Christ born of Mary

Matthew 1:18 – 25

“Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows:”
(Matthew 1:18)

I love the way that Matthew writes
The way that he thinks
It’s almost as if he is about
To give bullet points:
1, 2, 3, 4…

And in a way he does just that
As he retells the story
From betrothal to birth
In a few short verses

Now the difficulty with doing
A study of the four Gospels
Is that I am being drawn
To think of the other three
Gospels in how they relay this story

And the temptation is to try
And compare between them
Which is something that others
Have already done
And you can Google to find that out

So I find myself writing this
Explanation at this point
And encouraging anyone who
May be thinking the same thing
To do your own study
And make your own comparisons
As led by the Holy Spirit

Suffice it to say that I will be
Trying my best to comment
On each passage
In each chapter
Of each Gospel
For its own merits
As the Holy Spirit directs me
