Matthew: Week 22

Mar 4, 2012    Lee Hudson    Matthew 11:1-19

1. In Matthew 11 John the Baptist sent to find out if Jesus was really the Messiah everyone had been waiting for. How does Jesus validate his identity for John and why would he do so in that way?

2. Read Matthew 11:7-15. Summarize what Jesus said about John in your own words. How do you think you would feel if someone you respected described your character this way?

3. What is the common characteristic between Jesus and John the Baptist in this passage? Do you share that characteristic and if not, why not? What can you do to make sure your life is "less show and more go?"
