Hi, my name is Shawn Titus and I am in the Marquette Home Group led
by Keith and Shelley. Speaking of Keith, I think I will just refer to him as
Ootlatch from now on (One Of The Leaders Around This Church).
Today we are going to watch a video from the BibleProject about the
book of Matthew. But first, think about what you know about the book
- What is Matthew’s purpose?
- What is the main point?
- What is unique to Matthew vs the other gospels?
Overview: Matthew Chapters 1-13
It is good for me to be reminded of the connection between Jesus and
the Old Testament and the comparison with Moses. I know that in my
head, but not being a Jew from that time it can be hard to keep in mind
Reflect on the following questions:
- They talk about 3 main points (Messiah from the line of David, New Moses, and God with us). How do each of these apply/speak to you?
- They also have a couple interesting things for us to keep in mind as we read Matthew in the coming days. As you work through the passages, consider looking up the Old Testament quotations and look closely at the people who accept Jesus.
