Jesus' coming fulfilled Old Testament prophecy, but did so in a way which shattered expectations. Jesus brought grace in a way that is counterintuitive and contrary to what we would expect. This book examines how Jesus and the gospel of grace are revealed in each of the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. This section focuses on the book of Matthew, showing how Jesus' rebuke is counterintuitive.
