Discovering Jesus

March 30, 2015

We are concluding a series from Matthew’s gospel. Jesus invites us like the first disciples to follow him. As they followed, his true character and divine qualities were gradually revealed to them.

Marcel has pieced together a group of photo graphs that only give you a piece of the whole picture. Each post this week will include a scripture from Matthew and the picture ‘clue’. They do not have a direct correlation, except that each post will have two clues: 1) a photo clue of the bigger picture and 2) a gospel clue about who Jesus is.

The invitation is to try to guess what the pictures comprise (you are welcome to post your ideas in the comments section) and to think about what each gospel passage reveals to you about Jesus. You are welcome to post about this as well, but more importantly, I hope you will listen for what God wants to teach you as we read these passages. You can find some great insights on Matthew’s gospel if you visit the lectio blog on the Seattle Pacific web site: http://blog.spu.edu/lectio/readings/matthew/

We hope you enjoy the beauty and mystery. The full picture will be revealed in April – think EASTER!

Matthew 4:18-22

As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will make you fishers of men.” At once they left their nets and followed him.

 Going on from there, he saw two other brothers, James son of Zebedee and his brother John. They were in a boat with their father Zebedee, preparing their nets. Jesus called them, and immediately they left the boat and their father and followed him.

What does it mean for Jesus to invite you to follow him today?
