Wednesday 23rd April – Matthew 28:5-10

Read: Matthew 28:5-10 and Isaiah 9:1-7

In chapter 4, just before beginning his section on the preaching and identity of Jesus, Matthew quotes Isaiah 9. In Matthew 26:32, Jesus tells the disciples that after he has been raised up he will go ahead of them to Galilee. Unique to Matthew’s account, we’re reminded of that twice here. 

Why do you think Matthew draws our attention to Galilee in relation to Jesus?

Why is the resurrection crucial for Isaiah 9 to be fulfilled?

Now, in chapter 28, Jesus has been raised from the dead and his plan is to be carried out.

Pray: Thank God that his kingdom is established and that he is true to his promises. Pray for those you know amongst the nations who are proclaiming Jesus as the light of salvation. Pray that they will be encouraged and keep trusting in their faithful God.
