The Story of Jesus According to Matthew
Don R Camp
Messiah is a handbook to the Gospel of Matthew. Written from the perspective of Matthew’s purpose to present Jesus as the Messiah to a Jewish audience, Messiah opens up new insights both for a reader familiar with the Gospel and for students who are just becoming acquainted. The author incorporates the latest scholarly work related to the Gospel and presents those ideas in informal language that the average student or reader can easily understand. At the same time Messiah reaffirms the historical position of Christians that the Apostle Matthew was the author – and may well have been the source of Q, the proposed source of the sayings of Jesus - and provides biblical answers to puzzles, such as the use of the word "church" in chapter 18 and the prophetic significance of the star in chapter 2.
The volume includes a new readable translation/paraphrase by the author highlighting the many Old Testament references included by Matthew and is illustrated in the Kindle version with full color classic scenes from the gospel by master artists of the past.
The author, Don R. Camp, presents the Messiah and the Gospel of Matthew to his readers in a fresh and lively way, and Messiah: The story of Jesus According to Matthew is guaranteed to spur the reader on in faith and in the quest to know the gospel and the Lord more intimately.
