Behold the King: Encountering Jesus in the Gospel of Matthew
Ecce Homo, by Munkácsy (1896)

It’s been called the teacher’s gospel because of its orderliness and structure. And it’s been called the catechist’s gospel because of its rich teaching contents. The Gospel of Matthew, the first book of the New Testament, tells of the incarnate ministry of our Lord Jesus Christ, who took on human flesh, preached the good news of salvation, and offered himself on the Cross for the life of the world. Matthew, especially, brings to fruition the hopes of the Old Testament that longed for the son of David to come and redeem his people and establish God’s Kingdom on earth, as it is in heaven. In this course, our aim will be to wade through the Gospel of Matthew with attentive ears and prayerful hearts, which will enable us to encounter the incarnate Lord, the great teacher and healer of mankind, and ultimately—to borrow from Tolkien—to behold the Return of the King.
