Dean Elliott teaches from Matthew 13:53-58.  He begins by reflecting on the concept of a sinkhole — sometimes very important things disappear suddenly but it was caused by a very small shift happening over many years.  There are some people and churches who are wanting to move away from the accuracy, inerrancy, and authoritative Scriptures in small ways.  Matthew 13:53-58 begins another group of narratives demonstrating how the kingdom of God is hidden from some and revealed to others.  God’s kingdom is present here now where God’s Word is preached, where believers are present, and power is given through the Holy Spirit.
