Matthew 3-4 Commentary


by Stephen Manley


The Cross Style Commentary Series combines expositional study in the Word of God with practical application for real-world living.



Matthew shows John the Baptist introducing the Messiah to the world. His message is “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand!” The blood sacrifice of Jesus is prepared by the forerunner—John the Baptist foreruns the cross style. This is the heart of the Kingdom from its beginning. It is the heart of the Kingdom in our day. It is the heart of the Kingdom in the eternal reality. It is about death to self-centeredness. It is a call to lose our lives and enter into the fullness of the Spirit of Christ. Let’s join John the Baptist in coming to the crucified Christ.

This exegetical commentary on Matthew 3-4 examines the message of John the Baptist, the baptism and temptation of Jesus, and the beginning of Jesus’ ministry as He calls disciples to be “fishers of men.”
