This week we're back in Matthew 13, looking at another well-known parable of Jesus. This one looks simple on the surface, but as with most parables, seems to have a deeper meaning the longer you look at it.

This week's passage comes from Matthew 12:38-50. The Sermon is Titled, "Contrasting Families in the Kingdom." Jesus is clear in Matthew that there are only two families: Satan's Family & God's Family. Often we only think of our blood relatives as family, but the Lord reminds us in this passage that those who do His will are His family and those who do their own will ar...
