Today’s topic? Jesus’ first message.
It was only eight words. Here it is:
Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near. (Matthew 4:17)
Interestingly, Jesus’ cousin John the Baptist started his ministry with those exact same words. (Matthew 3:2)
So, what exactly did Jesus and John mean? Today, we’ll look at the first word. Tomorrow we’ll look at the other seven.
