A Word from the General Editor

            This quarter we have the privilege of studying the second half of the Gospel of Matthew.  Chapters 14-28 of Matthew offer a unique and challenging perspective into the last six months of Jesus’ earthly ministry.  Together, we will discover the true identity of Jesus Christ and the impact He made on the first generation of Christ followers.  This study will enable each of us to get into the ears and hearts of the first disciples as they listen to Jesus, walk with Him, and see their Lord crucified. 

            As important as it is to understand clearly the first-century historical context of the first Gospel in the New Testament, we will also be challenged to hear the teachings of Jesus with our own ears and to follow this Messiah with all our hearts.  There will be some uncomfortable and provoking passages in the last part of Matthew’s Gospel, yet one of Matthew’s primary purposes is that each listener will encounter the prophesied Messiah.  As the Gospel writer indicates, the condition of our hearts will determine our response to the very clear and simple message that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, offers each believer a place in the family of God.
