- Read Matthew 8-14
Consider these questions as you read:
- Matthew 9.1-17 includes several examples of ‘contemporizing’ the text — using language and examples that might especially connect with mid-20th century Southerners. Do you find any ideas in these verses that put a different spin on the familiar words or that help you see them in a different way?
- Matthew 13 includes a number of parables. Did any of them strike you differently in this version?
- Did anything in particular capture your fancy or cause you to squirm?
