Jesus as Center

Pastor Al Stout observed that in Matthew 4:12-17 Jesus does not begin his preaching ministry by going to the center of the Pharisees’ world–Jerusalem–because He himself has become the center of the world. No longer should the nations flock to Jerusalem, but they must now come to Jesus who has become the new Jerusalem.
