The gospel of Matthew, chronicled by one who personally journeyed with Jesus during His earthly ministry, is a unique account since it is generally agreed that it was written with a Jewish audience in mind. As such, great care is taken in providing detail that substantiates Jesus as the Christ, the promised Messiah. No other gospel focuses so strongly on the divine aspects of the King and His kingdom. No other gospel provides such detail of the Sermon on the Mount. No other gospel so thoroughly links Jesus as the fulfillment of all Old Testament prophecies.True, the concept of Jesus as God's anointed King over Israel is the point around which the Jewish people must wrestle, for if Jesus is the Messiah, then where is His kingdom? Indeed, the skeptical Gentile can ask this question as well. They, like each of us, must realign their concept of the kingdom and understand the full impact of Matthew's personal testimony concerning Jesus, His life, His death, His resurrection, and the salvation that He offers to them and, indeed, to the whole world!
Practical Christianity Foundation is a not-for-profit research Foundation organized in 1997 for the purpose of producing an easy-to-read devotional commentary series on the books of the Bible. Our goal is to encourage instruction and devotional meditation for individuals and small groups in matters of life and faith in God through His Son Jesus Christ in a study of God's Holy Word.Practical Christianity Foundation offers the global Christian community a simple, easy-to-read devotional commentary on the books of the Bible to encourage and nurture biblical instruction and meditation. In both the written and electronic editions, passages of verse-by-verse commentary are developed immediately following each verse and are summarized by notes and applications designed to apply the focus of the passage to the life and faith of those who follow Jesus Christ. Both the electronic and print versions of the Devotional Commentaries offer the reader a valuable resource, rich in godly and Christ-centered substance necessary for knowledge, understanding, wisdom, and worship.The comments are interpretive. However, the essence of the work is devotional. Each paragraph is a result of the collaborative deliberation that comes from deep personal meditation, intentional research, and faithful application arising from the conviction that the Bible is the word of the Lord to His people. God's Word is reliable, trustworthy, and God-revealing. We believe that when the Bible speaks, God Himself speaks. It is the Truth that brings sinners to repentance and guides their journey throughout their redeemed lives in Christ.We pray that this commentary series would lead unbelievers to Christ and enrich the lives of those who have been redeemed. We pray that each believer walk in the joy of the Lord, enduring the troubles of this world through the peace that only God can give. In all things, we lift up the Name of Jesus to the glory of God the Father and continue to humbly pray that He would graciously and mercifully reveal Himself through the study of His Word.
