Publisher's Summary

Although Matthew may not be the first written Gospel, like Isaiah it is positioned first in its sequence of four Gospels. Opening with a 42-generation genealogy, Matthew reminds us of the linear nature of God’s plan, and Matthew forms a link—a swinging door—between the Old and New Testaments. Matthew is a Jew writing for a Jewish audience, and his Gospel provides our first perspective on the birth and public ministry of Jesus Christ. Join Logos Bible Study’s Dr. Bill Creasy as he leads us through this dazzling work.

Audible Editor Reviews

One of the four main gospels, Matthew's carefully structured account provides an in-depth genealogy to show God's purposeful design while linking both the Old and New Testaments. Matthew's story is an earlier account of Jesus' birth and public services, spanning from the Son of God's miraculous birth to his crucifixion and resurrection. Dr. Bill Creasy handles this gospel's stirring rhetoric with intelligence; meanwhile, his straightforward diction and soothing tone make this lecture approachable for all listeners. While occasional background noises can distract, this lesson is overall a fascinating look at one of the world's most important texts.

Best Bible study ever

Any additional comments?

This is the best Bible study I have listened to ever. Dr. Creasy makes the Gospel both understandable and relevant through his insights of context, history and geography. His stories also make it entertaining. He has eliminated the mythology of Jesus and his disciples and made them understandable, flesh and blood friends that I wish I could have known. I am certainly continuing in the study series.

Excellent Bible Study

Any additional comments?

I also posted this on Amazon.com.

Dr. Creasy covers each book verse-by-verse, providing context to the material by explaining other passages in the Bible that may relate to a passage under study, with descriptions of corresponding historical events and the geography and their relationship to the passage, as well as anecdotes from his travels or study. I find it extremely helpful to study the Bible in context with geography and history.

As explained in the opening chapter of Genesis, this study starts with Genesis in the Old Testament, then moves to Matthew in the New Testament, then Exodus and Leviticus in the Old Testament, then back to Mark in the New Testament, and so on. Dr. Creasy does this because 1) if covered in weekly segments, as done in his class, it would be in year 5 before he got to Matthew, and 2) to help show the relationship between Old Testament and New Testament.

This is the second in the Logos Bible Study series, preceded by Genesis and followed by Exodus.

I have been looking for a guideline online, but haven't been able to find one yet. If I find one, I will try to post the next book to be read in each book's review once I complete each book.
