Summary of Gospel of Matthew – Chapter 2

Jesus was born in “Bethlehem of Judaea” (also spelled Judea, or Judah) a small town near Jerusalem in the days of Herod the king. Three wise men from the east to Jerusalem came to see the baby, Jesus.  The three wise men saw the star in the east that guided them to his location.  Note:  The star is known as The Star of Bethlehem, or Christmas Star.  Jesus is also known as the morning star.   Revelation 22″16 KJV

King Herod also known as ” Herod the Great”, was a Roman king of Judaea. He sent the wise men and told them to locate Jesus and tell him where he was so he could worship him but actually, he wanted to find Jesus to kill him.  The three men went and found Mary and Joseph.  They saw the baby Jesus and fell down and worshipped him. They presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.  Gifts fit for a king.  Matthew 2:2 “Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.”

Note: There was a prophecy that this baby would be the king of the Jews and a star will shine when he was born so the wise man saw the star.  Later upon Jesus Crucifixion, Jesus was named King of Jews in a mockery manner. The mockery brought on the destruction of Jerusalem as predicted. 

It had been prophesized  that  Matthew 2:6  “And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Judea, art not the least among the princes of Judea: for out of thee shall come to a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel.”  The wise men never returned to Herod to betray the location of Jesus.  Herod was so angry that he ordered all children under two years of age was to be slain in an effort to find Jesus.  Again fulfilling a prophecy.  Matthew 2:17-18 KJV 17Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying, 18In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not. 

An angel advised Mary and Joseph to flee with the child to safety.   

Matthew 2: 14-23  14When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt: 15And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Out of Egypt have I called my son.  After Herod’s death, Joseph and his family return from Egypt and dwell in Nazareth. 23 “And he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets, He shall be called a Nazarene.”
