Matthew’s Message

Matthew by Frans Hals
Matthew by Frans Hals

The gospel according to Matthew proclaims… Jesus is the Messiah. In Him God’s kingdom or rule has begun. His coming sets before us life and death, salvation and judgment. Choose salvation and life. Repent and believe.

“Matthew’s gospel… is a proclamation of Christ. That Jesus is the Christ is the great truth that forms the basis of the entire narrative [of His life, death and resurrection]. ” – Herman Ridderbos on Matthew 1:1

“At the heart of [Christ’s] ministry is proclamation of a message identical with that of John the Baptist (3:2) and later to be echoed by Jesus’ disciples (10:7). Jesus calls for a decisive response to a new situation, the arrival in his ministry of the kingdom of heaven.” – Richard T. France on Matthew 4:17
