17 Jun Matthew 5:28-29

28 When Jesus had finished these words, the crowds were amazed at His teaching; for He was teaching them as one having authority, and not as their scribes.  

Jesus had the power and the right to teach the people these amazing lessons. We have seen the power of Jesus over sickness, over demons, and even over death! He was unlike any other teacher the people had heard. What made Jesus’ words different? What gave him the authority to teach? Look in Matthew 1:23 for more information about Jesus and His authority to teach.
