Matthew: God's Promise Fulfilled
How does Jesus fulfill God's promise of a king? Prophesies in the Hebrew Scriptures created expectations for a king who would free the Jewish people from oppressors. When Jesus came on the scene in Israel, his miracles and teaching drew the attention of great crowds, but his actions led to strong opposition from leaders. Matthew, an apostle and primary witness of Jesus' ministry, presents the most comprehensive collection of Jesus' teachings. He also permeates his account with prophesies from the Old Testament. Matthew: God's Promise Fulfilled will help you unpack and apply Jesus' teachings and uncover the evidence that he is the king God promised to send.
