Some Words for Tuesday: Jesus Christ and the Authority of God (Matthew 8)

When Jesus is approached by a man with leprosy (in Matthew 8), it's tempting to turn the man into a metaphor, and to compare his leprosy with our sin.  However, if we do that, we're in danger of turning a real event into a parable.

Instead we are to consider what this witnessed event teaches us about Jesus, and how we should respond to the one who speaks with the authority of God.
