NBS materials are inter-denominational and are being used around the world to develop a program of outreach inductive Bible studies. 12 chapters of discussion questions, leader notes, and prayer on the book of Matthew. God described his promised leader as a King, the Messiah, and yet a suffering servant. Matthew,a despised tax collector for the Romans, became one of Jesus' disciples. Other people rejected Jesus because he didn't fit their preconceptions of how God would act. Matthew offers Jesus' genealogy, birth, Old Testament prophecies, Jesus' teachings including the Sermon on the Mount, His compassion, His power, and clashes with the religious leaders as evidence that Jesus fulfilled God's promises. You can compare God's surprises with your expectations.
