In Matthew 11 some followers of John the Baptist come to Jesus to find out if He is “the one”.  Jesus tells them to go back to John and tell him what they have seen.  The blind receive their sight and the lame walk, lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have good news preached to them (11:5).  Jesus uses the term “good news” to describe His message.  The term was used in describing the proclamation of a king’s victory in battle.  “Look what your king has done for you!  Look what he has given to you!”  This is how Jesus describes the news about Himself.  The Gospel of Jesus Christ is far better than we realize.  The purpose of this series is to proclaim, Look what your king has done for you!  This is God’s Good News!”
