Matthew

All our morning services from Christmas to Easter inclusive will be based on passages from Matthew’s gospel. Matthew was a tax collector who became one of the first disciples of Jesus. His gospel shows most the Hebrew background to Jesus coming and is littered with Old Testament quotations and allusions. Over the weeks we will aim to get a flavour of the whole gospel. Matthew focuses particularly on the fact that Jesus is the long-promised Messiah (the Christ) for whom the people of Israel were waiting.
