The Gospel of Matthew presents Christ as King. It is written by a Jew primarily for the Jewish people, whose great hope was for the coming of an oft-promised Messiah. This Messiah would restore the former glories of the kingdom, elevate Israel to the head of the nations, and reign “from the river unto the ends of the earth” (Psalm 72:8). The Jews were so enamored of the promises of a Messiah coming to reign that they forgot the promises of a Messiah coming to redeem. They wanted a militant King who would break the power of Rome, but God sent them a meek King. The Jews wanted a Sovereign; God sent them a Savior. As soon as the spiritual dimensions of Christ’s ministry became evident, the Jews turned against Him. He was not the kind of Messiah they had been led to expect.
Matthew’s main objective was to convince the Jews that Jesus of Nazareth was indeed their promised Messiah. Yet there is no exclusivism in Matthew’s Gospel. He saw beyond Israel to the church, which was already a power in the world when he wrote. He saw the Gentiles coming into the blessing of God through faith in the Lord Jesus. Matthew’s book begins within the confines of Jewish thought, but ends with the Lord’s commission to take the gospel into all the world.
