In her new book, "The Gospel of Matthew” (published by CrossBooks), author Carol Walker presents an in-depth exploration of the first book of the New Testament, offering a collection of lessons based on the biblical text.
Walker offers a comprehensive and straightforward study of all 28 chapters of the Gospel of Matthew. She organizes the information into 34 lessons, providing historical and cultural background information as well as questions and answers to generate discussion. Walker delves deeply into Jesus’ life and teachings in the book, broadening readers’ understanding of the Scripture and strengthening their faith.
An excerpt from “The Gospel of Matthew”:
“Much of Scripture is surrounded by mystery. Some facts are knowable and others must be conjecture. For Christians what is important is that Jesus came to save us and all of mankind from our sins. We can only read and marvel and wonder not to mention give thanks to God when we read what Matthew said about the birth of our Savior.”
Walker hopes her book helps readers understand the Bible better, especially those readers who read Scripture in study groups. “Knowing the story of the life of Jesus, his ministry, his death and resurrection can change people’s lives,” Walker says. “People who already have Christian faith can deepen their faith by increasing their understanding of Scripture. This is a life-long process and has no end.”
