Unstoppable

Joel Kurz

1/22/17

Description:In every generation, questions are posed against Christianity which shake Christians. Every generation fears that they have no answer; yet every generation answers the skeptics with grace. As we near the end of Matthew, we see the religous establisment grasping at straws to trip Jesus up and accuse him of blasphemy. We study the four questions ask by Pharisees to find fault that is not there, and observe the blamlessness of Christ that cannot be marred. He is unstoppable in his decernment, wisdom, wit, and words, and the Pharisees are beaten at their own game, speechless, yet unbelieving. Be encouraged that the body of Christ has answered every question for 2,000 years with grace, and the church of Jesus Christ is unstoppable.
