Gospel of Matthew – Lord of the Sabbath and Legalism

***Audio is acceptable, but improves after the first 5 minutes***

Today we will examine how Jesus demonstrates right exegesis that leads to freedom and joy in Christ, as opposed to legalistic interpretation, which is a device of the devil. We will spend our application section identifying legalism. We’ll cover [esvignore]Matthew 12:1-14[/esvignore]. Here is a foretaste:

  1. Sabbath Keeping – Rest or Burden?
  2. Jesus’ Good Exegesis
    1. first example
    2. second example
    3. third example
  3. God’s Approval of Jesus
  4. Legalism and You
    1. Legalism is a burden
    2. Legalism demands more than the Bible demands
    3. Legalism seeks holiness through outward conformity
    4. Legalism tempts us to judge our brothers and sisters
    5. Legalism is projected upon others
    6. Legalism isolates
