Week 9aThe book of Matthew is the firstGospelan account of Jesuslife and ministry in the NewTestament.In Matthew Jesus teaches people what it means to be part of his kingdom, the kingdom of heaven.He is betrayed and crucified. He rises again and commissions His disciples to spread the good news.The apostle Matthew seems to have written this Gospel to a Christian audience who was either Jewish or highly familiar with the Jewish religion. Matthew presents Jesus as the Messiah,the promised descendant ofKing Davidwho would bring Gods kingdom to earth and establish atime of peace and justice. Matthew quotes the Old Testament extensively, and places special emphasis on Jesusfulfillment of prophecies which would have been important to a Jewish audience. Matthew tells us the story of Jesus with an emphasis on His role as Messiah, or Christ:Jesus is the son of God.He is conceived by the Holy Spirit in Mary
