Introducing the Strategic Plan

Gathering the Strategic Team. Matthew begins the Matthew 28 climax of his Gospel with Jesus calling His disciples to the mountain for presenting His final countercultural message. Matthew’s first century readers would have understood this meeting and message was the birth of the church, since the readers were already living in the fruit of that meeting. One the essentials of this counter-culture Jesus identified was His family. The obligations within the family included both patron-client relations with Jesus and obligations with brothers and sisters in dyadic contracts.

It is out of this setting Jesus makes His claim for absolute authority.
