05 Unexpected sermon series

Jesus and his teaching often defies expectations, both during his earthly life and still in our lives today. In his Gospel account, Matthew often presents Jesus as someone who is surprising, counter-cultural and radical: someone who continues to go beyond our expectations. And we’re in good company since the disciples seem the most perplexed of all at times!
In this series, we’ll address questions such as:

  • Would the Messiah’s genealogy really look like that?  
  • Would Jesus really feel tempted like we are?
  • Do we really expect to find God in these kinds of places? 

As we examine the theme of the ‘unexpected’ in Matthew’s gospel, perhaps we too will consider how God wants to be present in our lives today in unexpected ways.
