Nothing is more important in our Christian experience than understanding who Jesus is. His life, His character, His ministry, His work on the Cross, and His death and resurrection are the most foundational realities of our faith. Gracefully, God gave us not one, but four biographies of the most important Person who ever lived. The first story, the Gospel according to Matthew, gives us the assurance that Jesus is indeed the fulfillment of Old Testament prophecy. Matthew reveals Jesus as the Messiah, the One who had been promised to be the forgiveness for our sins. And Matthew gives us marvelous insight into the incredible way Jesus lived and loved.
