We continue our ‘Reading Matthew in Lent’ series today by reading through Chapter Eight of St Matthew’s Gospel.
Jesus came down from the mountain and cleansed a leper in front of great crowds at the start of Chapter Eight.
We then learn of the faith of the centurion and hear the words we echo to this day: “Lord, I am not worthy to have you come under my roof”.
The chapter continues with accounts of Jesus’s healing and the calming of a storm.
‘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.
