The Matthew Challenge

Who is Jesus?

No one is better qualified to answer that question than someone who lived and walked with Jesus while he was on earth. Matthew, one of Jesus’ disciples, was such a man.

Matthew helped eat the loaves and fish when Jesus fed the 5,000 men who gathered with their wives and children on the shores of the Sea of Galilee. He was along that night when Jesus came walking on the water to meet the disciples in the middle of the sea. He was also along when Jesus calmed the storm that threatened to sink their little fishing boat. These were happenings no man could forget, no matter how long he lived.

Jesus took every opportunity He could to teach his disciples about His Father and the kingdom of heaven. He pulled simple lessons from nature as they walked the pathways of rural Galilee and Judea. Birds, flowers, farmers, and fishermen all be illustrations He used in His teaching–a teaching so profound it changed the world.

So who is Jesus? Take the “Matthew challenge,” reading a chapter a day, to help answer this question. This book includes the complete text of the Gospel of Matthew, as well as thoughts and questions to guide you into understanding who Jesus really is.
