Chapter 13 - Snapshots of Jesus as seen through the Gospels; Gospel of Matthew: Mark Lanier

Mark introduces today’s class with a reminder of the context of the writers of Mark and Matthew with a focus on Snapshots of Jesus from the Gospel of Matthew. Mark’s Gospel was written on behalf of Peter for a largely Gentile audience, and Matthew’s Gospel was written for the Jewish people.

Today Mark taught three important points about the context of Matthew:

  1. Matthew as a Gospel
  2. The various passages in Matthew in relation to the Jewish audience context.
  3. Points for home: God loves me; God loves you; and watch God at work.

Listen to Mark share how God wove His divine purpose in Matthew’s Gospel and throughout the Bible.
