The Book of Matthew

The book of Matthew begins the Gospels of Jesus Christ. We love to study the Gospels around the holidays, as a family. No matter what time of the year it is, the Gospels are never outdated.

“She will bear a Son; and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.”

(Matthew 1:21)


Written for Jews, by a Jew, the book of Matthew’s design is to present Jesus Christ as the King of The Jews, the long-awaited Messiah. His genealogy, baptism, messages, and miracles, all point to Jesus Christ as King. Even in His death, defeat is turned to victory by the Resurrection of Christ, echoing the message again that the King of the Jews LIVES. (Referenced from the NKJV Bible)

If you have teenagers, you can try to read the Gospels in 40 days with your family, by combining chapters and outlining your plan on a calendar. If you would like to see what this looks like, click here.

If you need to, start with one chapter a day, especially if you have younger kids. Be sure to use the accompany assignments to keep Children listening and engaged, while the reading is done. A good idea is to document reading.

After each lesson, we have included optional family discussion topics which are popular among our curriculum. If you are a part of the Focus on The Family: Family Bible Study membership, you can always find the “The Plan” outline here.
