Bread for the World
Jesus came as the Jewish messiah to save “the lost sheep of the house of Israel”. All the disciples are Israelites, and He tells them to stay within Israel when preaching His kingdom (Matt. 10:5-6). And yet today the church is filled with Gentiles as more people from every tongue and tribe believe the good news all the time. It’s in this story that we see the beginning of the nations coming to Christ in fulfillment of God’s promise to save the world.
