2nd Quarter 2016: The Book of Matthew

2016 Q1 coverIn This Quarter...

And an inspired version of Jesus’ story is given in the Gospel of Matthew, our topic for this quarter. Matthew, a Jewish believer in Jesus and one of the original disciples of Jesus, recounts the story of Jesus from his own Spirit-inspired perspective. Though in common with Mark, Luke, and John, Matthew’s theme is the incarnation, life, death, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus. Matthew focuses strongly on the fact that Jesus is the Promised Messiah. He wanted his readers to know that the redemption of Israel was to be found in Jesus, the One of whom the prophets spoke and to whom all the Old Testament types pointed.

Although his audience was primarily Jewish, his message of hope and Redemption speaks to us as well; a people who, like Rick Hoyt, need Someone to do for us what we never can do for ourselves.

And Matthew tells the story of Him, Jesus, doing just that.
