The training wheels are coming off and the 12 disciples are sent out to preach and to heal.  But they can’t take a staff, a bag, any bread, any money, any extra clothes, or anything.  The results are so dramatic that the king who killed the former leader, wants to meet the present leader.  Feeding 5,000 men with 5 loaves and 2 fish is just an encore.

Levi (also called Matthew) did what he does best.  He threw a party for Jesus.  This party became the springboard for some radical teaching and radical behavior by Jesus.  Why couldn’t he just be a good, Jewish boy and create no problems for no one? (bad grammar intended)

Why do some churches grow and seem blessed while others stagnate and seem cursed?  Who is this Jesus who thrills, angers, and amazes?  The people who are supposed to know him best didn’t know him at all.  But his enemies did know him thoroughly.
