"The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him 'Immanuel'-which means, 'God with us.'" Matthew 1:23, NIV
God with Us. No phrase could better describe the life and ministry of Jesus as chronicled by the apostle Matthew. Through the pages of Matthew's Gospel we get a glimpse of Jesus-the Messiah, the promised Son of God.
Read God with Us and encounter the living Christ face-to-face!
o Follow Jesus from his humble beginnings in a stable to His baptism by John and His triumphant victory over the temptations of Satan.
o Listen as He explains God and His kingdom to His disciples: "Blessed are the poor in spirit . . . The kingdom of Heaven is like a king who prepared a wedding banquet for his son . . . Love your neighbor as yourself."
o Marvel at the power Jesus displays-power to heal, to save, to bring new life!
o Follow the Son of God to the cross-and beyond!
This thorough yet practical study of Matthew's Gospel is a must for any Christian who desires a complete understanding of who Jesus Christ is, why He came to earth, how He is related to the Old Testament, and how His life, death, and resurrection can energize daily life.
