We continue our ‘Reading Matthew in Lent‘ series today by reading through Chapter Four of St Matthew’s Gospel.
‘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.
In this chapter, we get to the very heart of the Christian season of Lent. Jesus is led into the wilderness where he is tempted by the devil. He fasts for forty days and forty nights.
Jesus then begins His ministry and calls the first disciples. Finally, we learn that Jesus travels throughout Galilee, teaching in the synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom of heaven.
