In this Kay Arthur Bible study from Precept Ministries, she shows you that hope was realized in Jesus Christ and chronicled in the Gospel of Matthew.
I want to welcome you to the village of Nazareth. I’m outside a home that is much like the home where Mary lived. We’re about to study the Gospel of Matthew. We’re going to study it in the land of the book where it all happened. And as we open the Gospel of Matthew, Matthew begins right from the beginning with stating that Jesus is the Messiah; that He is the son of David, that He is the son of Abraham. Matthew is about the kingdom of God, the kingdom of heaven. Matthew is about the King who has the right to rule. It opens with, “The record of the genealogy of Jesus the Messiah, the son of David, the son of Abraham.” (Matthew 1:1) It’s so important that the reader understand in this gospel that Jesus has the credentials that certify him as the King of the Jews.
