God’s Word, breaking our darkness with His redeeming light. Each weekday, two pastors fix our eyes on Jesus by considering Holy Scripture, verse by verse, in order to be strengthened in the Word and be equipped to faithfully serve in our daily vocations.
Thy Strong Word is hosted by Rev. Brady Finnern, pastor of Messiah Lutheran Church in Sartell, MN, and graciously underwritten by the Lutheran Heritage Foundation.
