The New Testament begins with an eyewitness account of the events of Jesus’ life by Matthew, a despised former tax collector who experienced a radical conversion and became one of Jesus’ own disciples. Matthew’s unique perspective blends his solid Jewish knowledge of the expected Messiah with his personal memories of the Savior in the flesh. In the process, he reveals the qualifications that prove Jesus was the promised Messiah: his miraculous birth, his response to the test of his kingship, his inauguration, his miracles, his teachings, and his public ministry. Matthew confirms the divinity of Jesus and proves that he is the Messiah of Israel and the Savior of the world. Our study uses MacArthur’s book of Bible studies, Matthew; The Coming of the King, The book provides an examination of the 28 chapters of Matthew, with detailed commentary, observations and truths for today.
Come join us as we study The Coming of the King. The study is for a small group of women. No matter who you are or where you’ve been, this study is for you. You do not need any religious background or prior studies to participate in this trip. Modern believers in Jesus Christ can learn much from Matthew as they journey toward greater intimacy with God.
The study meets once a week for a two-hour group session that guides us to discuss and apply what they have learned during the week’s study. We look forward to seeing you at the start of this study on Wednesday, March 16 at First Baptist Church, 291 118th Street, Orofino. If you can’t attend all the sessions, come when you can and join the community. The study will begin at 10 a.m. and end at 12 p.m. For more information contact the church at 476-5412 or Adeline Holmgren 619 889-9461.
