In this conversation, Pastors Erik, Cody, and Gavin discuss the Gospel of Matthew, chapters 21 to 28 – from Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem through all the events of his death and resurrection . Read the chapters, listen to the audio of the conversation (a little longer this week, but worth the listen), and chip in on the comments section below with your own thoughts on the Scripture and to these three questions:
- What word, phrase, or story most resonated with you personally as you read this section of Scripture?
- What does this swath of text invite us to as a community of disciples?
- If you’re sitting down to read these chapters, what drink or snack would pair best with the reading?
For next week’s Bible Convo we will be discussing the book of Romans as we begin a new series called “Dear Church…” that looks at each of the New Testament epistles in turn. You’re invited to read that section of text and come up with your own thoughts on the the same three questions we used today.

Hi, Tom and Jen here. We finally found time to listen to this past Wednesday’s Study. Good overview and thoughts, guys! Lots of thought-provoking conversation. Tom said “Huh???” and couldn’t even find anything online about “finna woke”, so Jen had to do the search and discovery. It is a millenial slang and has been used as a running comment on a YouTuber site. “Being aware of the world around you”.(at least the one site I came across), which really does apply to the passages today, because we need to Love the World Around Us, which means we must be aware of it. And, we must be aware and ready for the Return of the King!
“Aware” and “Ready” are for sure words to live by as kingdom people. Thanks Fetch’s.
Thank you gentlemen for another rousing edition. Insightful and good for a few laughs – double whammy!
I read through these chapters from the message. Two phrases that stuck out to me were:
– “embrace this kingdom life”. 21:21
– “There is a part of you that is eager, ready to do anything in God. But there’s another part that’s as lazy as an old dog sleeping by the fire” 26:41
I was reminded that I get to choose who I’m going to be. I want to keep trying to seek “kingdom life” and hopefully more often than not I can be eager instead of a lazy dog…
Great thoughts Riley, thanks for sharing this!
