Summary: Matthew was a despised, Jewish tax collector, who became a disciple of Jesus Christ. Because Matthew was a Jew, this book tells of Jesus from a Jewish perspective. Matthew represented Jesus as the long-awaited Messiah—the Savior who would bring peace and deliverance to Jew and Gentile alike. He quoted from Old Testament prophecies over 60 times as he established that Jesus Christ did indeed come “to fulfill what was spoken through the prophets.”
This Gospel ends with the Resurrection of Jesus Christ and His command to go and make disciples of all nations.
About Jesus: Jesus is the promised Messiah who provided a way for sinners to be forgiven and have eternal life.
