The importance of the Gospel of Matthew in church history cannot be overstated. For Jewish readers, it affirmed the Messiahship of Jesus, referring consistently to the Scriptures to establish his credentials. For Gentile disciples, it provided powerful and dramatic support of their inclusion in God’s kingdom. The cross of Christ had removed the division between Jew and non-Jew, and through Matthew’s writings, we see Israel’s God drawing the entire world to himself through Jesus.
In Matthew, A Video Study, together with the accompany commentary in the NIV Application Commentary series, professor Michael Wilkins explains Matthew’s broad appeal not only to his ancient readers, but also to us today. Exploring the links between the Bible and our own times, Wilkins shares perspectives on Matthew’s Gospel that reveal its enduring relevance for our twenty-first century lives. Enlightening for students, lay learners, pastors, and theologians alike, Matthew, A Video Study, is part of Zondervan’s Beyond the Basics video series, bringing teaching from some of today’s most prominent scholars and teachers to interested learners.
