The Gospel According to Matthew
Dramas | Audio • 2h 48m
"Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand" (Mt 3:2). St. Matthew's account of the life of Jesus Christ emphasizes that he is the King of the Jews, the one who was to come and fulfill God's promise to re-establish the kingdom of David. St. Matthew's Gospel is often called "The Catechist's Gospel" because it contains many of the stories and teachings of Christ that we know and love: the angel's appearance to St. Joseph, the wise men at the birth of Christ, the Beatitudes, the Sermon on the Mount, St. Peter's declaration and the giving of the keys, and the parables about the kingdom of heaven. The Gospel of Matthew is truly the story of the good news that God is with us.
The audio bible uses the RSV Second Catholic Edition Text (RSV-2CE).
