Bible Text: Matthew 1:1-25 |


Roger introduces the theme of the kingdom in Matthew, setting out the book’s context and place within the four gospels, its unique emphasis and clear messianic interest. He gives an overview of the structure and then looks at chapter 1: Matthew’s genealogy of Jesus (compared with Luke’s), and the virgin birth, including an in-depth study of the Isaiah passage quoted here.
