The Book of Matthew: The Kingdom of Heaven

8 Weeks

This eight-week Gospel of Matthew sermon series examines the broader themes of God’s character, Jesus as the fulfillment of the Old Testament promises for a Messiah, and the importance of internal integrity over external behavior.

The religious leaders of Jesus’ day misinterpreted the Old Testament prophecies and therefore didn’t understand that Jesus came to deliver them from their own sin. Using the Gospel of Matthew as an essential link between the Old and New Testaments, we know that we can never achieve right relationship with God apart from Jesus dwelling inside us through the Holy Spirit.

This sermon series on the Gospel of Matthew includes eight specific messages on the need for salvation, baptism and repentance, and provides the groundwork for a clear explanation of the Gospel.
