                The Gospel of Matthew is one of four gospels in the Holy Bible. Matthew was one of the 12 apostles that were with Jesus Christ throughout His ministry on earth. Matthew was a Jewish tax collector that left his profession to follow the Lord, we are given a personal witness account of many miracles that Jesus performed prior to His suffering in the Garden of Gethsemane and being crucified on the cross.

 The Gospel of Matthew is divided into eight sections that describe different parts of Jesus’ life. It begins with the Genealogy of Jesus and follows with Gospel records of the beginning of Jesus’ ministry. It also describes in detail the baptism of Jesus and His temptation by Satan in the desert. After 40 days and nights of fasting Jesus resisted all temptation. We learn of His ministry while in Galilee, where He commissioned the 12 Apostles, preaches The Beatitudes, performs miracles and teaches many lessons on subjects like; adultery, divorce, giving, prayer, judging, treasures in Heaven and warnings for not following the Gospel or the Commandments.

Jesus also teaches many parables to provide examples to His lessons. Jesus performs the miracle of feeding five thousand people with five loaves of bread and two fish (Matthew 14:17). He also walks on water (Matthew 14:25). In Chapter 17 we learn of the transfiguration that was witnessed by three of His disciples; John, Peter and James (Matthew 17:1). Finally, towards the end of Matthew, we learn that Jesus returned to Galilee, where He predicts of His death. We learn of His entry back into Jerusalem where He is tried and crucified on the cross as a sacrifice for all the sin in the world. Jesus is resurrected and on the third day rises and tells His Apostles to preach unto the world!
