Matthew’s account of the gospel is the first book in the New Testament and was one of the most popular books in the early church. It gives us a clear and thorough account of who Jesus is and what he accomplished through his life, death, and resurrection.

At the heart of Matthew’s account is the identification of Jesus Christ as the true King of the universe who ushers in the kingdom of heaven. Matthew’s Gospel also gives us a clear picture of discipleship, with all of Jesus’ radical demands on his followers amid a hostile world.

Continuing in Chapter 10, Jesus gives his disciples instructions on how they should act in the world and how they are to respond to the people that interact with them. Richard helps us see how Jesus prepared the twelve, allowing them to be strengthened in their ministry and rest in the power and guidance of the Spirit.
