NT Sunday School Lesson 13 (JF): Matthew 15:21-17:13

There are a number of stories in this reading, and they appear not to be given to us in a haphazard way. There is a natural progression from one to the other:

(1) Jesus heals the Canaanite woman’s daughter (Matthew 15:21-28).

(2) He heals many and multitudes come to him (Matthew 15: 29-31).

(3) He not only heals them, he feeds 4,000 (Matthew 15:32-39).

(4) Having just given a miraculous sign, he warns the Pharisees and Saducees against sign seeking (Matthew 16:1-4);

(5) He tells the disciples to beware the leaven, the teaching of the Pharisees and Sadducees (Matthew 16:5-12).
