The Gospel According to Matthew 1

Week 1: Matthew begins his Gospel by anchoring Jesus into the heart of the Jewish faith. By starting with Abraham, connecting David, and then running the genealogy to the Exhile, Matthew presents Jesus as the Messiah that emerges from the greater story of the Jewish faith. In Week 1, we’ll study the infancy narrative and how God’s plan came to us through a Child- steeped in the rich history of the Jewish text, the Torah- their story.
