Matthew 23 – 11/10/17

 Fifth Day – Friday of Seventh Week
 
Matthew 23 – At this point, reflect on our reading so far from Luke and Matthew.  As you have followed, watched, and listened to Jesus, when have you seen him angry?  What kinds of things did he get angry about?  Is there a pattern to Jesus’ “boiling points”?
 
          This entire chapter is given to Jesus’ anger at the most popular religious leaders of his day.  Is the anger expressed here consistent with what we’ve seen in other scenes from Jesus’ ministry? What seems to provoke Jesus’ anger most?  That may be a clue for us about what truly angers God.    
 
Reflection: As you Include Jesus in your life, how would watching him affect what angers you?
