This commentary was designed so that it can be used for both personal devotions and preaching, as well as for teaching a bible study group or Sunday school class. Each section contains an exposition of the verse, followed by a concise interpretation, which is then followed up by its message & application. The book also has a cross reference index providing supporting bible verses that can be looked up and read. This commentary was also formatted in a way that allows the reader or bible study group to grow at their own pace regardless of their education, walk, or age. For those that are more advanced will want to study the expository sections of Greek terms, thoughts, and phrases. Along with variant bible translations, metaphors, and synonyms. While younger groups may just want to touch on the interpretation and application sections only. Indeed every believer, minister, and Sunday school teacher will want to have on their bookshelves copies of this work that can prepare them with the necessary tools and resources needed in developing their own personal bible study, devotion, and sermon plan. The author's prayer is that the fruit contained in this book will bring the Gospel alive in the hearts of every believer, allowing them to grow in a deeper understanding of God's word and how to apply it to their daily lives. The author has also provided an online web link to the book (www.matthewlifeapplication.com) allowing the reader to find additional notes that were not able to be squeezed into this book. As well as post their own thoughts, insights, and applications.
