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

45 Days To Read The Gospel Challenge – The Gospel of Matthew Chapter One: The Prophecy of Jesus

 

OVERVIEW OF  THE GOSPEL OF MATTHEW CHAPTER ONE

Jesus was often called “The Son of David” because he was born of the Virgin Mary.  Mary and her husband Joseph were both from the lineage of King David.  Matthew 1:17  “So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations, and from David until the carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations, and from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ are fourteen generations.”  Matthew tells of a prophetic word that told of Jesus’ birth.  

Matthew 1:23  “Behold, a virgin shall be with child and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.”  It is interesting to note that Joseph wanted to divorce Mary quietly because of her pregnancy.  But an angel came to him and verified that Mary was pregnant by the Holy Ghost.  Therefore, Joseph stayed married to Mary and did not consummate the marriage until Jesus Christ was born. 

Note: Jesus Christ is a name translated. It is accepted by God.  Philippians 2:9 KJV  “Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him and given him a name which is above every name:”  There are many names people call Jesus but it is only one name to be used because if you mispronounce those other names (thinking that is the original name) then you are not calling on the Lord.  It is known that what we pronounce today is not the way it was pronounced then.  Develop a personal relationship with the Lord and you will know his name is God and that he answers to Jesus Christ (the blood sacrifice).  He is the God of the living.  Psalms 100:3 KJV  Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people and the sheep of his pasture.

 

21and she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name jesus for he shall save his people from their sins

Reflection question:  The Bible puts a lot of emphasis on lineage or genealogy.  It’s important to look back on pictures of your family. How do you think your line of genealogy contributed to who you are today in a positive way? You can go back many generations if necessary.

Are there people you have wondered about? Call someone in your family who may be much older than you and ask them about these people. Find out if there are common illnesses (mental or physical)  that run into your family because later that may help you with diagnoses or selecting a mate or having children.

1.  You will learn the lineage or genealogy of Jesus Christ.  Matthew 1: 1-17 KJV

 

1The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham. 2Abraham begat Isaac, and Isaac begat Jacob, and Jacob begat Judas and his brethren; 3And Judas begat Phares and Zara of Thamar, and Phares begat Esrom, and Esrom begat Aram; 4And Aram begat Aminadab, and Aminadab begat Naasson, and Naasson begat Salmon; 5And Salmon begat Booz of Rachab, and Booz begat Obed of Ruth, and Obed begat Jesse; 6And Jesse begat David the king, and David the king begat Solomon of her that had been the wife of Urias; 7And Solomon begat Roboam, and Roboam begat Abia, and Abia begat Asa;

8And Asa begat Josaphat, and Josaphat begat Joram, and Joram begat Ozias; 9And Ozias begat Joatham, and Joatham begat Achaz, and Achaz begat Ezekias; 10And Ezekias begat Manasses, and Manasses begat Amon, and Amon begat Josias; 11And Josias begat Jechonias and his brethren, about the time they were carried away to Babylon: 12And after they were brought to Babylon, Jechonias begat Salathiel; and Salathiel begat Zorobabel; 

13And Zorobabel begat Abiud, and Abiud begat Eliakim, and Eliakim begat Azor; 14And Azor begat Sadoc, and Sadoc begat Achim, and Achim begat Eliud; 14And Azor begat Sadoc, and Sadoc begat Achim, and Achim begat Eliud; 15And Eliud begat Eleazar, and Eleazar begat Matthan; and Matthan begat Jacob; 16And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ. 17So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations, and from David until the carrying away into Babylon is fourteen generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ are fourteen generations.

 

2.  You will learn who sired Jesus Christ.   Matthew 1: 18 KJV

Matthew 1:18  “Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.” 

 

3.  You will learn why Joseph did not divorce Mary.   Matthew 1:19-20 KJV

Matthew 1:19-20.   “Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily.” Note: Joseph knew he had not touched Mary, yet she was pregnant before they married.

20But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.

 

4.  You will learn who named Jesus.  Matthew 1: 21, 24-25 KJV

Matthew 1: 21, 24-25   21And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins….   24Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife: 25And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS.  Note: Actually God named Jesus. 

 

5.  You will learn of an old prophecy that predicted the birth of Jesus and his purpose.  Matthew 1: 22-23 KLV

Matthew 1:22 -23   22Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, 23Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

Romans 10:9-10  9That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness, and with the mouth, confession is made unto salvation.
