    <p class=”MsoNormal”><span style=”font-size: 10.0pt; line-height: 107%;”>The main themes of the Book of Matthew were: <sup>1</sup>Christ being the fulfillment of the Messiah prophesied in the Old Testament (Matt. 1:1-2:23), <sup>2</sup>the Disciples being called to a New Covenant (8:1–11:1), <sup>3</sup>the instruction of the Great Commission (Matt. 28:18-20), and <sup>4</sup>the promise of salvation being available to all people (entire Book of Matthew). The Book of Matthew recounts more prophecies of Jesus being the Messiah than any other of the Gospels. Matthew was a scribe and was responsible for recording, what is thought to be the first of the Gospels written, around 50 to 65 A.D., an overlapping of Christianity and Judaism. Before he became an apostle and spent time with Jesus, he was a tax collector. After Jesus’ ascension, Matthew spent approximately 15 years preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ in Palestine and other nations. Matthew often used the term “Son of Man” to describe Jesus, which was to affirm Jesus’ deity (Matt. 1:23, 2:15, 3:17, & 16:16). The Book of Matthew is considered the beginning of the “bridge” that connects the Old Testament to the New Testament. Just as in Biblical times, Christians of today are called to produce disciples throughout all the world. (Matt. 28:19)</span></p>
