  • FREE the promised land.

Matthew 16: 21-22 (CEB)

21 From that time Jesus began to show his disciples that he had to go to Jerusalem and suffer many things from the elders, chief priests, and legal experts, and that he had to be killed and raised on the third day. 22 Then Peter took hold of Jesus and, scolding him, began to correct him: “God forbid, Lord! This won’t happen to you.”

Matthew 16: 23 (CEB)

23 But he turned to Peter and said, “Get behind me, Satan. You are a stone that could make me stumble, for you are not thinking God’s thoughts but human thoughts.”

God’s People were Expecting a King to:

  • DEFEAT the enemies of God.
  • RESTORE Israel over the nations. 
  • FREE the promised land. 

New King Jesus:

  • DEFEAT evil.
  • RESTORE God’s good world.
  • FREE all people.

Matthew 16: 24 (CEB)

24 Then Jesus said to his disciples, “All who want to come after me must say no to themselves, take up their cross, and follow me.
