    This level of understanding is so critical to the health of the body of Christ. I myself am guilty of taking and teaching the lessons of Matthew 18 too lightly. And, as I’m sure you know, Gospel “lite” does not work. Thank you both for your great instruction in these sessions.

    As a older layman, I have never heard this section of Scripture explained in this manner. What a comfort the results can be to both the sinner and the church if it is handled correctly. It seems the first step is the clincher–understanding the “greatest.” Thanks so much.

    FYI: The titles in your menu for Part 3 & Part 4 are reversed.
    When you click on “How Necessary Is It to Forgive” you get “What kind of Community is Created…” and vice versa.

      Thanks for the heads up! Everything should now be properly labelled and ordered. Sorry for the mix-up.
