Opening

What’s one critical component of your backstory that influences who you are today?

Diving Deeper
  1. Why do you think Matthew chose to lead his book with Jesus’ genealogy?
  2. How does an understanding of history and genealogy help establish the significance of Jesus’ arrival?
  3. How do you relate to Matthew’s position in life prior to being called by Jesus?
  4. 400 years passed between the end of the Malachi (the last book in the Old Testament) until the beginning of Matthew. After such a long layoff, why do you think God chose Matthew to pick up the story once again?
  5. For people who aren’t of Jewish descent, what is the point of Matthew telling the story of Jesus as a climax to the history of Israel?
  6. In what ways is Jesus different from any other king?
  7. Why do you think God chose four people (instead of just one) to tell the events of Jesus’ life?
