Seek First the Kingdom – the Gospel of Matthew

Seek First the Kingdom

Introduction to the Study

This Bible study is planned for the period of Ash Wednesday through Easter Week, though it could be used any time as an eight-week series. The study is appropriate for a congregation, for a small group study, or for an individual.

One of the main purposes of the Gospel of Matthew is to serve as a guide for Christians in living fearlessly into the ways of Jesus Christ. The Kingdom of Heaven (Matthew’s characteristic way of speaking of the Kingdom of God) is the vision that anchors this teaching.
