Item description for Teaching Matthew: Unlocking the Gospel of Matthew for the Bible Teacher by David Jackman & William Philip...

Matthew's Gospel is a substantial book to consider teaching through--its large sections on teaching and theological reflection seeming to predominate over the 'action' of the story. However, precisely because there are such rich seams of theology, and so much teaching from Jesus himself, it is a wonderful treasure-trove. It also excels as a way of explaining the message of the New Testament gospel so as to open up a sense of its continuity with the whole Old Testament, and the fulfilment of God's covenant promises in Jesus Christ. This is not an exhaustive exposition of the Gospel. The major focus is on Matthew's five great teaching sections. It is not intended to take the place of commentaries but complement them, as few commentaries seem to be written with the sermon (or Bible exposition) as the point of reference that is being worked towards. As we work through Matthew's Gospel, then, the aim is to help the Bible teacher find a way into the text that will enable him to use it for its given purpose: to be proclaimed as the living word of God. That is the point of Scripture, what it is meant for.

Reviews - What do customers think about Teaching Matthew?

Disappointing  Aug 6, 2009
This book is like a super quick overview of the Book of Matthew. I thought it was shallow and unhelpful. If you are looking for details and great insight, I would recommend Charles Price's book called Matthew. I found this author's interpretation to the parables to be off target as well. He missed these points almost entirely:


The Parable of the Sower: He seeks to DISCOURAGE people from the Gospel

The Parable of the Weeds: He seeks to DECEIVE people by leading them astray

The Parable of the Mustard Seed: He seeks to DISTRACT the Kingdom believers from reaching others

The Parable of the Leavened Bread: He seeks to DISTORT the Kingdom message

The first trilogy of parables talks about Satan's opposition to the kingdom.
The second trilogy of parables talks about God's unstoppable plan to redeem the world and judge evil.

The Kingdom to a human's perspective: all negative in nature
Parable: Sower - Many will reject the Kingdom
Parable: Tares - Many false believers (in the world and local churches)
Parable: Mustard seed - false growth (church becoming what it should not be--opens the door to the devil)
Parable: Leavened bread - false doctrine (corruption seeps in)

The Kingdom from God's perspective: all positive in nature
Parable: Buried treasure - God will restore Israel (Israel is God's treasured possession)
(Israel introduced to the Messiah -uncovered; Israel rejects their Messiah - covered up again; Messiah returns to reclaim Israel - Israel receives its Messiah: Just like the story of Joseph and His brothers in Genesis)
Parable: Pearl of Great Price - God will save the Church (Pearls were prized by Gentiles only; they came from an unclean animal; originally it was grit but over time it was gloriously redeemed and formed over time into a precious jewel).
Parable: Dragnet - God will judge unbelievers & reward believers.
Matthew (Focus on the Bible Commentaries)
