As with the other gospel accounts, Matthew’s is most importantly a biography of the life and ministry of Jesus that helps the reader to understand the identity and work of Christ.
The Gospel according to Matthew is the first of the synoptic Gospels and of these it is the only one written by an apostle, a direct eyewitness to the ministry of Jesus. From the outset Matthew presents Jesus as the Messiah who comes in the line of David and as a covenant child of Abraham. Jesus brings the Kingdom of God to earth for the salvation of Jews and Gentiles alike in fulfillment of God’s covenant to Abraham.
