“Authority" - Matthew 28:16-20 - (June 7, 2020 - Trinity SUNDAY)
On Trinity Sunday the Matthew 18:19 passage in which Jesus sends his disciples into the world to preach and baptize in the name of the father, and the Son and the Holy Spirit (The Trinity). Little attention is given to Jesus' words before His command that say, "All authority in heaven and earth has been given to me." In our society today, with protests, rioting, looting, we have a huge problem with "authority". What is Jesus' authority? How are we to understand that authority in light of the authority that is in the world.
