    After not picking up the Bible in many months, I'm pleased to say I've finally started the New Testament. Already, I'm enjoying the New Testament much more than the Old Testament. So far, it reflects my view on life and how we should behave towards others more closely. I really enjoyed reading the Gospel of Matthew.

Already, I'm enjoying the New Testament much more than the Old Testament. So far, it reflects my view on life and how we should behave towards others more closely. I really enjoyed reading the Gospel of Matthew. This covers all sorts about Jesus' life - his birth, being tempted by Satan, feeding the starving, healing the sick, being killed, coming back from the dead. It also discusses things like turning the other cheek, loving your enemies, and not judging others. Favourite quotes and food for thought: DO NOT WORRY: 6:25-27 - Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? ASK, SEEK, KNOCK: 7:7-8 - Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened. 19:21-24 - If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me. When the young man heard this, he went away sad, because he had great wealth. Then Jesus said to his disciples, "I tell you the truth, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God." MY BIBLE CHALLENGE: In January 2015 I set myself the challenge to read the complete Bible within a year. I discovered that was an unrealistic challenge, and decided to pick up my Bible as and when I felt ready to read more of it. Here is a link to all the reviews in my Bible challenge so far: https://www.goodreads.com/review/list...

    Matthew is the most structured of the four gospels and was written with a Jewish audience in mind. The book focuses on how Christ fulfilled the prophecies of the Old Testament and is truly the promised Messiah. Matthew begins with a record of Jesus' genealogy as a marker of his identity and ends with Jesus' transfer of authority to his disciples. It is impossible to read the Gospels and not be filled with the depth and breadth of God's love for mankind.

    Jesus is a lot stricter than I thought, I didn't know he told so many people to go to hell. I don't know what to make if his high standard of ethics as well as devotion. Very insightful and historically valuable read though, much more lively than some of the other books. Jesus is a lot stricter than I thought, I didn't know he told so many people to go to hell.

    "But seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." -- Matthew 6:33 KJV (King James Version) That's the version I memorized as a kid at church. (I still remember my teacher singing the verse to us, and today that still seems to be how I memorize verses best.) I've found that in general, I really like the New Living Translation for more plainspeaking. See the NLT translation of the same verse below. "Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and "But seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." -- Matthew 6:33 KJV (King James Version) That's the version I memorized as a kid at church.

"Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need." -- Matthew 6:33 NLT ------------------------------------ Rating: 5 stars Matthew is the first book in the New Testament. This is an easy book of the Bible to read, but it took me a long time because I'd been watching it signed in ASL (American Sign Language) very sporadically via an app called Deaf Bible. I enjoy this app quite a bit. The only thing is, no matter which media I'm using to read, barring Audible, it requires that I stop moving. Which is very difficult for me to bring myself to do during my peak productive hours while the kids are in school. But now I've hit upon something that works really well for me. This (school) year, I've decided to sit at my dining room table and read from the Deaf Bible app while eating lunch! So now I'm able to read the Bible - for ten to twenty minutes a day - while I'm eating my lunch, and it's working beautifully because I have a personal commitment to sit for those 10-20 minutes. As a result, I'm not distracted by the nagging feeling that I should go move the laundry along, move the Roomba or Braava to the next room, or start the dishwasher, or… That's the key, isn't it? Finding that sweet spot for daily Bible reading. It's changed for me over the years, each with varying degrees of success. Realistically speaking, I know I can't blame the time of day for not being consistently faithful to read. But I thrive on routine, and am just tickled pink to find something that works so EASILY for this season in my life. "Oh, the joys of those who do not follow the advice of the wicked, or stand around with sinners, or join in with mockers. But they delight in the law of the Lord, meditating on it day and night." -- Psalm 1:1-2, NLT Christian elements: Well, it is the Bible… So really, the whole thing has "Christian elements." Is it clean/chaste? Yup. Possible content issues: The crucifixion is covered in Matthew. (As well as in Mark, Luke, and John) It's dealt with on a PG level. The horror of it is not amplified in such a way that sensitive readers will be unable to stomach it. What I liked: I love reading the account of Jesus' life because it's so interesting. *********** The bottom line: Matthew outlines Jesus' life from beginning to end. I recommend this book to anyone, even someone who knows Matthew inside and out. The Bible is pretty neat like that. New depths can always be found if one looks for them. Or perhaps it will be just that we need to be reminded of something that we have forgotten. God knows what we need. I've started reading Acts at a much faster rate than Matthew. I'm not even going to LOOK to see how long it took me to get through Matthew!!!

    The first of the gospels, Matthew tells a powerful story. Very interesting. It's kind of fun to see the small differences between Matthew and Luke, which I recently read too. Same story, but each individual notices different details, I guess. :) The first of the gospels, Matthew tells a powerful story. Very interesting.

Nothing in-depth. So here is my review of Matthew. The Gospels are going to be an interesting read. The first three, Matthew, Mark and Luke, are a lot a like with how the story of Jesus goes. John, on the other hand, is the same but from a different eye of detail. Matthew was a great introduction into the New Testament. I can tell you that the story of Jesus is beautiful and magical.

    and to think that I had never read the Bible after becoming an adult... Matthew is a great little book about this super socialist guy named Jesus and the amount of trouble he got himself into for telling the Jewish priests and scribes of his day that they had their priorities all wrong and were leading people to the wrong path. Along the narrative Jesus casts some rad healing spells and has frequent conversations with no one less than God himself, not to mention a showdown with - you guessed it - and to think that I had never read the Bible after becoming an adult...

I gotta say that I felt goosebumps while reading parts of it, such as in the many occasions when he felt compassionate towards the suffering of the disenfranchised or when he professed some beautiful truths about how to lead a good life. Can't wait to read the same story told by a different guy now.

    Jesus' mother and brothers are waiting outside to speak to him. "who are my mother and brothers? Everyone who follows me is my mother, brother or sister" I don't think it would go down to well if I tried this. Also he went in the huff and destroyed a fig tree because it hadn't any figs yet.

    I'm not sure the Bible requires stars or reviews, but my OCD won't let me move on without giving a rating. Although I've read the gospel of Matthew before, I'm always surprised by the things I have forgotten. For example, the dead saints who rise from the grave and go into the cities when Jesus dies. You'd think that would be difficult to forget! I'm not sure the Bible requires stars or reviews, but my OCD won't let me move on without giving a rating.

    Not going to rate it because well...it's the Bible. But naturally, I have some things to say about it.

I'm trying to read the Bible in its entirety this year (I'm using the New Revised Standard Version, not the King James Version, but I couldn't find it here) and using a reading plan to do so, and Matthew was the first New Testament book the plan directed me to read. One thing I noticed was the tone–while Jesus is a kind teacher he is a demanding one, and rather grim and stern in his didactic efforts, more so than I was expecting having heard the stories of Matthew in many different styles from the rest of the Synoptic Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John) via homilies in church over the years. It will be interesting to compare and contrast this version of Jesus with the other versions in the Synoptic Gospels. Another thing I felt I fully understood for the first time was Peter's denial of Christ just prior to the crucifixion, or at least my interpretation of it. Peter is the first to leap to defend Jesus when the authorities come to the Garden of Gethsemane, and yet it is he who we witness denying knowing him, three times. But some context is important here–throughout Matthew, we see how it is usually Peter who speaks up and asks what is probably on the mind of the rest of the disciples. He grounds the divinity and unreality of the mysteries of Christ in our world by questioning how a normal human being is meant to interface with it. And even though Peter is deeply devoted, Jesus tells him he must allow the authorities to take him away in order to fulfull what was spoken by the prophets. Left without his beloved leader, I can see why he would be afraid and would deny having known him. Death is a fearful thing when you cannot even fight for what you believe in and because of that may lose it forever. It makes him deeply human and sympathetic, and I am excited to read about his efforts in full as one of the earliest fathers of the church in the Acts of the Apostles.

    I have to admit that I never cared for the book of Matthew before this study. I got a new vision of this man who preached Jesus to the Jews of his day. I was impressed with the amount of Old Testament references that he used which pointed directly to Jesus. I now love the Book of Matthew.

    First book of new testament. I won't lie, it's a bit underwhelming and disappointing that after following the entire family lineage in old testament they don't even get to give birth to the most iconic biblical characters. Joseph is the descendant of Adam, Joseph, Noah, King David and the rest, Mary is just a woman he was with. Kind of goes against the prophecies. Joseph only gets to be the step father of Jesus, the narration would be more interesting if Mary held the lineage. However...After look First book of new testament.

Joseph is the descendant of Adam, Joseph, Noah, King David and the rest, Mary is just a woman he was with. Kind of goes against the prophecies. Joseph only gets to be the step father of Jesus, the narration would be more interesting if Mary held the lineage. However...After looking at other sources it's still possible that she wasn't a virgin, that Jesus was a human with a holy spirit like other prophets. I've read this book twice for better understanding. 2:16 CH3 -baptism 3:11 3:16-17 - hmmmmm. 4:24-25 - healing. Chapter 5 - lessons taught by Jesus. Honestly i thought he's more laid back looking at Christians who are obsessed with forgiveness. He's pretty strict, but he's inspirational in a way. (Later chapters show that u should be more forgiving towards sins of others, just less forgiving towards ur own sins, hold urself to a higher standard, don't repeat ur sins mindlessly) 05:03-16 hmm 05:17-19 - alright. 5:20-22 - highlights the heaviness of lesser sins,just because u didnt kill doesn't make u pure, just for holding a grudge and being angry you against a brother u sin. 05:23-25 05:27-30 - uh oh. 05:31-32 05:33-37 5:39 - famous cheek quote 5:41-42 5:44-48 interesting 6:01-7 06:09-13 - prayer 6:14-15 - if u forgive other people god will forgive u, if u dont god wont forgive u either 6:16 6:19-20 :25 - hmm.6:31 07:06 07:08-12 07:21-23 08:24-27 - that was pretty funny 08:28-32 - hmm? 09:02- disease punishment for sin or side effect of being possessed? 10:01. More talk about evil spirit/ghosts than in old testament lol. 09:32-34 09:20-22 10:08 10:37 16:08 - Peter and church verse. 17:25-26 18:01-03 - who's the greatest in lords kingdom? children. Be like a child. 18:08-09 18:10 - god observing through the eyes of the small ones 18:15-17 18:19-20 18:21-22 - if someone sins against u , forgive them up to 77 times 18:26-35 - interesting, shows what happens if u dont forgive others, god wont forgive u 19:03 - can u divorce? -12. 19:16-19. 19:21 - if u want to be perfect sell what u have and give the poor then u will have treasure in heaven 19:24 - its hard for rich to go to heaven 20:17-19 - jesus goes with 12 students to jaresalem (This place...not again lol) to die 20:30-31 - son of david 21:15 21:19-22 lol why. first time jesus wished for death towards something and it was so random. Killed a tree because he was hungry and it had no fruits? would make more sense if he magically made it bear fruit, but funny. 23:05 - Jesus really dislikes people who do good things while showing off how good they are to the world 23:09 23:12 24:03 - 51 end of the world - It sounds it's like related to revelation book. Sounds like a war of jews vs rome. their false prophets probably pope. 25:42-46 - U should help the thirsty 27:01-05 - judas gave back coins and hanged himself 27:52 - a lot of people resurrected 27:57-27:60 - pilat gave body of jesus to joseph student of jesus which they put into a new grave. 28:01-6 -jesus got resurrected, angel appearance. mary and mary magdalene went to visit his grave after a week. 28:13-15 - hmm. 28:19-29 - Sooo that's how baptising got spread. 22:30-32 - god is not the god of the dead, but alive. There's no kingdom of the dead in "heaven" only resurrection in the day of the lord.

    As with Genesis, I'm not rating this text, because I doubt a text with this amount of cultural and social weight (like it or not) should be rated by the likes of me on a 1 to 5 star scale. My main question going into this book was "Was Jesus what Americans make him [Him?] out to be?" On finishing this book, I can say both yes and no. The idea of the rich somehow being more righteous/more in God's favor seems to be a later interpretation.

My main question going into this book was "Was Jesus what Americans make him [Him?] out to be?" On finishing this book, I can say both yes and no. The idea of the rich somehow being more righteous/more in God's favor seems to be a later interpretation. Indeed, Jesus' parables seem to preach something closer to a Hindu/Buddhist way of thinking, that materialism is something that inhibits you from growing close to God. There's that really nice line about how hard it is for a rich man to get into heaven. Honestly, if Jesus was alive today, I wouldn't be surprised if Americans called him a socialist. But you can also see the roots of the Protestant Work Ethic way of thinking in the original text––that if you truly believe in God, God will give you everything. This, I think, is one of the more interesting paradoxes of Jesus' teaching––yes, blessed are the poor, but why then, in a world when faith guarantees abundance, do the poor remain poor? Honestly, there's a really great parallel here to the paradox our own country faces––faith (in the system, in the American Dream) is supposed to guarantee abundance, but in America, the poor remain poor. In some ways, I can see why the Bible can be used to justify anything: blessed are the meek, but blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness (I'm paraphrasing, sorry). Jesus says to love everyone and forgive no matter the sin, but he also talks about hell an awful lot. 'The Parable of the Sower and the Seed' as an analogy to Judgement day seems to endorse Calvinist ideas of predestination (you don't seem to be able to choose if you are weed or wheat), but Jesus also encourages his disciples to reform sinners. And that's not even taking into account the nuances in translation, the variance in credibility between the writers, and the discrepancies between the books. It's complicated, and it's easy to see why some people dedicate their lives to the study of the Bible. As a bonus, I'm leaving you with my favorite line, hands down: "Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and unto God the things that are God's". (There are millions of interpretations here too)

The New Testament is wildly easier to read than the Old, I think in part because of Jesus, and in part because the narrative quality is now more or less first person, taking on a more modern atmosphere, even with all the parables, than the Old Testament's paragraphs upon paragraphs about who was the son of who. Jesus' story is really super cool when you break it down. I think most consider him and his biography to be some of the most interesting across world religions and mythologies, and I am one of them. It carries all the attributes of a pagan Greek fable, resurrection and all, and yet through context, dialogue, and other literary techniques, the Four Gospels are so perfectly Christian stories. I am looking forward to reading Mark, Luke, and John to compare the style and essence of each!

    Jesus is a harsher judge in this book than we want him to be. He is sorting those who will progress and those who will not. His judgements are harsh and black and white. He also helps the sick , spiritually and physically.

    How can I say anything to do this, or any of the Gospels, justice? The Gospel of Matthew, being the first book of the New Testament, is so full of divine wisdom, insight and hope, yet also deals with the suffering of our Lord on the Cross ... reading it finally, for me, is like sitting there on the mountain with Him, following Him through Judea, then seeing Him die upon the Cross before rising again in glory.

But this text could be the root of much suffering, centuries later.

    Rereading this specific account of Christ's life was eye opening. I found new passages that I now treasure and think about on a daily bases. I reread this book for my Bible class where I had to ouline it. Going through a book of the Bible this way makes you slow down and soak up every verse and what the theme of each section is. This felt very comforting to read about Christ's life during the Covid-19 pandemic. Rereading this specific account of Christ's life was eye opening.

    23:37 “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those who are sent to you! How often I have longed to gather your children together as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you would have none of it! 23:38 Look, your house is left to you desolate! 23:39 For I tell you, you will not see me from now until you say, ‘Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord!’”

    The reading of God's Word is so remarkable that there is nothing that I can say to make it any better. Please, if you are a lost soul, turn to God! He can heal you and give you the greatest peace that you will ever know! The reading of God's Word is so remarkable that there is nothing that I can say to make it any better.

    Read it. I like this translation even though it reads like "old english." I have read the gospels many times before but noticed something in this read that I had never seen before. Interesting.
