The Gospel Of Matthew

Product code: 278052


Twelve passages take you on a journey through The Gospel of Matthew, and help you to appreciate it more fully and pray it more deeply. Each session of 'Take and Read' begins with Hear the word of God, and provides the chosen text from the New Revised Standard Version. Understand the word of God gives an explanation of the text, with quotations from the Fathers and from Church documents in the margins. All this is richly illustrated with Christian art and inspiring photographs. Finally, Live the word of God offers suggestions for reflection and prayer, so that the Scriptures may have a genuine impact on our daily lives.

The Gospel of Matthew presents Jesus to us as the great teacher, who in the Sermon on the Mount and his other speeches offers new teaching to a new community drawn from Jews and Gentiles. The disciples are instructed to bring the good news to all nations of the earth. This gospel of the church has much to offer us today.
