About the Study:
The Gospel of Matthew is perhaps the most popular of the four Gospels because it is so complete—it offers everything from a birth narrative to the passion, resurrection, and Great Commission, with everything in between. This Gospel even contains the cherished Sermon on the Mount in its most complete form, a block of teaching that hints at the unique identity of Jesus as the Messiah as it alludes to Moses— giving of the Law on Mount Sinai.
In this OneBook Daily-Week study with Dr. Ben Witherington III, we discover Jesus as Matthew presents him—the incarnate wisdom of God that brings the kingdom of heaven to earth. Following the text through the stories, parables, and noting the special miracles, God’s people are presented with the mission and ministry of Jesus the Messiah who fulfills the Jewish Law. At times he raises the standard, other times he authoritatively reinterprets its meaning, and finally, he fulfills its requirements through his life, death, and resurrection. All of this is to widen and deepen the reach of God’s heavenly kingdom, which we discover extends to all people at the end of the Gospel.
