Description : Chinedu Oranye's Reflections on the Gospel of Matthew is a treasure-trove of devotional meditation that deserves wide dissemination. Moving through the entire gospel almost verse-by-verse, we are invited into 415 separate meditations, each of which deserves to stand alone as a basis for daily reflection and deeper prayer. Like all good devotional literature, we are invited to pause and deeply reflect. We find ourselves loathe to turn the page until we have personally dealt with the issues that are raised. We sense that we must offer the prayers that ensure that we have not listened in vain. Each meditation begins with a direct quotation from Matthew's gospel, and is then followed by commentary usually not more than 150 words in length. Through the commentary, we continually sense the depth of devotion of the author, yet combined with a humble simplicity that lets us know he is a fellow pilgrim, just as we ourselves. He uses simple, uncomplicated sentences, and refuses to indulge in distracting speculations (e.g., "Not all of destiny can be understood," he notes). On virtually every page, we are given profound truths couched with an economy of words. No doubt a long list of frameable aphorisms can and perhaps should be drawn out for deeper meditation: *"Following Jesus does not stop the storms." *"Experiencing peace does not mean being idle in the midst of the madness around us." *"It is not cowardice to know when to flee." *"Do not end your day's journey with all the hustle and bustle of the day." *"I cannot live unless I learn to die." *"Satan wants to keep us bound in the poison of everlasting guilt, leading eventually to our destruction." *"Jesus is not satisfied with worship that is not accompanied by the surrendered life." The examples are virtually endless. Very few pages do not contain repeatable morsels that can with great profit be carried through the day, along with relevant scriptures and prayers. No doubt, those who have known Chinedu Oranye personally will be the most inclined to quickly grab this fresh publication for their personal profit. That says much about the character of the author, who is known for his passion for Christ, his love for the lost, and especially his heart for world-wide missions. Yet without hesitation, I commend this devotional book to anyone who wants to draw closer to God and to be challenged to Christ-like living. Rev. Dr. Gary MaxeyFounder, West Africa Theological Seminary (WATS)Senior Pastor, New Beginnings International Church

Description : Historians are still unclear about who authored the book of Matthew. Was it truly the apostle Matthew, a tax collector who was called to follow Jesus, or was it an anonymous Jewish scholar? Whatever the case, the words in Matthew's Gospel have been divinely inspired and have valuable insights to offer. Deacon Francis J. Foyt recognizes the importance of breaking open the Bible to better understand the simple truths inside, which is why he wrote Ordinary Matthew. This book is rich with history and grounded in life experience, pulling out practical wisdom from scripture stories you may have heard dozens of times. Each meditation takes little time to read but prompts deeper thought and reflection. God's word is as relevant now as it was when it was first written. Christians of today should celebrate the wisdom guidance and comfort found in the Bible and apply it to their own lives. Foyt's reflections will enable you to do just that!

Description : Baptize All Nations is a collection of pastoral reflections on the Sunday Gospel readings from the Gospel of Matthew that appear during the Pentecost Season. Pentecost is the culmination of the Paschal season that includes both the feast of Pascha (Easter) and Ascension. During the Pentecost season, we turn to the Gospel of Matthew and hear the many parables, teachings and miracles from Jesus who is presented to us by Matthew as the great Teacher who instructs His disciples in the basic tenants of the Gospel. If we diligently follow His words, we will maintain our path on the narrow way to the Kingdom of Heaven. During Pentecost, we commemorate the outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon the Church and recall the importance of Jesus' final words to His disciples that they must continue His preaching and teaching ministry until He comes again. Thus, at Pentecost, we are encouraged to reaffirm once again our baptismal calling to live according to the Word of God and proclaim it the best we can in both our words and our deeds, as we are witnesses to the death and resurrection of Jesus. Baptize All Nations is an excellent resource for preaching and teaching as well as for personal or group Bible study.

Description : Walter Wilson adopts an interdisciplinary approach to the healing narratives in the Gospel of Matthew, combining the familiar methods of form, redaction, and narrative criticisms with insights culled from medical anthropology, feminist theory, disability studies, and ancient archaeology to understand the New Testament's longest and most systematic account of healing, Matthew chapters 8 and 9. Close exegetical readings culminate in a final synthesis of Matthew's understanding of healing, how Matthew's narratives of healing expose the distinctive priorities of the evangelist, and how these priorities relate to the theology of the Gospel.

Description : Who was Matthew? Why did many Jews not recognize Jesus as the Messiah? What does the Gospel of Matthew say to us today? How does lectio divina move us to pray with Scripture? The evangelist Matthew writes to a Jewish-Christian audience and teaches us that Christ fulfills the promises of the Old Testament. The inheritance of the Messiah belonged to the Israelite people; however, many Jews didn't recognize Jesus, which is why Gentiles made up a large portion of the early Christian converts. Matthew's Gospel quotes the Old Testament as it speaks of the reign of God, the promise of eternal life, and Jesus' teaching of the twofold commandment to love God and neighbor. In "The Gospel of Matthew, " Father Bill Anderson's conversational instruction style brings Scripture to life, moving us to use God's Word in prayer through the spiritual discipline of lectio divina.

Description : Poems and short stories centered around Jesus' Sermon on the Mount. I need to share with you the beginning and the inspiration. On a Friday afternoon in April, 2017, I sat in my living room chair reading Matthew's beatitudes. The thought entered my mind. 'What does it really mean to be poor in spirit?' With modern technology at hand, I typed the question into Google and received an answer from Billy Graham at billygraham.org The experience, though quite simple, touched me deeply. A comment from a previous reader brought a tear to my eye. And I promised our God I would write these words with His blessing. Lord, You spoke from the top of the mount, to Your chosen and the multitudes. I pray that I am included among those who are so blessed. Amen
