Bible Study: The Gospel of Matthew (Chapters 1-10)

Matthew’s Gospel was written to a Jewish audience with the purpose of presenting Jesus as the Messiah prophesied by the Old Testament. It was likely composed sometime between 60 and 70 AD, although some date it even earlier, and believe it to be the first gospel written. Although it has similarities to the other gospels, it is a unique portrait of Jesus and his ministry. Matthew is the only gospel to record the  the Sermon on the Mount. The apostle Matthew was identified as the author by early church, and there is little reason to doubt he penned the gospel. Matthew was a tax collector, a profession despised by his contemporaries, not only because of its corruption, but because of its collaboration with the Romans. Matthew, also known as Levi,  answered the call of Jesus to become one of his twelve disciples.  We know little else of him from the scriptures.  Please join us in reading!

  1. That is awesome! My yosgneut is going to be 8 in about 3 weeks. I might look into getting something like that for him to listen to…He likes to listen to the K Love Christian radio station over any of the other regular rock stations, and he’s at that age where he’s really curious about the bible and wants to learn more. This would be a great way to get him (and me) to better understand God’s word. :0)
