What this world needs is a King who will rule it with firmness, wisdom, and compassion. This is the kind of King that God has planned for this world. His name is Jesus Christ, and He is God’s Son. But Jesus was rejected when He came to earth the first time, as you will see in your study of Matthew's account of Jesus' life.
Matthew evidently loved "King Jesus" and looked forward to the day when He will reign on earth. Our hope is that this passion and prospect will grip your heart as well.
