The Gospels – The Gospel According to Matthew
Welcome to the commentaries on the Gospel According to Matthew. This Gospel is regarded by most people as the most Jewish of the Gospels because it more than the others tried to link Jesus all the way back to Abraham and therefore, in his own mind giving Jesus some legitimacy in the eyes of His detractors. It tried to portray Jesus as the expected Messiah by citing numerous quotations from Isaiah and the other prophets to buttress his points.
It is a most beautifully written Gospel and the language and style is certainly uplifting. Please find below the headers as guides to the commentaries. It is hoped that readers find it within themselves to follow the narrative with an open mind and through the Grace of the Almighty come to a better understanding of His Word as revealed through Jesus.
