God's Grand Story: Fulfillment in Matthew

Matthew's Gospel is not just the first book of the New Testament; it is the bridge that joins the Old and New Testaments in the person and work of Jesus. Writing mainly to a Jewish audience, Matthew's goal is to show how Jesus fulfills the Old Testament hopes of Israel as the long-awaited Messiah who brings in the kingdom of heaven. In doing so, he challenges Jewish expectations of the Messiah and gives a bigger picture of what God is doing in His kingdom for the nations.
