Sep 2023 | Matthew

We kick off the Fall with a jump back into the New Testament… the first book of the New Testament, to be exact.  Matthew connects Old and New, with a comprehensive genealogy of Jesus that helps show He is the literal fulfillment of God’s promises as the Lion of Judah, the promised descendant of David. Here we find foundational words and acts of Jesus intentionally designed to display, first to the Jews, the fulfillment of the Law… to clarify the reality of the Kingdom in a way they had not imagined.  Miracles, the Sermon on the Mount, parables and more, paint the reality that was always intended, but as yet unseen.
