Response to Matthew The book of Matthew is written to the Jews We see this because of the many quotes from the Old Testament The Jews knew the Old Testament better than anyone of that time and they should have been looking for the messiah that was promised The main point that Matthew was trying to make by his book it that Jesus was the messiah promised to us in the Old Testament That is why he used so many quotes because he wanted to show the Jews that Jesus was the promised messiah One main point that stuck out to me in this gospel is that Jesus was from the line of Abraham and David Right away in chapter one we see the genealogy of Jesus This is an interesting topic in the fact that some of the people that we hear about are people that we would not expect to be in the line of the messiah For example Rahab is one of the people in the line of Jesus She is not only one of few women in the line she is also a prostitute Rahab is the one who protected the spies when they went to check out Jericho She hid them when the guards came to check her house Because she helped them they told her that she would be protected when they destroyed the city We see that the Lord works in mysterious ways He uses all different types of people and even in sin his promises live on Sin was a part of the line of Jesus We see that David was in the line of Jesus as well David was the one who had Uriah killed in the army so that he could take Bathsheba as his own wife In his sin of adultery the line of the savior was preserved The son of David and Bathsheba was Solomon Solomon was the son of David
