Matthew's Gospel was written to show that Jesus is the Messiah foretold in the Old Testament. It is carefully arranged by subject matter as a clear explanation to the Jewish people, and to the world, of who Jesus is. Here you will meet Jesus the Great Teacher, the Storyteller, the Prophet the Atoning Sacrifice and much, much more. Charles Prices puts the Gospel into context and helps us to see Jesus through the eyes and ears of Matthew. The Focus On The Bible commentaries offer good practical advice to both the student and lay person. They are easy to read yet help us to think and ponder on the text to enrich our spiritual lives. They are useful to dip into if you have a particular question about a verse or to read from cover to cover to gain a fuller understanding of the book and its context as a whole.
