Jesus is King.

Standing as a central theme of the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus's kingly authority has profound implications for our lives today—changing the way we view the world, interact with others, and respond to blessings and hardships.

In this reader-friendly commentary, seasoned pastor Doug O'Donnell leads us through the first book of the New Testament, highlighting key themes and offering contemporary illustrations for preaching. Drawing on years of pastoral experience, O'Donnell helps us to see how Matthew's various emphases—including Jesus's messianic titles, fulfillment of Old Testament prophecy, teaching on the kingdom of heaven, and present and future role as judge—all relate to Christ's kingship over all of creation.

Full of biblical insights aimed at both pastors and laypersons, this volume ultimately highlights Matthew's call to all people to worship and obey Jesus, our humble King and gracious Savior.
