We continue our ‘Reading Matthew in Lent’ series today by reading the second half of Chapter 10 of St Matthew’s Gospel.
Jesus warns the disciples that they will face persecution for carrying his message of the Kingdom of Heaven. He is sending them out as sheep amongst wolves and that they will be “hated by all” for His name’s sake.
He instructs them not to fear and tells them that those who pick up their cross and follow Him will be rewarded.
‘Reading Matthew in Lent‘ is a series of simple podcasts for the Lenten season offering a daily reading from St Matthew’s Gospel from Ash Wednesday to Easter Monday.
