Matthew: The King and His Kingdom

by Jeff Cavins and Sarah Christmyer

Matthew: The King and His Kingdom is an exciting study that explores the life and mission of Jesus as recorded in the Gospel. Matthew demonstrates how the promises and prophecies of the Old Testament are fulfilled in Christ, who establishes a New Law and inaugurates the Kingdom of Heaven on earth. Participants will see Jesus as the awaited Messiah who relives the life and struggles of Israel to become the faithful and victorious King. Set in the rich context of Jesus' Jewish culture, this study will help participants understand who Jesus is and what his life and teachings mean for us today.

Your Group Will:
  • See Jesus as the Son of David, the Son of Abraham, the New Moses, the True Manna, the New Temple—and learn what this means for us today.
  • Learn how Jesus reconstituted the struggling kingdom of Israel around Himself and opened the Kingdom of God to all people.
  • Witness how Christ established his Church with the Twelve Apostles, and Peter as his vicar.
  • Discover the roots of the sacraments, and see how Jesus' words and actions are reflected in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
  • Watch Jesus re-live the history of Israel as the obedient Son who trusts the Father, defeats hell and the grave, and rises to new life.

Applying the Faith to Your Life – How the Series Works

Home Preparation
Reading assignments and study questions are completed before participants come together. This way students have already worked through Scripture on their own.
Small Group Discussion
Participants have the opportunity to answer questions and share insights in a small group format.
DVD Presentation
A dynamic and engaging (50 minute) DVD lesson is presented by Jeff Cavins.
A final review is provided in detailed responses to the questions, which are also part of the study set. These are always given out at the end of the session.
