Sunday Prep 11/12

THIS SUNDAY: Matthew 10:16-42

As we get to verse 16, there seems to be a slight shift from the immediate context of sending out the twelve to looking forward to the persecution they will endure after the resurrection and ascension of Christ.

We have titled this chapter, Gospel Ministry Fundamentals. Jesus is teaching the disciples the realities of serving the kingdom and living for his name's sake. Some of the teaching is for the apostles only, as they do gospel ministry, and some will be general truths for disciples throughout church history, including us.

Again, please keep in mind the distinction between prescriptive and descriptive texts. Descriptive communicates information. Prescriptive give instructions or commands.

As you read this section, notice a pattern: caution and assurance. This pattern is all through the remainder of this chapter.


  • What do you notice about the cautions?

  • What do you notice about the assurances?

Other Passages to Read:

  • Micah

  • 1 Peter 3:8-4:19
