001: Matthew Series (Matt 1 to 2) – Introduction

Passage: Matthew 3:1-2; 4:17
Service Type:

The Gospel According to Matthew (Greek: κατὰ Ματθαῖον εὐαγγέλιον, kata Matthaion euangelion, τὸ εὐαγγέλιον κατὰ Ματθαῖον, to euangelion kata Matthaion) (Gospel of Matthew or simply Matthew) is one of the four canonical gospels, one of the three synoptic gospels, and the first book of the New Testament. It tells of the life, ministry, death, and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth (Wikipedia).

Matthew (also Levi) the tax-collector and disciple of Jesus (see Matt 9:9-13) wrote his ‘gospel’ of Jesus the Messiah (Greek evangel meaning "the good news of the King"):

  • To teach God’s Word: inspirational and life oriented, not technical study
  • To focus on Christ the King: to know Jesus and His Messianic Kingdom
  • Matthew’s key: ‘Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is near’ (Matt 3:2; 4:17)
