matthew: the greats

1.    Watch these two short videos, Matthew 1and Matthew 2, from Read Scripture, which outline what Matthew is all about.

2.    Read the book of Matthew (or listen to it on an audio Bible – it will take about two and a half hours). Dip into a couple of different translations – maybe NIV and the Message – and see if you can spot any differences.

Consider more deeply the Great Commandment (Matthew 22:34-40) and the Great Commission (Matthew 28:16-20). Find some commentaries – Bible Gateway (Great Command) and Bible Gateway (Great Commission)  are a good place to start.

Write 200-500 words (plain text, below) on how these commandments of Jesus influence your life and your thinking about God and the world around you. Due Friday, August 30.
