12 Mt. 1 Genealogies Birth of Christ

13 Mt. 1:1 [1] The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.

14 Genealogies proved that: 1. He was the promised seed of Abraham 2. He had the right to be King – the right to the throne of David

15 The birth of Jesus: Fulfillment of prophecy Born of a virgin

16 Mt. 2 Wise men Trip to Egypt

17 Mt. 2:1-2 [1] Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, [2] Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.

18 God’s concern for all people

19 Mt. 3 John the Baptizer Baptism of Jesus

20 Mt. 3:1-2 [1] In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea, [2] And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. (Is. 40:3-5)

21 “John prepared the way for Christ by preparing the hearts of the people.” Bob Winton

22 Mt. 3:15 [15] “And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him.” Jesus showed perfect obedience to the will of the Father

23 Mt. 4 Temptation Call of Peter, Andrew, James, and John

24 Mt. 4:1 [1] Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil..

25 Jesus fasted 40 days and 40 nights “tempter” – “devil” – “Satan” Stones to bread – lust of flesh Cast thyself down – pride of life

26 Kingdoms of the world – lust of the eyes Jesus stated – “It is written” Ps. 119:11, “Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.”

27 Mt. 5,6,7 – The Sermon on the Mount “The greatest of all sermons” Likely the best known teaching Jesus did was this sermon This teaching relates to the church, which began in Acts 2 and will continue until the end of time

28 Mt. 5 Beatitudes Salt and light “I am not come to destroy” Agree with thine adversary Adultery

29 Mt. 5 Swearing An eye for an eye Love thy neighbor as thyself

30 Mt. 6 Alms Prayer Fasting Anxiety over earthly things

31 Mt. 7 Judging others Casting pearls before swine Mt. 7:12 (Golden Rule) Two gates, Two ways Warning against false prophets Wise and foolish builders

32 Well known passages from chaps. 5-7 Beatitudes (5:3-12) – “Beatitude” is from a Latin word meaning blessed Anxiety (6:25-34) “Golden Rule” – (7:12)

33 Mt. 8 – Many miracles Leper cleansed Centurion’s servant healed Peter’s mother-in-law healed “The Son of man hath not where to lay his head” Storm stilled Two demon possessed men healed

34 Mt. 9 – More miracles A paralytic cured Call of Matthew Christ eats with sinners Questions about fasting Two blind men healed

35 Mt. 9 – More miracles Demon cast out of a man who could not speak Laborers needed for the harvest

36 Jesus had been teaching in Mt. 5- 7 In Chaps. 8-9 we see Him doing He practiced what He taught THE MIRACLES CONFIRMED THAT HE WAS WHO HE SAID HE WAS

37 Jn. 20:30-31 [30] And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book: [31] But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.

38 Mt. 10 The 12 chosen The limited commission This work of the Apostles here, was in preparation of the coming kingdom/church – after the resurrection Christ gave the “unlimited” or Great Commission

39 Mt. 11 Disciples from John and their question The greatness of John Certain cities rebuked “Come unto me”

40 Mt. 11:11 [11] Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.

41 Those in the church/kingdom greater because (1) their sins were forgiven (2) They enjoy full fellowship with Christ in the church/kingdom

42 Mt. 12 Lord of the Sabbath -- disciples eating grain on the Sabbath Man with a withered hand “He that is not with me is against me” Sign of Jonah His brethren come for him

43 Mt. 12:30 [30] He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.

49 Mt. 14 John is beheaded Jesus feeds the 5000 Jesus walks on water

50 John’s stand for the truth cost him his life Mt. 14:4 – “it is not lawful for thee to have her”

51 Mt. 11:28-30 [28] Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. [29] Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. [30] For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
