All Righteousness

2.1 Matthew and the Fulfillment of Scripture.

2.1.1 Three Period Genealogy of Jesus. Matthew’s Introduction and the Scripture. Matthew proved repeatedly that Jesus the Nazarene fulfilled the Scriptures concerning the Messiah. In the first chapter of the Gospel of Matthew focused upon the genealogy of Messiah, divided into three periods of fourteen generations (Abraham to David, David to Deportation, Deportation to Messiah) (Matthew 1:1-17, page 1501).

2.1.2 Conception of Jesus. Concerning the conception of Jesus, Matthew revealed that Mary was with child by the Holy the Spirit. At the time, she was betrothed to Joseph, but an angel appeared to Joseph and revealed that the Child conceived in Mary was of the Holy Spirit. Mary will bear a Son, and Joseph shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.” According to Matthew, all those things took place that what was spoken (“τὸ ῥηθὲν“)  by the Lord through the prophets (“ὑπὸ κυρίου διὰ τοῦ προφήτου“) may be fulfilled (“πληρωθῇ “): “Behold, the virgin shall be with child and shall bear a son, and they call His name Immanuel, which translated means, God with us” (Isaiah 7:14, Isiah 9:6-7). Matthew used various forms of the word “fulfill” to show how the Old Testament related to the life and times of Jesus the Nazarene.

2.1.3 Bethlehem. When King Herod questioned the chief priests and the scribes to inquire about the birthplace of Messiah, they replied by quoting what was written by the prophet Micah: “And you, Bethlehem, land of Judah, are by no means least among the the leaders of Judah; for out of you shall come forth a Ruler who will shepherd my people in Israel” (Micah 5:2, page 1457). Micah described the King who be rule or Israel, and shepherd the flock in the strength of the LORD, in the majesty of the name of the LORD His God. The Messiah King would be great to the ends of the earth and He will be the peace of Israel when Assyria invades (Micah 5:1-15, pages 1457-1458). Matthew proved from the prophet Micah that the Messiah King was to be born in Bethlehem of Judah (Matthew 2:1-7, page 1502–the religious leaders related what was written by the prophet (“οὕτως γὰρ γέγραπται διὰ τοῦ προφήτου“)). Notice that here Matthew did not use the term “fulfill,” because Matthew merely related what the religious leaders cited in the Old Testament.

2.1.4 Egypt. Matthew also related that Mary and Joseph fled from King Herod because the angel of the Lord warned them to flee from Herod who would search for the Child to destroy Him. So, Joseph fled to Egypt and remained there until King Herod died. Matthew points out that this flight to Egypt and return to Israel fulfilled the what had been spoken through the prophet (“ἵνα πληρωθῇ τὸ ῥηθὲν ὑπὸ κυρίου διὰ τοῦ προφήτου“) (Matthew 2:14-15, page 1503).

2.1.5 RamahKing Herod

 

10.1 John the Baptist. John the Baptist came preaching: “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand” (Matthew 3:2, page 1504. He had a very specific view of the kingdom of God which he proclaimed. John warned the Pharisees and the Sadducess coming for baptism that they were vipers and asked who warned them to flee from the wrath to come (Matthew 3:7, page 1504). John the Baptist warned them that although they claim Abraham as their father, God is able to raise up children of Abraham from the stones (Matthew 3:9, page 1504). John the Baptist declared that the axe was already laid at the root of the trees; therefore, every tree that does not bear good fruit in keeping with repentance would be cut down and thrown into the fire (Matthew 2:10, page 1504).  John the Baptist then contrasted his baptism with the baptism of the He Who comes after John the Bapsits. John the Baptist baptized with water for repentance. In contrast, He Who comes after John the Baptist is mightier than John the Batpist, and John the Baptist was not worthy to remove His sandals. The Coming One will baptize them with the Holy Spirit and with fire. His winnowing fork is in his hand, and He will thoroughly clear His threshing floor; and He will gather His wheat into the barn, but He will burn up the chaff with the unquenchable fire. Therefore, we may highlight the view of John the Baptist regarding the kingdom of God.

10.1.1 Wrath of GodThe Coming ONe would bring the wrath of God.

10.1.2 Baptism of Fire. The Coming One will bapatize with the Holy Spirit (believers) and fire (the chaff of unbelievers).

10.1.2 Winnowing ForkThe Coming ONe would bring he winnowing fork and separate the wheat from the chaff. The wheat would go into His barn, but the chaff would burn up with unquenchable fire.

10.2 The Arrest of John the Baptist. When John was in prison, he heard about the works of Christ (Matthgew 11:2, page 1518).. What John the Baptist hjeard provoked John the Baptis tto question if Jesus was indeed the “Expected One” who would bring the wrath of God, the baptism of fire, and the winnowing fork for destruction.

10.3 Go and Report. Jesus sought to expand the John the Baptist’s understanding of  the kingdom of God, just as He would do later for Peter (Matthew 16). Jesus quoted Isaiah 61 regarding the favorable year of the LORD (Isaiah 61:1-2, page 1167). AFter Jesus performed many miracles of healing, Jesus warned people not to tell Who He was. Matthew indicated taht Jesus fulfilled the prophey of Isaiah “Behole, My servant Whom I have chose; My BEloved in Whom IMy sould is well-pleased; I will put My Spirit upon Him, and He wahll proclaim justice ot the Gentiles. He will not quarrell, nor cry out.

Repentance preparatory to the salvation offered by faith in Jesus.

[,behold my servant whom I have chosen my beloved in whom my soul is well pleased I will put my spirit upon him and he shall proclaim Justice to the gentiles he will not quarrel nor cry out nor will anyone hear his voice in the streets a battered Reed he will not break up in a small during wick he will not put out until he leads Justice to victory in his name the gentiles will help now turning to Matthew 11 please note that in Matthew 11 verse 2 when John was in prison he heard of The works of Christ and that provoked him to question whether or not Jesus was the expected one Jesus answered by saying go and report to John what you hear and see the blind receive sight and the lame walk the lepers cleansed in the dep hear the dead are raised up in the poor have the gospel preached to them go see Isaiah 35 verse 5

John based upon what we read earlier is expecting a kingdom to come the king to come the coming one will come with fire judgment winnowing fork and kill all the bad guys this chat and put them into unquenchable fire paragraph paragraph space go down

Jesus said about John the Baptist that the he is the one who is more than a profit this is the one about whom it is written behold I send my messenger ahead of you will prepare your way before you truly I said you among those born of women there is not a reason anyone greater than John the Baptist got the one who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than

So we see here with John the Baptist that Jesus said no one is greater than him it’s been boring him of women then he cut dengesiz contrast that with it yet the one who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he noticed that Jesus is st. John the Baptist is definitely in the kingdom of God but yet John the Baptist is least in the kingdom of God how can both of those things be true well we need to remember what John said about his view of the kingdom of God it’s very similar to what Peter said about the kingdom of God Peter thought that Jesus was definitely the Christ and he had the words of eternal life Jesus said that Peter Ali knew that because his father had revealed that to him John the Baptist certainly understands that Jesus is the Christ but his understanding of what the Christ does the coming one the expected one is bring all this judgment Jesus was not bringing that judgment John was sitting in jail on trial for his life essentially and was must must have been wondering if you’re the Christ why haven’t you killed all the bad guys and that clearly hasn’t happened Jesus extolled the virtues of John but says that John is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than anyone who is in the kingdom of yet the one who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he and then Jesus begins to explain what that means from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence Matthew 12 1112 and violent men take it by force just like Jesus said regarding Paul Paul Paul Saul Saul why do you persecute me to persecute John is to persecute the kingdom of God just like when Saul persecuted the church that was the same as person getting Jesus so when he read incarcerated John that’s violent violent King persecuting the kingdom of God and suffering the kingdom of God suffers violence when the members of the kingdom of God but wait we said that John was the least among those people what John’s view of the kingdom of God was all death and destruction brought by the coming month but that hasn’t happened that provoked the question who are you Jesus Jesus answers I’m the one who’s expanding your view of the kingdom by telling you that the kingdom of God is about Jesus coming and offering these great things then we go farther in Matthew 11 and he says it probably prophets and the law prophesied until John noticed that he’s winding us up in that John is a stopping point are the prophets and the law the law is similar of course the most is making us prophecies about Christ in about the Lord saying that the law and the prophets and John 10 where he talks about the law they all prophesy about him but it’s suffering violence and violent men take it by force and Matthew 11:12 Jesus is drawing attention to the fact that when you attack one of the members of the kingdom like John the Baptist find car trade in them the kingdom of God and deed is suffering and men are taking it by force you take one of the members you’re taking the kingdom but remember that a contrast is between jesus’s view of the kind of the kingdom of God where he comes as a separating servant and he proclaims life and happiness and victory and works huge miracles contrast that with John’s view of the coming one is bringing death destruction and wrath but of course the disciples saw that too and they had a problem with that but you remember to that Jesus previously had gone out and healed the sick and I’m not previously but later and Matthew chapter 12 Jesus had many people following him and he healed them all but he warned them not to tell who he was Matthew 12:17 this was to fulfill what has spoken through Isaiah the prophet and I quoted that above clearly what Jesus is doing is incompatible to John with the one who’s coming and that’s a big deal but the essence of Matthew 11 is that John is least in the kingdom of God because of his view of the kingdom of God they still waiting on the strong Messiah to come and kill everybody Jesus said anybody who’s in the kingdom that I’m proclaiming is already experiencing the miracles in the joy of itsubway see here with John the Baptist that Jesus to said no one’s greater than him his been born am of women then he cut done Jesus contrast that with it yet the one who is least and the kingdom of heaven is greater than he noticed that Jesus to same John the Baptist is definitely in the kingdom of God but yet John the Baptist is least and the kingdom of God how can both of those things be true well we need to remember what John said about to his view of the kingdom of God it’s very somewhere to what Peter said about the kingdom of God Peter thought that Jesus was definitely the Christ and he had the words of eternal life Jesus said that Peter only knew that because it’s father had revealed that to him John the Baptist certainly understand that Jesus is the Christ but his understanding the what the Christ the does the coming one the expected one is bring all this judgement cheese’s was not bringing that judgement John was sitting in jail on trial for his life essentially and was must must have been wondering if you’re the Christ by haven’t you killed all the bad guys and that clearly hasn’t happened she is a six tolls the virtues of John but says that John is least and the kingdom of heaven is greater than that anyone who is in the kingdom of yet the one who was least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he and then Jesus begins to explain what that means from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence Matthew 1211 12 and violent men take it by Forest just like Jesus said regarding Paul Paul Paul
