A1 Commentary on the Gospel of Matthew and The Letter (Epistle)of James

This website contains a commentary along with introductory articles, on the Gospel of Matthew, one on the Letter (Epistle) of James, one on 1 & 2 Timothy and one on Titus. The Gospel of Matthew contains an account of the life of Jesus Christ, Who is truly God, and truly man, Who came into the world in order to establish God’s Kingly Rule (the Kingdom of God / Heaven) over men’s lives. Beginning from His birth, and even before His birth, it goes on to declare to us Who He was, what He taught, the many wonderful things that He did, and above all the story of how He died for us on a cross, and then rose again from the dead in order to be crowned as King in Heaven, from where He now empowers His followers in order that they may take the Good News about Him and what He has done, to all who will hear, in preparation for His second coming in glory as King, Saviour and Judge.

The Epistle to James is a circular letter which applies and expands on Jesus' teaching as found in Matthew written to the churches around the world.

1 & 2 Timothy and Titus were Paul's three final letters before his martyrdom.
