Fourteenth Sunday of Pentecost
I Will Give You the Keys to the Kingdom
Matthew 16: 19
The Power of the Keys, the ability to forgive and to retain sins, was the the most awesome power that Jesus gave to his disciples.
There were no pianos, organs, or keyboards in Jesus' day.
But Jesus did have a interesting sense of humor, and he did like to make jokes. Would he have liked the idea that musical keys have the power to open our hearts and the way to God?
An older class might want to research the wooden locks and keys used during Jesus' lifetime. Though the principles are the same, the mechanisms are somewhat different.
