Who is the promised Messiah,
the King who will
sit on the throne of David?
What is His kingdom?

What is the character
and lifestyle
of those who are a part of this kingdom?

Matthew Part 1
answers these questions
and brings you face-to-face with
the long-awaited  Jewish Messiah.

Walk with Jesus
through the towns
and villages of the Galilee,
see the miracles He performs--
healing the sick,
casting out demons,
calming the seas.
Listen to His teaching
as He explains His kingdom. And then evaluate your life against the standard
Jesus holds high
and ask:
Does my life show
that I'm part of His kingdom?
