Chapter 25 of Matthew’s Gospel continues the theme of our readiness to accompany the Lord sounded in Chapter 24. And if there is any doubt as to where we find the Lord, the parable that concludes the chapter makes it entirely clear.
The next Chapter begins the account of Jesus Passion, Death, and Resurrection. Before he begins that demonstration of the Lord’s commitment to us, Matthew challenges us regarding our commitment to the Lord.
The next chapter of Matthew’s Gospel will be published on Monday.
One chapter is being posted each weekday during the season of Lent.
