What is this book about?
Matthew gives us a thorough, detailed eyewitness account of the life of Jesus. He covers the teachings, parables, and miracles of Jesus, beginning with His birth, and culminating with His ascension.
 
 
How does it point to Jesus?
As the first word from the Spirit after centuries of silence, Matthew gives us a very Jewish Gospel — for Jesus is the new Israel, He is the fulfillment of everything Israel was supposed to be. As a faithful Son of God He is also therefore the Abrahamic hope of the nations.
