Matthew 2

Wise Men from the East Visit Jesus

Were there 3 wise men? The Bible does not specify how many wise men there were, but because they gave Jesus 3 gifts, it is therefore assumed there were 3 wise men.
By the Time the Wise Men Arrive,

Jesus Is No Longer a Baby, But a “Child”

Joseph & Mary take Jesus and Escape to Egypt
Herod Kills All the Boys 2 Years Old & Younger In & Near Bethlehem (Jesus may have been as old as 2 years old)Years Later, Joseph, Mary, & Jesus Leave Egypt
& Move to Nazareth in Galilee

Matthew 3

John the Baptist Prepares the Way & Tells the People: “Repent of Your Sins & Turn to God” [Please note: John baptized onlyADULTS (not babies) since they had to “repent” of their sins]John Baptizes Repentant Sinners IN the Jordan River [they were ALL adults—there were no babies!]

Don’t Call Others an Insulting Name

We Must Do Everything We Possibly Can to Make Sure We Don’t Sin [in other words, we are to take sin extremely serious!]Whoever Divorces His Wife for Any Reason (Other Than Sexual Immorality)
Causes Her to Commit Adultery!
And If You Marry a Divorced Woman, Then You Are Committing Adultery!
We Are NOT to Swear — Instead, We Are to Say Either Just “Yes” or “No” (In other words, we are NOT to say: “I swear to...” or “I swear on...”, etc.)
We Are to Go the Second Mile
We Are to Love Our Enemies
We Are to be Perfect (as Our Heavenly Father is)
[This is the 1st time that God is referred to as our Father]


Matthew 6

When You Give to the Poor, Don’t Let Others Know About It (keep it to yourself)
Pray Privately to God (in your room with the door closed)The Model Pray (don’t ramble on & repeat yourself)

Unless We Forgive Others, God Won’t Forgive Us

When Fasting, Wash Your Face & Comb Your Hair

Don’t Store Physical Treasures — Instead Store Up Spiritual Treasures in Heaven (by doing good)
