Matthew: Week 1

Aug 7, 2011    Greg McCormick


1. Think of a time when you had to say the same thing to someone in different ways over and over again. Describe that situation and explain why you felt the need to keep repeating yourself. Has anyone ever had to speak to you in that way and if so, why couldn't you "get it" the first time?

2. Look at 11 verses in the Gospel of Matthew (1:22; 2:5, 15, 17, 23; 4:14; 8:17; 12:17; 13:35; 21:4; and 27:9). What is Matthew saying over and over again in various ways? Why do you think he continues to repeat it?

3. What practical difference does it make whether or not the life of Jesus fulfilled Old Testament prophecy? How does it impact your faith?
