Why are there four Gospels? Wouldn't it have been better to have one complete biography of Jesus?
Interesting questions! Perhaps the answer could be summed up by saying that each of the four Gospel writers wrote to bring out a different theme. Matthew, a Jew, shows us Jesus as King, the One who fulfilled the Jewish prophecies in the Old Testament. Giving our lives to Jesus involves more than just words. We need to submit to his authority, something modern men and women find hard to do - Matthew has much to teach us, and this study helps us bring this into sharp - and often uncomfortable focus. Geared for Growth study materials encourage:
A Daily Encounter with God: Your 10-15 minutes each day will strengthen the impact of God's word on your daily living
Group learning and sharing: Meet weekly in a small group, share your answers and be enriched as you learn from others.
Spiritual Growth: You will be challenged to put God's Word into practice. Others will feel the impact as you obey, grow and mature.
Church Growth: Introduce people to Spiritual reality. Your study group could be the stepping-stone for others coming to faith.
