The Gospel of Matthew

April 10, 2008

I just completed my devotional reading of 1 John, so it’s time for a gospel infusion!I’ve also been teaching a little out of 1 Corinthians, so I’ve been “epistle-heavy” for the last few months.

I studied Mark and John in the fall, so I think it’s time to get back into Matthew.

After I work my way through Matthew, I’d like to go back to one of the prophets. It’s very easy to neglect both the major and minor prophets in devotional study. I want to train my mind to see the gospel in the Old Testament.

But first…Matthew 1:1-17

Starting Point

Every road must have a starting point. I’m reminded of what the great philosopher Bilbo Baggins has to say about a journey:

“It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step into the Road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there is no knowing where you may be swept off to.”

Here’s to the journey!
