In Matthew 8 after Jesus healed many people (8:1-17) He decided to depart and venture over the sea to another place. When He gave orders to depart, two men indicated that they wanted to follow Him. The first, a scribe, desired to go but was told that the Son of Man had nowhere to lay His head. The second, a disciple, said that he first wanted to bury his father. Jesus responded by telling him to leave the dead to bury their own.
Jesus came down after the great Sermon on the Mount, and continued to amaze the crowds as He healed all who came to Him. Healing a leper (and outcast), and the slave of a centurion (a gentile), and Peter's mother-in-law and many others who were brought to Him, we learn more about the theology of His mandate.
Seven hundred years before the coming of Christ, Isaiah foretold: “Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, a virgin will be with child and bear a son, and she will call His name Immanuel” (7:14). What does it mean that God became a man? What does it mean that in the very name Immanuel we have both God and Man in one person, the Lord Jesus Christ?
