Imagine how incomplete our understanding of Christ and the mission of his church would be without the Matthew's Gospel. Without Matthew, we would miss his Greatest of teachings in the "Sermon on the Mount." Only in Matthew does Jesus spell out guidelines for reconciliation among members of the church and it is here that He tells us that "whatever we do to the least of these" we do also to him. Matthew's Gospel seeks to form a community of faith in which people faithfully confess Jesus as "the Messiah and Son of God" and follow him in faithful discipleship. This guide includes teaching options, suggested worship and sermon outlines, along with relevant lesson plans for youth and younger children.
