Signs of the Kingdom: Studies in Matthew, Leader Guide
Matthew's account of the good news shows a Jesus who weaves profound new teachings from the threads of ordinary life experience. Matthew also weaves in bright strands of ancient prophecies fulfilled, his way of showing the unbroken line of God's faithfulness in action, from creation to resurrection and beyond.
Through the readings in this unit, we glimpse Jesus' formidable intelligence and political skill as he nimbly engages his adversaries. We see Jesus as a forward-thinking leader who takes care to equip people for the mission that one day will be theirs: making disciples throughout the world.
This 7-session study looks at the texts in Matthew from historical, literary, Lutheran theological, and devotional perspectives.
