About this Series
Matthew 13 is a turning point in the gospel. There is a growing hostility to Jesus and his ministry. Increasingly he will forsake the synagogues and teach people outdoors. Parables both reveal truth but also conceal truth. The section includes the famous feeding miracles, healing and transfiguration. But it also includes the death of John the Baptist and the prediction of Jesus’ own death. Amidst this growing conflict is the disturbing challenge to be a disciple.
