“In no other gospel is the teaching of
Jesus so systematically assembled and gathered together. And it
is pre-eminently the gospel which is concerned to show us Jesus
as the man born to be King.” – William Barclay
Matthew’s Gospel is the story of Jesus of Nazareth, recorded by the apostle Matthew, as a compelling witness that Jesus is the long-anticipated Messiah, who brought the kingdom of God to earth and is the prophesied fulfilment of God’s promise of true peace and deliverance for both Jew and Gentile.
Matthew 8-12 looks at how Jesus’ disciples are to to conduct
themselves on their evangelistic journeys on earth as they are sent out by Him.
