We continue our ‘Reading Matthew in Lent’ series today by reading Chapter 20 of St Matthew’s Gospel.
Jesus tells the parable of the labourers in the vineyard to show that the last shall be first. For the third time he foretells his own death and resurrection. In response to request from the mother of two of the disciples Jesus says that the Son of Man can not to be served but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many.
‘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.
