The Temptation of Jesus Matthew 41-11
The Setting
  • Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the
    wilderness to be tempted by the devil. 2He fasted
    forty days and forty nights, and afterwards he
    was famished.
  • 40 Israel 40 years wandering in the desert

The First Temptation
  • 3The tempter came and said to him, If you are
    the Son of God, command these stones to become
    loaves of bread. 4But he answered, It is
    written, One does not live by bread alone, but
    by every word that comes from the mouth of God.

The First Test Change stones into bread
Response Deuteronomy 83
The Second Temptation
  • 5Then the devil took him to the holy city and
    placed him on the pinnacle of the temple, 6saying
    to him, If you are the Son of God, throw
    yourself down for it is written, He will
    command his angels concerning you, and On their
    hands they will bear you up, so that you will not
    dash your foot against a stone. 7Jesus said to

    your God to the test.
  • The Second Test
  • Throw yourself off the temple

Response Deuteronomy 616

    All these I will give you, if you will fall down
    and worship me. 10Jesus said to him, Away with
    you, Satan! for it is written, Worship the Lord
    your God, and serve only him.

Response Deuteronomy 613
  • All three temptations have to do with power
  • 1st use miraculous power to provide for
    ordinary needs
  • 2nd use miraculous power to produce a sign so
    spectacular that it would compel belief
  • 3rd use political power to accomplish the ends
    of the Messianic mission

  • does not seek to satisfy his own material needs
  • does not make a miraculous display of his
    status and power
  • does not enter into partnership with the
    devil for the sake of political authority
  • He is totally obedient to the will of his
  • Example for Christians today
  • dont pay too much attention to material goods
  • dont seek influence and wealth without regard
    for justice and morality

Discourse OneThe Sermon on the Mount
Matthew 5-7
  • Summarizes new law of Gospel
  • Law of love grace freedom
  • Moses on Sinai
  • Jesus on a mountain
  • Jesus ethical teachings
  • Addressed to xtns
  • Those who have accepted the Gospel
  • Major theme of the sermon
  • Interior conversion.leads to discipleship in


  • Beatitude latin happiness
  • declaration that someone is happy or is in a
    situation that will lead to happiness
  • Righteousness refers to Gods character
  • fairness
  • mercy
  • generosity

  • When Jesus saw the crowds, he went up the
    mountain and after he sat down, his disciples
    came to him. 2Then he began to speak, and taught
    them, saying

Mountain place for revelations of/from God
Blessed are the Poor in Spirit
  • Blessed are the poor in spirit, for the kingdom
    of God is theirs

Blessed are those who Mourn
  • Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be

Blessed are the Meek
  • Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the

Blessed are those who Hunger and Thirst for
  • 6Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for
    righteousness, for they will be filled.

Blessed are the Merciful
  • 7Blessed are the merciful, for they will receive

Let us aid our neighbors as generously as we want
God to aid us (Augustine)
Blessed are the Pure in Heart
  • 8Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will
    see God.

Blessed are the Peacemakers
  • 9Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be
    called children of God.

Blessed are those who are Persecuted
  • 10Blessed are those who are persecuted for
    righteousness sake, for theirs is the kingdom of

11Blessed are you when people revile you and
persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against
you falsely on my account.
  • 12Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great
    in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted
    the prophets who were before you.

You are the Salt of the Earth
  • 13 You are the salt of the earth but if salt
    has lost its taste, how can its saltiness be
    restored? It is no longer good for anything, but
    is thrown out and trampled under foot..
  • What is the most common use of salt?

You are the Light of the World
  • 14You are the light of the world. A city built
    on a hill cannot be hid. 15No one after lighting
    a lamp puts it under the bushel basket, but on
    the lampstand, and it gives light to all in the
    house. 16In the same way, let your light shine
    before others, so that they may see your good
    works and give glory to your Father in heaven

The Law and the Prophets
  • 17 Do not think that I have come to abolish the
    law or the prophets I have come not to abolish
    but to fulfill. 18For truly I tell you, until
    heaven and earth pass away, not one letter, not
    one stroke of a letter, will pass from the law
    until all is accomplished. 19Therefore, whoever
    breaks one of the least of these commandments,
    and teaches others to do the same, will be called
    least in the kingdom of heaven but whoever does
    them and teaches them will be called great in the
    kingdom of heaven. 20For I tell you, unless your
    righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and
    Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of
  • Jesus wants to show us how to carry out Gods
    commands in a way that fulfills their purpose.

The Second Part of the Sermon521-48
  • Contrast Between
  • the scribes ideal of holiness based on literal
    reading of scripture
  • And
  • Jesus more radical and demanding teaching
  • you have heard Old Testament
  • But I say to you Jesus fulfills the law

Concerning Anger
  • 21 You have heard that it was said to those of
    ancient times, You shall not murder and
    whoever murders shall be liable to judgment.
    22But I say to you that if you are angry with a
    brother or sister, you will be liable to
    judgment and if you insult a brother or sister,
    you will be liable to the council and if you
    say, You fool, you will be liable to the hell
    of fire.

Old Law New Law
Anger should be taken as seriously as murder
Concerning Adultery
  • 27 You have heard that it was said, You shall
    not commit adultery. 28But I say to you that
    everyone who looks at a woman with lust has
    already committed adultery with her in his heart.
  • 29If your right eye causes you to sin, tear it
    out and throw it away it is better for you to
    lose one of your members than for your whole body
    to be thrown into hell. 30And if your right hand
    causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away
    it is better for you to lose one of your members
    than for your whole body to go into hell.
  • The salvation of the whole person is of more
    value than the preservation of any one part that
    may lead to sin

Concerning Retaliation
  • 38 You have heard that it was said, An eye for
    an eye and a tooth for a tooth. 39But I say to
    you, Do not resist an evildoer. But if anyone
    strikes you on the right cheek, turn the other
    also 40and if anyone wants to sue you and take
    your coat, give your cloak as well 41and if
    anyone forces you to go one mile, go also the
    second mile. 42Give to everyone who begs from
    you, and do not refuse anyone who wants to borrow
    from you.
  • Eye for an eye The law of retaliation (OT)
  • Jesus asks his disciples to forgo retaliation

Love for Enemies
  • 43 You have heard that it was said, You shall
    love your neighbor and hate your enemy. 44But I
    say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those
    who persecute you, 45so that you may be children
    of your Father in heaven for he makes his sun
    rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain
    on the righteous and on the unrighteous. 46For if
    you love those who love you, what reward do you
    have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same?
    47And if you greet only your brothers and
    sisters, what more are you doing than others? Do
    not even the Gentiles do the same? 48Be perfect,
    therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
  • Christs disciples are to love as God loves
  • C.S. Lewis The Four Loves

Almsgiving, Prayer, Fasting
  • Almsgiving
  • Any material favor done to assist the needy, and
    prompted by charity, is almsgiving. (Catholic
  • Prayer
  • The raising of ones mind and heart to God or
    the requesting of good things from God. (St.
    John Damascene)
  • (Catechism, 2559)
  • Fasting
  • As penance
  • As preparation for Gods arrival
  • Emptying of Self
  • Pattern
  • Description of behavior to be avoided
  • Instruction on the proper attitude
  • Promise of a reward from God
  • Religious acts should be done to honor God

  • 1Beware of practicing your piety before others in
    order to be seen by them for then you have no
    reward from your Father in heaven. 2So whenever
    you give alms, do not sound a trumpet before you,
    as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the
    streets, so that they may be praised by others.
    Truly I tell you, they have received their
    reward. 3But when you give alms, do not let your
    left hand know what your right hand is doing, 4so
    that your alms may be done in secret and your
    Father who sees in secret will reward you.
  • What does this mean?
  • God will reward acts of charity done without

  • 5 And whenever you pray, do not be like the
    hypocrites for they love to stand and pray in
    the synagogues and at the street corners, so that
    they may be seen by others. Truly I tell you,
    they have received their reward. 6But whenever
    you pray, go into your room and shut the door and
    pray to your Father who is in secret and your
    Father who sees in secret will reward you. 7When
    you are praying, do not heap up empty phrases as
    the Gentiles do for they think that they will be
    heard because of their many words. 8Do not be
    like them, for your Father knows what you need
    before you ask him.
  • What does it mean?
  • Dont make a public spectacle of yourself while
    praying (Dont show off)
  • God will reward genuine prayer offered in
    sincerity to Him

For ExampleThe Lords Prayer
  • Pray then in this way Our Father in heaven,
    hallowed be your name. 10Your kingdom come. Your
    will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. 11Give
    us this day our daily bread. 12And forgive us our
    debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.
    13And do not bring us to the time of trial, but
    rescue us from the evil one. 14For if you forgive
    others their trespasses, your heavenly Father
    will also forgive you 15but if you do not
    forgive others, neither will your Father forgive
    your trespasses.
  • Three YOU petitions
  • 1. Addressed directly to God
  • Our Father
  • Hallowed by thy name
  • 2. Pray for the coming of Gods kingdom
  • 3. Ask for Gods will to be done
  • Three WE petitions
  • Ask for physical and spiritual well-being in
    difficult period before the fullness of Gods
  • 1. Ask God provide bread needed today
  • 2. Ask that forgiveness received from God leads
    to forgiveness of others
  • 3. In the time of testing that will accompany
    the coming of Gods kingdom, we may not fall prey
    to the Evil One

Ones willingness to forgive others is a
necessary condition for Gods willingness to
  • 16 And whenever you fast, do not look dismal,
    like the hypocrites, for they disfigure their
    faces so as to show others that they are fasting.
    Truly I tell you, they have received their
    reward. 17But when you fast, put oil on your head
    and wash your face, 18so that your fasting may be
    seen not by others but by your Father who is in
    secret and your Father who sees in secret will
    reward you.
  • What does it mean?
  • Do not make a public display of your fasting

Sermon on the MountPart 3619-729
  • Gives advice Christian pursuit of holiness
  • Theme is decision for or against God

Concerning Treasures619-21
  • 19 Do not store up for yourselves treasures on
    earth, where moth and rust consume and where
    thieves break in and steal 20but store up for
    yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither
    moth nor rust consumes and where thieves do not
    break in and steal. 21For where your treasure is,
    there your heart will be also.

Serving Two Masters624
  • 24No one can serve two masters for a slave will
    either hate the one and love the other, or be
    devoted to the one and despise the other. You
    cannot serve God and wealth.

Discourse ThreeParables About the Kingdom
Matthew 13
  • 7 parables reveal nature of Kingdom of God
  • Parable short story drawn from ordinary life
    that makes a comparison with a religious message

Parable of the Weeds Among the Wheat1324-30
  • What does it mean?
  • This is an eschatalogical parable
  • Someone (sower)
  • Seed
  • Enemy
  • Weeds
  • Darnel a weed that has a resemblance to wheat
  • Harvest
  • Reapers
  • Church recognizes it has unfaithful in it and God
    will tolerate that just as he does in the world
  • 24 He put before them another parable The
    kingdom of heaven may be compared to someone who
    sowed good seed in his field 25but while
    everybody was asleep, an enemy came and sowed
    weeds among the wheat, and then went away. 26So
    when the plants came up and bore grain, then the
    weeds appeared as well. 27And the slaves of the
    householder came and said to him, Master, did
    you not sow good seed in your field? Where, then,
    did these weeds come from? 28He answered, An
    enemy has done this. The slaves said to him,
    Then do you want us to go and gather them?
    29But he replied, No for in gathering the weeds
    you would uproot the wheat along with them. 30Let
    both of them grow together until the harvest and
    at harvest time I will tell the reapers, Collect
    the weeds first and bind them in bundles to be
    burned, but gather the wheat into my barn.

The Parable of the Yeast1333
  • 33He told them another parable The kingdom of
    heaven is like yeast that a woman took and mixed
    in with three measures of flour until all of it
    was leavened.
  • Yeast ?
  • What does it mean?
  • The growth of the reign of God from small

The Kingdom of Heaven is like a Treasure1344
  • 44 The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden
    in a field, which someone found and hid then in
    his joy he goes and sells all that he has and
    buys that field.
  • What does it mean?
  • Shows the value of the Kingdom

The Kingdom of Heaven is like a Merchant in
search of fine Pearls1345-46
  • 45Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a
    merchant in search of fine pearls 46on finding
    one pearl of great value, he went and sold all
    that he had and bought it.
  • What does it mean?
  • Shows the value of the Kingdom

The Kingdom of Heaven is like a Net1347-50
  • 47Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a net
    that was thrown into the sea and caught fish of
    every kind 48when it was full, they drew it
    ashore, sat down, and put the good into baskets
    but threw out the bad. 49So it will be at the end
    of the age. The angels will come out and separate
    the evil from the righteous 50and throw them into
    the furnace of fire, where there will be weeping
    and gnashing of teeth.
  • What does it mean?
  • Every kind
  • Coming of kingdom will include a final judgment
  • Good and bad will be separated, will receive
    fitting reward or punishment

Treasures New and Old1351-53
  • 51Have you understood all this? They answered,
    Yes. 52And he said to them, Therefore every
    scribe who has been trained for the kingdom of
    heaven is like the master of a household who
    brings out of his treasure what is new and what
    is old. 53 When Jesus had finished these
    parables, he left that place.
  • What does it mean?
  • Scribe becomes a..
  • New
  • Old
  • Summary
  • Neither is sufficient without the other
  • The Gospel is the fullness of The Law

Jesus Walks on the Water1422-33
  • 22 Immediately he made the disciples get into the
    boat and go on ahead to the other side, while he
    dismissed the crowds. 23And after he had
    dismissed the crowds, he went up the mountain by
    himself to pray. When evening came, he was there
    alone, 24but by this time the boat, battered by
    the waves, was far from the land, for the wind
    was against them. 25And early in the morning he
    came walking towards them on the lake. 26But when
    the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they
    were terrified, saying, It is a ghost! And they
    cried out in fear. 27But immediately Jesus spoke
    to them and said, Take heart, it is I do not be
  • 28 Peter answered him, Lord, if it is you,
    command me to come to you on the water. 29He
    said, Come. So Peter got out of the boat,
    started walking on the water, and came towards
    Jesus. 30But when he noticed the strong wind, he
    became frightened, and beginning to sink, he
    cried out, Lord, save me! 31Jesus immediately
    reached out his hand and caught him, saying to
    him, You of little faith, why did you doubt?
    32When they got into the boat, the wind ceased.
    33And those in the boat worshipped him, saying,
    Truly you are the Son of God.
  • 34 When they had crossed over, they came to land
    at Gennesaret. 35After the people of that place
    recognized him, they sent word throughout the
    region and brought all who were sick to him,
    36and begged him that they might touch even the
    fringe of his cloak and all who touched it were
  • Wind hostile forces of world
  • Peter represents all Christians in his
    enthusiastic love but insufficient faith

Peters Declaration About Jesus1613-20
  • 13 Now when Jesus came into the district of
    Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, Who
    do people say that the Son of Man is? 14And they
    said, Some say John the Baptist, but others
    Elijah, and still others Jeremiah or one of the
    prophets. 15He said to them, But who do you say
    that I am? 16Simon Peter answered, You are the
    Messiah, the Son of the living God. 17And Jesus
    answered him, Blessed are you, Simon son of
    Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this
    to you, but my Father in heaven. 18And I tell
    you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will
    build my church, and the gates of Hades will not
    prevail against it. 19I will give you the keys of
    the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on
    earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you
    loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. 20Then
    he sternly ordered the disciples not to tell
    anyone that he was the Messiah.

Discourse FourJesus Founds and Instructs the
Matthew 18
  • Jesus is head, guide model of Church
  • Continues to guide through leaders
  • Establishment of the Church
  • Mt. 1618-19
  • 18 And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this
    rock I will build my church, and the gates of
    Hades will not prevail against it. 19 I will give
    you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and
    whatever you bind on earth will be bound in
    heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be
    loosed in heaven.

Reproving Another Who Sins1815-20
  • 15 If another member of the church sins against
    you, go and point out the fault when the two of
    you are alone. If the member listens to you, you
    have regained that one. 16But if you are not
    listened to, take one or two others along with
    you, so that every word may be confirmed by the
    evidence of two or three witnesses. 17If the
    member refuses to listen to them, tell it to the
    church and if the offender refuses to listen
    even to the church, let such a one be to you as a
    Gentile and a tax collector. 18Truly I tell you,
    whatever you bind on earth will be bound in
    heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be
    loosed in heaven. 19Again, truly I tell you, if
    two of you agree on earth about anything you ask,
    it will be done for you by my Father in heaven.
    20For where two or three are gathered in my name,
    I am there among them.

  • 21 Then Peter came and said to him, Lord, if
    another member of the church sins against me, how
    often should I forgive? As many as seven times?
    22Jesus said to him, Not seven times, but, I
    tell you, seventy-seven times.
  • What does it mean?
  • Christians have no right to place a limit on

The Unforgiving Servant1823-35
  • 23For this reason the kingdom of heaven may be
    compared to a king who wished to settle accounts
    with his slaves. 24When he began the reckoning,
    one who owed him ten thousand talents was brought
    to him 25and, as he could not pay, his lord
    ordered him to be sold, together with his wife
    and children and all his possessions, and payment
    to be made. 26So the slave fell on his knees
    before him, saying, Have patience with me, and I
    will pay you everything. 27And out of pity for
    him, the lord of that slave released him and
    forgave him the debt.

The Unforgiving Servant continued
  • 34And in anger his lord handed him over to be
    tortured until he would pay his entire debt. 35So
    my heavenly Father will also do to every one of
    you, if you do not forgive your brother or sister
    from your heart.
  • 28But that same slave, as he went out, came upon
    one of his fellow slaves who owed him a hundred
    denarii and seizing him by the throat, he said,
    Pay what you owe. 29Then his fellow slave fell
    down and pleaded with him, Have patience with
    me, and I will pay you. 30But he refused then
    he went and threw him into prison until he would
    pay the debt. 31When his fellow slaves saw what
    had happened, they were greatly distressed, and
    they went and reported to their lord all that had
    taken place. 32Then his lord summoned him and
    said to him, You wicked slave! I forgave you all
    that debt because you pleaded with me. 33Should
    you not have had mercy on your fellow slave, as I
    had mercy on you?

Laborers in the Vineyard201-16
  • For the kingdom of heaven is like a landowner who
    went out early in the morning to hire laborers
    for his vineyard. 2After agreeing with the
    laborers for the usual daily wage, he sent them
    into his vineyard. 3When he went out about nine
    oclock, he saw others standing idle in the
    marketplace 4and he said to them, You also go
    into the vineyard, and I will pay you whatever is
    right. So they went. 5When he went out again
    about noon and about three oclock, he did the
    same. 6And about five oclock he went out and
    found others standing around and he said to
    them, Why are you standing here idle all day?
    7They said to him, Because no one has hired us.
    He said to them, You also go into the vineyard.

Laborers in Vineyard continued
  • 8When evening came, the owner of the vineyard
    said to his manager, Call the laborers and give
    them their pay, beginning with the last and then
    going to the first. 9When those hired about five
    oclock came, each of them received the usual
    daily wage. 10Now when the first came, they
    thought they would receive more but each of them
    also received the usual daily wage. 11And when
    they received it, they grumbled against the
    landowner, 12saying, These last worked only one
    hour, and you have made them equal to us who have
    borne the burden of the day and the scorching
    heat. 13But he replied to one of them, Friend,
    I am doing you no wrong did you not agree with
    me for the usual daily wage? 14Take what belongs
    to you and go I choose to give to this last the
    same as I give to you.
  • 15Am I not allowed to do what I choose with what
    belongs to me? Or are you envious because I am
    generous? 16So the last will be first, and the
    first will be last.
  • What does it mean?
  • Jesus preached to pious and lost sheep
  • If God is just
  • they accept Jesus message, they will both share
    in Gods kingdom

  • End of the world
  • Divine judgment on Last Day
  • Apocalyptic

The Necessity for Watchfulness2436-44
  • But about that day and hour no one knows, neither
    the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but only the
    Father. 37For as the days of Noah were, so will
    be the coming of the Son of Man. 38For as in
    those days before the flood they were eating and
    drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until
    the day Noah entered the ark, 39and they knew
    nothing until the flood came and swept them all
    away, so too will be the coming of the Son of
    Man. 40Then two will be in the field one will be
    taken and one will be left. 41Two women will be
    grinding meal together one will be taken and one
    will be left. 42Keep awake therefore, for you do
    not know on what day your Lord is coming. 43But
    understand this if the owner of the house had
    known in what part of the night the thief was
    coming, he would have stayed awake and would not
    have let his house be broken into. 44Therefore
    you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is
    coming at an unexpected hour.
  • Time of Jesus return is always be
  • We should not be caught unaware like Noahs

The Faithful or the Unfaithful Slave2445-51
  • 45Who then is the faithful and wise slave, whom
    his master has put in charge of his household, to
    give the other slaves their allowance of food at
    the proper time? 46Blessed is that slave whom his
    master will find at work when he arrives. 47Truly
    I tell you, he will put that one in charge of all
    his possessions. 48But if that wicked slave says
    to himself, My master is delayed, 49and he
    begins to beat his fellow slaves, and eats and
    drinks with drunkards, 50the master of that slave
    will come on a day when he does not expect him
    and at an hour that he does not know. 51He will
    cut him in pieces and put him with the
    hypocrites, where there will be weeping and
    gnashing of teeth.
