1 Resurrection Sunday! We will read part of the 1st Chapter of Matthew and look at it today, and then toward the end of class, we will consider a little about the resurrection >>>>>>>> Click to review last week:

2 Summary of last week: Genesis 15:18 NASU
On that day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, "To your descendants I have given this land, From the river of Egypt as far as the great river, the river Euphrates: Let’s look at just a couple of things from last week’s introduction to Matthew… }}}}}}}}} Click for verse… The main thing we need to remember, is that the Jews in Jesus’ day KNEW the Land was theirs! - Not the Romans’ Remember, the Jews had been Ruled by: The Assyrians The Babylonians The Medo-Persians The Greeks and Now the Romans - IN THEIR Land! >>>>>>>>>> Click for next...

3 4 Biographies of Jesus: There are 4 biographies of the life of Jesus
We call these biographies of Jesus - Gospels (Good News) Each of the 4 authors apparently had a specific audience in mind when they wrote their biography, so they each have a different emphasis based on their intended audience Matthew seems to be writing to Jews, Mark to the Romans, Luke to the Gentiles, and John to everyone This gives us 4 similar, yet different accounts and so we have more details than we would have if there was only one AND… Just because Matthew’s intended audience was primarily Jews doesn’t mean that we can’t learn a lot from it! }}}}}}}}}}}}}} Click to continue…

4 4 Biographies of Jesus: Each of the writers has a little different emphasis as they tell the story. And each seems to emphasize a different aspect of Jesus that was prophesied in the Old Testament… }}}}}}}}}}}} Click to continue….

5 Zechariah 9:9 NASU Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout in triumph, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your king is coming to you; He is just and endowed with salvation, Humble, and mounted on a donkey, Even on a colt, the foal of a donkey. Matthew presents Jesus as King >>>>>>>>>>> Click for next…

6 Isaiah 42:1 NASU "Behold, My Servant, whom I uphold; My chosen one in whom My soul delights. I have put My Spirit upon Him; He will bring forth justice to the nations. Mark presents Jesus as servant >>>>>>>>>>> Click for next…

7 Zechariah 6:12 & 13 NASU "Then say to him, 'Thus says the LORD of hosts, "Behold, a man whose name is Branch, for He will branch out from where He is; and He will build the temple of the LORD.

8 throne. Thus, He will be a priest on His throne, and the counsel of peace will be between the two offices."' Luke presents Jesus as the PERFECT man >>>>>>>>>>> Click for next…

9 Isaiah 40:9-11 NASU Get yourself up on a high mountain, O Zion, bearer of good news, Lift up your voice mightily, O Jerusalem, bearer of good news; Lift it up, do not fear. Say to the cities of Judah, "Here is your God!" (10) Behold, the Lord GOD will come with might, With His arm ruling for Him. Behold, His reward is with Him And His

10 recompense before Him. (11) Like a shepherd He will tend His flock, In His arm He will gather the lambs And carry them in His bosom; He will gently lead the nursing ewes. John presents Jesus as God Even though each of the 4 Gospels have their own emphasis, they still point out other aspects. For example; Matthew shows Jesus as King, Mark shows Jesus as servant, Luke shows Jesus as man, John shows Jesus as God, but Matthew shows Him as servant, man, and God too, and they all do the same thing, they just emphasize one thing more. >>>>>>>>>>> Click for next…

11 Again, we are just going to take a tour of the book of
Matthew… I am just a tour-guide    I am going to point out the things I find interesting and want to make a note of Remember, Pastor Don has been saying in his sermons lately, The Bible is given to us so we can get to know God and His will So as we study ANY book of the Bible, our goal should be to get to know God more And to learn His will for our lives - How He wants us to live! >>>>>>>>> Click to begin Ch 1...

12 Matthew Chapter 1 We are going to start by looking at verses 1-17 of Chapter 1 This is the genealogy of Jesus as recorded by Matthew Let’s turn to Chapter 1 and read verse 17… READ VERSE Now if you look at the books of Genesis, 1 & 2 Kings, and 1 & 2 Chronicles, you will see that Matthew left out a few people in his genealogy. This was common in Jewish genealogies, they would leave out some who maybe were insignificant, or maybe negative. }}}}}}}}}}} click to continue...

13 Matthew Chapter 1 They would use the term son of... to mean ANY descendant or the term father of… in the same way. So, just because it says so and so became the father of so and so, does not mean that they were a direct father, they may have been grandfather, great grandfather, etc. When we say son or father, we mean that literally, but they didn’t So in Matthew’s genealogy, he is accurate, he just skipped over some And one reason for doing this is so that it can easily be remembered or memorized. So in verse 17 it shows us how they were very neatly organized to make it easier to remember. }}}}}}}}}}}}}}}} Click to continue…

14 As I said last week, we will look at just a small part of
the video of the Gospel of Matthew in the Visual Bible Series They just read the text word for word and act out what’s being read (1984 NIV version) I think they do a good job of illustrating Matthew’s genealogy and what we just talked about, so instead of reading verses 1-17, we will listen to them being read and watch the video… WATCH VIDEO - verses (less than 5 min.) Can you see how they illustrated the idea of this genealogy being memorized so it could be passed on? >>>>>>>>>>>>> Click for next…

15 Matthew 1:1 NASU The record of the genealogy of Jesus the Messiah, the son of David, the son of Abraham: READ VERSE Matthew tells us in the first verse what his purpose is… He wants to show us the family line of the Messiah… He wants to prove to us that Jesus IS the Messiah (the promised anointed one - King of the Jews) Let’s look at a few verses that the Jews would have been familiar with, that show the promised one would come… }}}}}}}}}}}}} Click to continue…

16 Genesis 12:1-3 NASU Now the LORD said to Abram, "Go forth from your country, And from your relatives And from your father's house, To the land which I will show you; (2) And I will make you a great nation, And I will bless you, And make your name great; And so you shall be a blessing; ************* By the way, as I mentioned last week, I really am one who likes to have you look up and turn to the passages we are going to read, but I will have so many references to turn to and our time is limited... So I will just have most, if not all of the passages up on the screen for you just to save time, even though that is not my first choice. READ VERSES }}}}}}}}} Click to continue…

17 (3) And I will bless those who bless you, And the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed." And also later in Genesis 22… }}}}}}}}}} Click for verse….

18 Genesis 22:18 NASU "In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice." READ VERSE Here, in an obscure way, God was promising the Messiah… We can see from Galatians it is pointing to faith in Jesus… }}}}}}}}}}}} Click for verses...

19 Galatians 3:7-9 NASU Therefore, be sure that it is those who are of faith who are sons of Abraham. (8) The Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel beforehand to Abraham, saying, "ALL THE NATIONS WILL BE BLESSED IN YOU." (9) So then those who are of faith are blessed with Abraham, the believer. READ VERSES So, Matthew starts by showing us that Jesus is descended from Father Abraham Also, there was a promise in Genesis 49… }}}}}}}}}}}}}} click for verse...

20 Genesis 49:9 & 10 NASU "Judah is a lion's whelp; From the prey, my son, you have gone up. He couches, he lies down as a lion, And as a lion, who dares rouse him up? (10) "The scepter shall not depart from Judah, Nor the ruler's staff from between his feet, Until Shiloh comes, And to him shall be the obedience of the peoples. READ VERSES “The scepter” referred to a ruler’s rod or wand or staff like thing that represented authority. So, even here in Jacob’s blessings there was a reference to the coming Messiah Next, he shows that Jesus is descended from David who also was promised something concerning the Messiah… }}}}}}}}}}}}}} Click for verses...

21 2 Samuel 7:8-13 NASU "Now therefore, thus you shall say to My servant David, 'Thus says the LORD of hosts, "I took you from the pasture, from following the sheep, to be ruler over My people Israel. (9) "I have been with you wherever you have gone and have cut off all your enemies from before you; and I will make you a great name, like the READ VERSES }}}}}}}}} Click to continue…

23 enemies. The LORD also declares to you that the LORD will make a house for you. (12) "When your days are complete and you lie down with your fathers, I will raise up your descendant after you, who will come forth from you, and I will establish his kingdom. (13) "He shall build a house for My name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever. And also in Isaiah, God re-affirms this promise… }}}}}}}}}}}}} Click for Isaiah verses…

24 Isaiah 9:6 & 7 NASU For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.

25 peace, On the throne of David and over his kingdom, To establish it and to uphold it with justice and righteousness From then on and forevermore. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will accomplish this. We can see that the Messiah was promised to be descended from David The Jews knew all these promises, and so Matthew shows through his genealogy, that Jesus has the right lineage to be the Messiah }}}}}}}}}}}}}} Click to continue...

26 Now, you may have noticed that Matthew’s genealogy goes
from Abraham to Jacob, the husband of Mary, the mother of Jesus. But Jacob was not his father! … God was! So why show the genealogy of Jacob? In the Jews’ minds, the legal genealogy came from the father only. A person got their identity from the father and all their rights from the father and the father’s family. }}}}}}}}}}}}} Click for verse...

27 Luke 3:23 NASU When He began His ministry, Jesus Himself was about thirty years of age, being, as was supposed, the son of Joseph, the son of Eli, READ VERSE Everyone supposed Jesus was the son of Joseph… Matthew is writing to Jews... So, Matthew goes with that, and shows the Jews the genealogy of Joseph, the “father” of Jesus - Matthew’s genealogy was the “legal” genealogy of Jesus >>>>>>>>>>>> Click for next...

28 Did you notice? … Tamar Rahab Ruth Bathsheba Mary Did you notice…
These were mentioned in the genealogy… }}}}}} Click for Tamar }}}}}} Click for Rahab }}}}}} Click for Ruth }}}}}} Click for Bathsheba }}}}}} Click for Mary 5 Women! - This was a man’s society, women were not usually mentioned in a genealogy }}}}}}}}}}}}}}}} Click to continue...

29 Did you notice… Tamar Rahab Ruth Bathsheba Mary
Let me read an excerpt from the a book by Yoel H. Kahn on Jewish traditions… These traditions would have been in place at the time of Jesus… “The traditional prayer book of the Jews includes a sequence of three blessings in which a MAN thanks God for NOT making him a gentile, a woman, or a slave!” This shows how the Jews felt about gentiles, slaves, and women. Yet Matthew includes these five women in his genealogy! I think there are a couple of things going on here… }}}}}}}}}}}}} Click to continue...

30 Did you notice… Tamar Rahab Ruth Bathsheba Mary
I will only look at one here, and we will look at the other later… I think Matthew is giving a clue that Jesus came for ALL people - women included In a culture where men dominated, Jesus himself talked to women, treated them with respect, etc and I think Matthew is giving a little clue to that by including theses women in his genealogy We will look at these women in more detail next time… >>>>>>>>>> Click for next...

31 Luke 24:1-6 NASU But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they came to the tomb bringing the spices which they had prepared. (2) And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb, (3) but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. (4) While they READ VERSES }}}}}}}}}}}}} Click to continue…

(6) "He is not here, but He has risen. Remember how He spoke to you while He was still in Galilee, As we think about the resurrection today, I want to just read a number of scriptures and comment on them briefly… }}}}}}}}}}}}} Click for question...

43 John 19:28-30 NASU After this, Jesus, knowing that all things had already been accomplished, to fulfill the Scripture, *said, "I am thirsty." (29) A jar full of sour wine was standing there; so they put a sponge full of the sour wine upon a branch of hyssop and brought it up to His mouth. READ VERSES }}}}}}}}}}}}}} Click to continue…

44 (30) Therefore when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, "It is finished!" And He bowed His head and gave up His spirit. I know I have said this before, but when He said; It is finished!” - This was a victory cry! He had done everything the Father sent Him to do PERFECTLY! But that was not the end… }}}}}}}}}}} Click for verse...

46 Resurrection Sunday! That’s what we are celebrating today!
????? Sing Hallelujah, What a Savior ? Luke 24:5 NASU ... the men said to them, "Why do you seek the living One among the dead? Bill Bright (The founder of Campus Crusade for Christ who went home to be with the LORD in 2003) once went to the Holy Land and when he came to the traditional place of the garden tomb, he was anticipating having a very moving experience. He got there and really expected to have spiritual experience of some kind. After all, this may have been the place where they laid His LORD after He was crucified. This would be a wonderful place of reflection, and to experience the presence of God. He sat down and began to reflect on the events of the cross and the tomb, etc. And he waited… }}}}}}}}}}} Click to continue…

47 Resurrection Sunday! And NOTHING! – He didn’t feel anything… He waited more, and still nothing! Then the words came to him; “Why do you seek the living One among the dead?” - That’s the bottom line: You don’t go to a special place to experience Jesus; He’s alive and lives in all believers. <<<<<<< End
