About "The King and His Kingdom (Matthew) (Welwyn Commentary Series)"
According to the Lord Jesus Christ, our first priority must be to seek the kingdom of God. The aim of Matthew's Gospel is to help the Christian to fulfil that duty. To do this, we must above all honour, trust and serve the King himself, Jesus Christ. This commentary is, therefore, both Christ-centred and practical. Its focus is the King and his kingdom. The Gospel begins with the assertion that God's King has come to reign, to establish the kingdom of heaven. The time has come for Old Testament prophecy to be fulfilled and God's purpose of salvation to be put into effect. Our message, then, must call on men to believe in the King, to repent of sin and 'to seek first his kingdom and his righteousness'. In this way men and women will share in the salvation that the King came to bring, leading them also to work for the coming of the kingdom through the preaching of the gospel.
