Jesus has just stepped down from the mountain (where he gave the Sermon on the Mount), and he shows us what he’s just been teaching about for three chapters: That he has the authority of God himself, over creation, and in his understanding of the Old Testament law. So in story after story, told in quick succession, we will see Jesus reversing people’s expectations of who God seeks out, reversing the curse of sin, and even reversing some of God’s own laws in the Old Testament, to show the new way that he was going to bring in through his kingdom, with the confronting glory of our all-powerful and all-merciful Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
