The Gospel of Matthew
by Troy M. Troftgruben

Throughout history Matthew’s gospel has played a prominent role in Christian worship and practice, and to this day it retains a central place in most people’s experiences of the New Testament and the Christian faith. Matthew’s gospel speaks well to church communities today, identifying the church as founded by Jesus (16:18) and issuing practical instructions for practicing community (18:1-35). Matthew envisions the church as made up of sinners and doubters who struggle with faith, temptation, and forgiveness, but ultimately reflect the ministry and presence of Jesus.

          1. The Birth of the Messiah (Matthew 1:18—2:12)
          2. This Is My Son, the Beloved (Matthew 3:13—4:11)
          3. You Are the Salt of the Earth (Matthew 5:1-16 [17-20], 21-48)
          4. You of Little Faith (Matthew 14:13-36)
          5. Who Do You Say That I Am? (Matthew 16:13—17:9 [13])
          6. Where Two or Three Are Gathered in My Name (Matthew 18:1-22 [23-35])
          7. My God, My God, Why Have You Forsaken Me? (Matthew 27:32-56)
          8. I Am with You Always (Matthew 28:1-10 [11-15], 16-20)

Christianity without discipleship is always Christianity without Christ.

Just as love of God begins with listening to his word, so the beginning of love for our brothers and sisters is learning to listen to them.
―  (Dietrich Bonhoeffer: Life Together)

We Are Becoming

This life is not devoutness, but becoming devout;

not health, but becoming healthy;
not being, but becoming, and
not resting, but doing.

We are not yet what we should be, but we are becoming what we should be.

Martin Luther, Meditation on Philippians 3:13
