Overview of the Gospel of Matthew

Matthew’s name means “Gift of the Lord”, a tax collector who left everything to follow Jesus Christ as an apostle (disciple).  His former name was Levi, the tax collector.  Matthew wrote the Gospel of Matthew. He wrote it for people who converted from Judaism. This Gospel demonstrates that Jesus Christ is the King and Messiah of Israel.  His works support that Jesus Christ is the fulfillment of all of the old testament prophecies of the coming of the Messiah.

 “This book describes Jesus’s genealogy, his miraculous birth and childhood, his baptism and temptation, his ministry of healing and preaching, and finally his crucifixion and resurrection. The resurrected Jesus commissions his Apostles to “go and make disciples of all nations.”  Source: Retrieved from the internet on 11/16/2021 from The New World Encyclopedia.  https://www.newworldencyclopedia.org/entry/Gospel_of_Matthew

OVERVIEW OF  THE GOSPEL OF MATTHEW CHAPTER FOUR

 Jesus went into the wildness where he fasted and prayed for 40 days and 40 nights. Afterward, he was hungry.  Satan came to Jesus and asked him to prove that he was the Son of God by turning stones into bread, jumping off a cliff to see if the angels would catch him, and lastly,  Satan offered Jesus the whole world if he would bow down to him. Jesus answered each time with scripture. He did not use a miracle just the word of God. Satan left him.

Note: It should be noted that Satan knows the bible well as he quotes it to Jesus. This demonstrates that many will come as false prophets and not be with God.  It is important to learn the bible for yourself so when you are tempted you will be able to speak the “Word of God” and have victory in Jesus Christ.  You will know the will of God and his timing.   Matthew 4:4  “But he answered and said, It is written, “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.” 

Satan also offered Jesus the whole world. Before Jesus’ was born in the flesh, his diety was witnessed by John the Baptist.  Jesus is the Word that became flesh.  All things were made by him.  Therefore, Jesus is the creator of the world – God.  The Word that became flesh.  In the flesh, born of a woman (begotten), the Son of God.

John 1: 3-5KJV  1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2The same was in the beginning with God.  3All things were made by him, and without him was not anything made that was made. 4In him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.   John 1:14  “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” 

Colossians 2: 8-10 KJV  8Beware lest any man spoils you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. 9For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. 10And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:

Satan did not own what he was offering.  He will take credit for God’s work and he will offer what he does not own.   Isaiah 54:5  “For thy Maker is your husband; the LORD of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called.”

Jesus fulfills another prophecy:   Jesus heard that John the Baptist was put in prison.  Jesus left Galilee and traveled until he came to Capernaum, which is upon the sea coast, in the borders of Zabulon and Nephthalim and preached.  Thus fulfilling another prophecy by  Esaias, that the Messiah (light) would come into   Matthew 4:15-16 KJV   15″ the land of Zabulon, and the land of Nephthalim, by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles. 16 “The people which sat in darkness saw a great light, and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up.”  17“From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” 

Note:  When you leave this earth, that is the end of the world for YOU.  Be ready so you don’t have to get ready.  Many cities and nations fell with no survivors, it was not the end of the world but it was for the ones that left here, whether it is one person or 50,000 at one time.

Jesus calls Peter and Andrew, James and John, they were all fishermen.  Matthew 4:19  “And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.

Jesus heals the sick.  Matthew 4:23-24KJV   23And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people. 24And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatic, and those that had the palsy; and he healed them.

 1.  Jesus handles temptation from Satan.   Matthew 4: 1-11KJV 

1Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. 2And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward hungry. 3And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. 4But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. 

5Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple, 6And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands, they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. 7Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.

8Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; 9And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee if thou will fall down and worship me. 10Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. 11Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him. 

 

 2.  Jesus fulfilled a prophecy when he arrived and preached in  Capernaum.  Matthew 4: 12-17 KJV

12Now when Jesus had heard that John was cast into prison, he departed into Galilee; 13And leaving Nazareth, he came and dwelt in Capernaum, which is upon the sea coast, in the borders of Zabulon and Nephthalim: 14That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, 15The land of Zabulon, and the land of Nephthalim, by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles; 16The people which sat in darkness saw a great light, and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up. 17From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

Note:  When you leave this earth, that is the end of the world for YOU.  Be ready so you don’t have to get ready.  Many cities and nations fell with no survivors, it was not the end of the world but it was for the ones that left here, whether it is one person or 50,000 at one time.

 

 3.  The promise Jesus made when he called Peter and Andrew, James and John into discipleship.  Matthew 4: 18-22 KJV

18And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers. 19And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men. 20And they straightway left their nets and followed him. 21And going on from thence, he saw other two brethren, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in a ship with Zebedee their father, mending their nets; and he called them. 22And they immediately left the ship and their father and followed him.

 

 4   The many different types of miraculous healings Jesus performed.  Matthew 4: 23-25 KJV

 23And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people. 24And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatic, and those that had the palsy; and he healed them. 25And there followed him great multitudes of people from Galilee, and from Decapolis, and from Jerusalem, and from Judaea, and from beyond Jordan.
