Sunday’s message was the first in the new Ten Miracles of Jesus series. The message was called Power to Make Clean, taken from Matthew 8:1-4. Here is a brief outline of the message:

      – Leviticus 13:45-46; Deuteronomy 24:8
   C. Jesus shows compassion and the ability to heal (3)

II. Jesus honored the law (Matthew 8:4)
   A. Jesus instructs the leper to go to the priest and offer a gift
      – Leviticus 14:1-32
   B. The ceremonial law had not yet been fulfilled (not until the cross)
