Resources on Matthew

Chapter 1


Please turn with me in your Bibles to Matthew chapter 1 as we begin an exposition of this great Gospel.  Let’s hear the word of the living God beginning in verse 1 of Matthew 1. 

“The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham. To Abraham was born Isaac; and to Isaac, Jacob; and to Jacob, Judah and his...


Christmas is a time for family. When we were kids, each Christmas in my family home, my brother and I would get up insufferably early. We usually would have to be sent back to bed two or three times before we were finally allowed out of our rooms. And then we’d all go downstairs and have breakfast. We were not allowed to touch the presents under the tree...

Songs of Christmas

Sermon on Dec 12, 2004

Matthew 1:18-25

Turn with me now in the Scriptures to Matthew, chapter one, and we're going to read verses 18 through 25; and if you can be ambidextrous this morning, have open before you the hymn, the carol that the choir sang so beautifully (but in slightly different words to the words the choir was singing), so we need the words, not in the bulletin, but in the hymnbook, of...

So what's in a name? A whole lot as it turns out. Names actually get me in trouble around here all the time. Let me give you an example. A few Sundays ago, I was preaching and I wanted to emphasize the fact that a previous generation here in our church has left a legacy for a new generation to follow. And so I spoke about the passing...


Turn with me in your Bibles to Matthew chapter 1. Last week, we saw some of the truths about our Savior set forth in the genealogy and this week, we attend God’s Word to us about His virgin birth. Matthew chapter 1, beginning in verse 18.

"Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows. When His mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they...


As you have been hearing, we are celebrating the coming of the Lord Jesus who came on a rescue mission to save us from our sin and guilt and to reconcile us to God. And to help us think about the Biblical teaching on that point, I want to invite you if you would to take your Bibles in hand and to turn with me to Matthew's gospel, chapter 1. We looked...

“The Best Gift of Christmas”

Matthew 1:18-23

The Reverend Dr. J. Ligon Duncan

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to the gospel of Matthew, Matthew chapter 1. We’re going to be looking together at verses 18 to 23 today. For the last number of years we have focused on themes during December relating to the...

Well, be that as it may, when news reached Joseph that Mary, his fiancee, was pregnant, there really was no possibility that the Bethlehem & District Hospital had made a mistake that day. In fact, poor Joseph was facing a nightmare scenario, wasn't he? In those days and in that culture, betrothal was about as serious and as inviolable as marriage itself, which is why verse 19 makes...

Apostles' Creed

Sermon on Mar 2, 2003

Matthew 1:18-25, Luke 1:26-38

The Apostles’ Creed I believe in Jesus Christ…conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary Matthew 1:18-25; Luke 1:26-38

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to Matthew, chapter 1. As we continue to work our way through The Apostles’ Creed, we are going to be looking at those two phrases: “conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary,”...
