Join Melusi Ndhlalambi, Azwihangwisi Mbedzi, and Blessing Machona as they discuss Bible Lesson 7 for Quarter 2, 2016, based on Matthew 15:24, where Jesus explicitly taught that he was “not sent except to the lost sheep of the house of Israel” (NKJV). No question, Christ’s earthly ministry was directed mostly toward the nation of Israel.
But, as the whole Bible shows, Israel wasn’t the only people God cared about. The reason God chose Israel was so that He could bless all people on earth. “Thus saith God the Lord, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein: I the Lord have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles; To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.” (Isaiah 42:5–7).
It was through Israel, or more specifically through the Messiah who would arise from Israel, that God would reach out to the whole world.
This week we’ll see a little more of the Lord’s outreach to all in need of salvation.
