Wednesday Giveaway - NIV Application Commentary on Matthew

Categories New Testament

NIVAC MatthewThe Gospel of Matthew was the most widely read and frequently used of
any of the four Gospels in the formative early years of the church,
and it has historically been pivotal to Christian
doctrine and worship.

In today's giveaway, the NIV
Application Commentary on Matthew
, Michael Wilkins examines the historical
context of Matthew’s Gospel, its message, and how this message continues to be
relevant in our contemporary context. 

In Wilkins’ commentary we see how Matthew both affirmed the
Messiahship of Jesus for Jewish readers, and provided powerful and dramatic
support of Gentile disciples inclusion in God’s kingdom. The cross of Christ
had removed the division between Jew and non-Jew, and through Matthew’s Gospel,
we see Israel’s God drawing the entire world to himself through Jesus.

To enter the giveaway, comment below with your
answer to this question: Why might Matthew have chosen to begin his Gospel with a genealogy?
