All the disciples knew their Bible, but they had not grasped that it was all about Jesus and God s saving power revealed through Him that all the Law of Moses, the Prophets, and the Psalms reveal the good news of Jesus Christ. Once the disciples came to recognize this truth, Matthew takes it most seriously. He writes his Gospel with the premise that Jesus is the fulfillment of Jewish Scriptures.
The Law, the Prophets and the Psalms contain prophecies about Jesus prophecies in the form of promises about what Jesus would accomplish through His perfect life, perfect death and perfect resurrection. Journey with the author through the book of Matthew, and you will discover that all the Law, the Prophets and the Psalms are all about Him!
