Matthew, The King and His Kingdom

This course is an ideal follow-up study to the basic narrative of Scripture taught in The Bible Timeline study, it is an exciting study that explores the life and mission of Jesus as recorded in the Gospel. Matthew demonstrates how the promises and prophecies of the Old Testament are fulfilled in Christ, who establishes a New Law and inaugurates the Kingdom of Heaven on earth. This study will help participants understand who Jesus is and what his life and teachings mean for us today.
