The Gospel of Matthew — Prophesy Fulfilled, The King and the Kingdom!
Matthew, more than any of the Gospel writers, connects events and utterances in the life of our Lord with the Old Testament predictions. Written originally for the Jews, the Gospel presents Christ as Son of David, and the Son of Abraham. The people of Israel were waiting for the Messiah, their king. Matthew shows how Jesus Christ was a descendent of David and shows that God did not send Jesus to be an earthly King, but a heavenly king. His Kingdom would be much greater than David's because it would never end. Let this study help you recognize Jesus for who he really is, celebrate his victory over evil and death, and worship him as King of our lives.
