Jesus: Messiah and Anointed One | Understanding His Authority and Purpose

Nov 03, 2023

Welcome to Gospel Spice, the podcast that takes you on a flavorful journey through the text of Scripture. Stephanie invites you to dive into the Gospel of Matthew to uncover the hidden spices of the life of Jesus. We'll be exploring the cultural nuances and unspoken clues that Jesus' original audience would have easily picked up on, but that may have been lost in translation over time. As we follow Matthew, the most Jewish of the gospel authors, we'll also be connecting the dots between the Old and New Testaments, discovering how the entire Old Testament points to Jesus. Jesus is referenced, prophesied, and predicted throughout the ancient Scriptures. Join us as we discover the Christo-centricity of the Old Testament: it really is all centered around Jesus!

Stephanie takes us on a journey to understand who Jesus claims to be, not through our own opinions, but through the lens of the cultural clues and perspectives of his original audience. As the most Jewish of the gospel authors, Matthew provides us with a rich tapestry of hidden spiritual spices that reveal the true essence of Jesus. Our focus is on establishing who Jesus is and what his opinion of himself is. We'll be exploring the divine authority of Jesus as the Messiah, the anointed one sent by God to save us from sin and redeem our lives. Join us as we uncover the fascinating messianic miracles and the unique attributes that differentiate them from regular miracles.

The authority of Jesus is a powerful theme. Stephanie delves into an unusual and obscure passage known as a messianic miracle. This episode will challenge our understanding of miracles and how they point to Jesus as the long-awaited Messiah. In subsequent episodes, Stephanie will dive deeper into the book of Matthew and explore the person behind the Gospel. But for now, the focus is on establishing the divine authority of Jesus as the Messiah, the anointed one sent by God to save us from our shortcomings and lead us to a life of sanctification.

So get ready to experience the gospel with new flavors, uncover hidden truths, and discover the authority of Jesus like never before. And please don't forget to subscribe and leave a review, as it helps us reach more listeners who are seeking to deepen their understanding of the gospel.
