Matthew Part 1 covers the first 13 chapters of Matthew. The nine-session study includes: Preparing to Study Matthew; Introducing Jesus the Messiah; Proclaiming That the Kingdom Is at Hand; Teaching Kingdom Living; Seeking Only His Kingdom; Presenting Jesus; Messiah through His Miracles; Sending the Disciples on His Mission; Jesus the Messiah Meets Growing Opposition; Unlocking Secrets of the Kingdom through Parables. As you progress through this 9-session study, you will deepen your understanding of who Jesus is, and what He has done for you. This study is part of the LifeLight Bible study series of in-depth studies of Bible books. The goal of LifeLight is that through a regular program of in-depth personal and group study of Scripture, more and more Christian adults may grow in their personal faith in Jesus Christ.
