These Studies in Matthew progress more or less chapter by chapter through the Gospel of Matthew, but with some interruption to that natural progression from time to time. For example, parables with similar messages are grouped together.
The studies are enhanced by reference to other Scripture passages or verses that provide the background for Matthew's content or deal affirm similar truths to those presented by Matthew.
There are two dominant elements in these studies: the focus on Jesus Christ as the King of the Kingdom of God, and the focus on the radical discipleship commanded of those who by God's grace are members of his Kingdom.
If you are using these studies in a group context you will find that some individual studies will take longer than others, and may need to be spread over two or more study sessions. Note that studies 1, 2, 3, 4, 14, 19, 21, 23 and 28 are very short studies.
It is possible to break these studies up into distinct groupings: For example Studies 5 to 10 could be extracted as Studies on the Sermon on the Mount; and Studies 14-16,18,20 & 25 as Studies on the Parables.
