Hey, you're halfway through the New Testament! 

Now it’s time for another look at Jesus. The Gospel of Matthew presents Jesus as the culmination of the ancient Jewish story. Watch this overview to find out more…

Matthew’s gospel wastes no time connecting Jesus to the ancient Jewish story. See if you notice how many of the events in today’s reading parallel events from Israel’s history. 

Today we'll read pages 239-251 from Matthew. 

Quick Tip: If you hit a wall with your reading, don’t get frustrated. Think about how far you’ve come and keep at it. You might want to mix up your routine by changing the time of day you read or swapping your print Bible for the audio version. Whatever you do, keep at it!

Enjoy the journey,

The Make and Deepen Disciples Team

Greeting from Beth Seversen

Dear Covenanters,

Did you know one out of five unchurched people report they would be interested in attending church if a friend invited them? And 40 percent of unchurched young adults say they talk about faith matters with friends and family during a typical week. Where are those conversations taking place? In the context of close relationships!

CBE is a wonderful opportunity to be “mission friends” to our friends outside the church. As you begin to prepare for CBE, I encourage you to pray for an unchurched friend or family member and to invite them to participate with you. Take the next few months to invest in deepening those relationships—hang out and have fun, serve your community together, and swap stories. Make and Deepen Disciples will be joining you in prayer that your friend or family member will say yes to your invitation and take steps toward faith in Christ at CBE.

Making disciples together,

Beth Seversen
Director of Evangelism
