Who was Jesus? What was His mission? The gospel of Matthew opens the New Testament with a rich portrait of the Messiah who fulfills God's promises to Israel and proclaims the coming of God's kingdom. In this volume, Dr. R.C. Sproul explores the events of Jesus' life, from His miraculous birth to His triumphant resurrection, and explains some of His most famous teachings, including the Sermon on the Mount and the Great Commission. As Dr. Sproul looks back on these crucial moments in history, he also provides pastoral wisdom on how the church is to worship and serve in the present age.
Dr. Sproul's expositional commentaries help you understand key theological themes and apply them to all areas of your life. Drawn from decades of careful study and delivered from a pastor's heart, these sermons are readable, practical, and thoroughly Bible-centered. Here is your opportunity to learn from a trusted teacher and theologian as he leads you through God's Word and shares his perspective on living faithfully for God's glory. This is a series to serve pastors, small groups, and growing Christians who want to know the Bible better.
