The Gospel of Matthew

While there are many similarities between the four gospels of the life of Christ, each one focuses on a particular aspect of his person and work. Matthew's emphasis is on Jesus as teacher and law-giver, one who surpassed even the great teacher and lawgiver of the Old Testament, Moses himself. Matthew shows how Jesus fulfilled Old Testament scripture as the promised Messiah, and how the unique message he brought - a message of moral and spiritual reform - was the natural consequence and fulfment of everything that had gone before. Matthew has a lot to say about the future of kingdom of heaven, but he emphasises that we must be citizens of that kingdom right now by the way that we live our lives.
