In a few weeks my church will be starting a new sermon series on the book of Matthew. Now one of the things that I believe in is interpreting scripture in community. So I would love to hear what God is saying to you as you read the book of Matthew.
Here are a couple of questions that apply specifically to the beginning of Matthew:
  1. What is the main purpose of the gospel of Matthew? What was Matthew trying to accomplish?
  2. On September 20 the sermon will be on the genealogies in chapter 1. Why did Matthew include these? What do you think is there purpose and significance?
Please don't be limited by these questions. If you come across anything interesting about the gospel of Matthew I would really love to hear about it.
