This week, we continue our walk through the Bible as we had before we paused for Easter. The Gospel of Matthew tells the story of Jesus’ birth, life, death and resurrection as a continuation and fulfillment of the whole Biblical story of God and Israel. Matthew begins with details of how Jesus descends from the line of David, making him a king. It proceeds to share Jesus’ teachings that prove he’s an authoritative teacher like Moses. Throughout the book, we see that Jesus is Emmanuel, or God with us, and welcomes everyone into the upside down kingdom where leaders serve.
