14 Days of the Old Testament in the New Testament

MEMORY VERSE
Matthew 15:11
It is not what enters into the mouth that defiles the man, but what proceeds out of the mouth, this defiles the man.

August 14 – Matthew 3:1-6
When Matthew described the preaching of John the Baptist (3:3), he quoted Isaiah 40:3. These words, proclaimed in 750 BC, gave John the authority to deliver God’s Word to the people. We need modern day prophets who remind us we are accountable to God.
