Title: Matthew: The Gospel of Identity (The Biblical Imagination Series)
Publisher: InterVarsity Press (IVP)
Author: Michael Card

Description

Michael Card invites you to study the Gospel of Matthew in Matthew: The Gospel of Identity.

"You are the salt of the earth . . . You are the light of the world." Matthew 5:13-14 "I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church." Matthew 16:18

The world tries to define us in different ways. We try to define ourselves one way or another. But who are we really? How does God define us?

The Gospel of Matthew was written to a group of Christians who didn’t yet know who they were. They were faithful Jews in the synagogue community in Galilee who had found the Messiah. Jesus had changed everything. But how should they think of themselves now, as Jewish or Christian? What did it all mean?

Matthew writes his Gospel to help his readers define their new identity as followers of Jesus the Messiah. Michael Card unpacks how Matthew’s emphasis on fulfillment confirms their Jewish connection to the Torah, while his focus on the kingdom helps them understand their new identities in Christ. Matthew presents this process of redefinition as an exercise of the imagination, in which Jesus reshapes who we are in light of who he is.

Come alongside Matthew in this pilgrimage, and discover how your new identity in Christ fulfills all that you are meant to be.
