Matthew 19 – It’s Not About Divorce

Here is my sermon from August 30th, 2020.

In a lot of Bibles, you’ll have a subheading that says something like “Jesus teaches on divorce.”

While those headings might help you skim through and find what you’re looking for, they can also be misleading. In my sermon, I talk about the things that Jesus is teaching in the context of divorce.

The Pharisees were trying to figure out which team Jesus was on, or what sort of denomination. There were some Rabbis that taught this about divorce, and others taught that. If they could figure out which side Jesus was on, they could pick sides easier.

THAT is as much this is about divorce. Reitz and Mater Dei are the two big Westside High Schools in Evansville. One is the public school (Reitz) and the other is the Catholic school (Mater Dei – duh.)

I hope you find this encouraging, especially if you are divorced!
