Item description for Matthew: A Guide for Reflection and Prayer (Daily Bible Commentary) by John Proctor...
Overview Jesus of Nazareth is the most influential person who ever lived. His first-century biographers believed this and had to choose which details of his life and teachings to include and how to present them. The message of Matthew's gospel is thoroughly practical, and highlights Jesus' teaching about commitment, lifestyle, and relationships. Simultaneously, it is a deeply spiritual book that stresses how Jesus clearly fulfilled Old Testament prophecies that foretold the coming Messiah. Matthew offered his record of Christ's birth and life, cross and resurrection, to encourage and challenge the Christians he knew. John Proctor helps today's reader listen closely to Matthew the Evangelist, take his history seriously, and better know the Son of God who promised to be "with you always, to the end of time."
Publishers Description The Daily Bible Commentary is systematic and rich in research, yet devotional and reflective in tone. It is perfect for preachers, lay people, teachers, ministers in training, students? and anyone who wants to understand the Bible better and draw closer to God on a daily basis. This is the volume on Matthew.
