Meditative Commentary Series: Matthew: Jesus is King
Publisher/Vendor:Leafwood Publishers / ACU Press
Do you want a deeper, more fulfilling way of Bible study? Do you want to know God through Scripture — not just to know the teachings, but to have a relationship with the Teacher? Perhaps you want to begin daily Bible reading, but need guidance. Or you need a guide for family Bible study. Or your small group Bible study needs revitalizing.
This meditative commentary is for you. There are many commentaries on the books of the Bible and workbooks for Bible study, but this series is different. It employs the classic Christian method of holy reading” to help you hear the voice of God.
Holy reading involves slowly engaging a short passage of Scripture, listening closely, reading repeatedly, praying the words, and perhaps sharing with fellow believers. God will bless us, our families, and our churches if we take the time to be still, listen, and do his word.
This volume points us to God’s voice in the gospel of Matthew. This gospel invites us to make Jesus our king in a daily discipleship. If we take Matthew seriously, we might (like his original hearers) be shocked by the words of Jesus, astonished by his power, and overwhelmed at his compassion.”
