When compared to the other three Gospel accounts, the Gospel of Matthew is distinctly Jewish. Matthew wrote from the perspective of Old Testament prophecy to demonstrate New Testament fulfillment in the Person of Jesus Christ.
Matthew's Gospel is well-known for its distinctive features like the Jesus' birth story, the Beatitudes in the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus' confrontations with the Pharisees and His in-depth explanations of end times events.
As we present this important book, we'll give careful attention to the details without losing sight of Matthew's major ideas and themes. Together with our previous studies in Luke and John, we're rounding out the full story of Jesus' arrival and work on earth. Every Christian can profit from such a grounding.
This study began January 25, 2018, as part of Verse By Verse Fellowship's weekly worship service, and new lessons will be posted weekly. To attend the teaching in person, please visit our Gospel of Matthew Events page.
