Matthew betrayed his own people for money—then was called and transformed by Jesus. This Jewish tax collector, who worked for the oppressor Romans, gives a detailed account of the life of Jesus through the lens of Jewish history and prophecy. More than any other Gospel writer, Matthew documents the actual words of Jesus and connects everything Jesus said and did to the promises about the Messiah. Through this interactive guide through the book of Matthew, you will gain a new appreciation for both Matthew’s literary genius and how he invites you into the unfolding story of God and humanity.
Galatians & Ephesians
Galatians is unique among Paul’s letters in that he did not write it to a single church (like the church at Rome or the church at Philippi) or to an individual (as with 1 and 2 Timothy) but to a collection of churches within the region of Galatia, a rugged area in
what is today southwestern Turkey.
The Galatians were a Gentile people who had come to faith in Christ from the pagan religions that dotted the landscape of Asia Minor. As Gentiles, they were steeped neither in the way of Moses nor in the customs of the synagogue. Their naivete toward
all things Hebrew became one of the great ironies of Paul’s letter and the occasion of its writing. The Galatian drama involved several false teachers who had slipped into the churches’ congregations and sown both confusion and discord as the Gentiles were persuaded to accept Jewish legal requirements. In some of Paul’s most majestic language he calls on the Galatians to accept the true gospel of grace.
Ephesians is written to the church in Ephesus - a singular congregation in a cosmopolitan city. The city of Ephesus was located on the western coast of Turkey on the Aegean Sea. You can visit the remaining ruins of the city on any excursion to that region of the world. Like Galatia, the people in the Ephesian church were primarily gentile. Their drama differed slightly from their neighbors’ in that it involved merging Jews and Gentiles together within the same congregation. How could God make something new and different out of two people so separate and distinct? Filled with more of Paul’s lofty prose, Ephesians emphasizes the reconciliation
between Jews and Gentiles in Christ, and gives instructions for Christian living.
This volume deals with the unexpected gems found in the well-known book of Proverbs.
Philippians & Colossians
Set against the backdrop of the Roman world, Come Alive: Philippians and Colossians invites you into the real-life drama of the early church, clarifies your thinking about who you are and who Jesus is and reminds you of the supreme joy of knowing Him: the Son of God and the only authority in heaven and on earth.
