Matthew  


Matthew intends to prove to the Jews that Jesus Christ is the promised Messiah.

More than any other Gospel, the Gospel of Matthew quotes the Old Testament to show how Jesus fulfilled the words of the Jewish prophets. Matthew describes in detail the lineage of Jesus from David, and uses many forms of speech that Jews would have been comfortable with. Matthew’s love and concern for his people is apparent through his meticulous approach to telling the gospel story.

The True Authorship of the New Testament, by Abelard Reuchlin 1986
[source]
Year Written: (Assumed)75-100 AD
Manuscript: (Earliest Available)150-250 AD - Large fragment - Papyrus (1,19,21,25,37,45,53,64,67,70,77,101,103,104)
Scripture Type:New Testament
The New Testament is the second major part of the Christian biblical canon, the first part being the Old Testament, based on the Hebrew Bible. The New Testament discusses the teachings and person of Jesus, as well as events in first-century Christianity. Christians regard both the Old and New Testaments together as sacred scripture.

The New Testament consists of 27 books which serve as a source for Christian theology and morality. It is an anthology, a collection of Christian works written in the Greek language within the first 100-years of Jesus, at different times by various writers, who were early Jewish followers of Jesus.

1 Abraham begat Isaac; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat Judas and his brethren;
2 And Judas begat Phares and Zara of Thamar; and Phares begat Esrom; and Esrom begat Aram;
3 And Aram begat Aminadab; and Aminadab begat Naasson; and Naasson begat Salmon;
4 And Salmon begat Booz of Rachab; and Booz begat Obed of Ruth; and Obed begat Jesse;
5 And Jesse begat David the king; and David the king begat Solomon of her that had been the wife of Urias;
6 And Solomon begat Roboam; and Roboam begat Abia; and Abia begat Asa;
7 And Asa begat Josaphat; and Josaphat begat Joram; and Joram begat Ozias;
8 And Ozias begat Joatham; and Joatham begat Achaz; and Achaz begat Ezekias;
9 And Ezekias begat Manasses; and Manasses begat Amon; and Amon begat Josias;
10 And Josias begat Jechonias and his brethren, about the time they were carried away to Babylon:
11 And after they were brought to Babylon, Jechonias begat Salathiel; and Salathiel begat Zorobabel;
12 And Zorobabel begat Abiud; and Abiud begat Eliakim; and Eliakim begat Azor;
13 And Azor begat Sadoc; and Sadoc begat Achim; and Achim begat Eliud;
14 And Eliud begat Eleazar; and Eleazar begat Matthan; and Matthan begat Jacob;
15 And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ.
16 So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; and from David until the carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ are fourteen generations.
17 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.
18 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily.
19 But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.
20 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.
21 Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,
22 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.
23 Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife:
24 And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS.
