Who Is the Disciple Matthew?

Series: Everyday Disciples

Pete Briscoe

Ever feel like you don’t belong? Like you’re not in the “in” group? Jesus’ disciple Matthew certainly did—as a tax collector, he was rejected and hated by his fellow Jews and by those in the “in” group. When Jesus called Matthew to be one of his followers, Matthew left his sinful lifestyle without hesitation—and then called his fellow “outsiders” to do the same! 

In this message, Pete Briscoe gives us the background of Matthew’s story and shows us what this story really teaches us about Jesus himself.

Scripture: Luke 18:8 - 18:14 , Matthew 23 , Matthew 9:9 - 9:13
