Eschatology (24-25) Narrative Section: Passion and Resurrection (26-28) Structure of Matthew’s Gospel Slide 3: The intended audience of Matthew’s gospel is Jewish listeners Kingdom of heaven and kingdom of God mean the same thing Luke 4: 43 But he said, "I must preach the good news of the kingdom of God to the other towns also, because that is why I was sent." Luke 4:20 Looking at his disciples, he said: "Blessed are you who are poor for yours is the kingdom of God. Matt. 4:17 From that time on Jesus began to preach, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near.” Matt. 5:3 “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Slide 4: 21 Then Peter came up and said to him, "Lord, how often will my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? As many as seven times?" 22 Jesus said to him, "I do not say to you seven times, but seventy times seven. Forgiveness must be unlimited! Slide 5: 23 "Therefore the kingdom of heaven [NIV is like …] may be compared to a king who wished to settle accounts with his servants. 24 When he began to settle, one was brought to him who owed him ten thousand talents. 25 And since he could not pay, his master ordered him to be sold, with his wife and children and all that he had, and payment to be made. Talent = 20 years’ wages Slide 6: 26 So the servant fell on his knees, imploring him, 'Have patience with me, and I will pay you everything.' 27 And out of pity for him, the master of that servant released him and forgave him the debt. Why?

Denarii = a day’s wages for a labourer or foot soldier Slide 8: Basanistas = torturers, not merely jailers 31 When his fellow servants saw what had taken place, they were greatly distressed, and they went and reported to their master all that had taken place. 32 Then his master summoned him and said to him, 'You wicked servant! I forgave you all that debt because you pleaded with me. 33 And should not you have had mercy on your fellow servant, as I had mercy on you?' 34 And in anger his master delivered him to the jailers, until he should pay all his debt. Slide 9: 35 So also my heavenly Father will do to every one of you, if you do not forgive your brother from your heart." An echo of the Lord’s prayer: forgive us our sins as we have forgiven.
