Four centuries of silence. Where was the promised Messiah? The Jewish people were waiting for word of the prophets to come true, for they prophesied that he would come. Then suddenly the angel Gabriel made an appearance to a teenage girl to announce his birth. His name would be Jesus, the Savior of the world! Wise men sought him. Herod wanted to kill him. John the Baptist presented him to Israel. God anointed him. Satan cruelly tempted him. Then the King came into the Jewish meeting house and announced: “I'm here! I've come to set you free and to wash away sins, and liberate those who love and follow me." The gospel of Matthew will bring before your eyes the power and majesty of our Loving King. Encounter the wonder of Jesus as you read this book!
Journey into the fulfillment of the Jewish story by diving deep into Jesus’ story. From the first verse to the last, Matthew establishes Jesus as a direct descendant of King David and portrays him as the new, greater Moses. Unlike any other gospel, Matthew reveals how to live as a citizen of God’s kingdom, with Jesus as our loving King.
We’ve designed this study to help you explore this king and his kingdom through Matthew’s detailed historical biography. Each uniquely-crafted lesson opens with an introduction and key verse to reveal important themes. Four sections guide readers through Matthew in a way that will help you discover, explore, experience, and share the heart of God more deeply.
