We are continuing our daily Bible studies with the Gospel of Matthew. We have just completed the Book of Genesis. jasonc, suggested that we study Matthew and then go back into the Old Testament for a study in Exodus. Reba and I would love to have any member of CF.net join us in this in depth study with your comments, questions and just good fellowship. For those who are returning for this study, we will welcome all who decide to study with us. So come for a slow study, no hurry to rush thru this fantastic Gospel.

I noticed that matthew one starts with the book of the generation of Christ. I believe luked used the lxx and also temple records to make the connection. but matthew used the Hebrew tanach and also the temple record.

Matt Henry ...
10. The line is brought down, not to Mary the mother of our Lord, but to Joseph the husband of Mary (Mat_1:16); for the Jews always reckoned their genealogies by the males: yet Mary was of the same tribe and family with Joseph, so that, both by his mother and by his supposed father, he was of the house of David; yet his interest in that dignity is derived by Joseph, to whom really according to the flesh he had no relation, to show that the kingdom of the Messiah is not founded in a natural descent from David.

I'm encouraged because my old Buddy Mike is going to join us in the study of Matthew. I hope others will join with us as well.

Great Chopper.. Mike is a good man...
Thanks Reba, Mike helped me immensely when I first started posting. I remember some very good info on the great sin of Job. It really helped me to see more clearly Job's situation. His great sin was fear.

Dont forget English jasonc :confused2
Translation:

Tanach
- All the books from B'resheet to Davari Hayamim - Bet
lxx (sometimes LXX) - The Tanach used by the talmidim in the first century

I forgot to add that the Tanach is subdivided into the Torah, Neviim and Ketuvim.

I guess I didn't explain it well enough.

The Torah starts with B'resheet and ends with Devarim. The Nevi'im goe from Yehoshuah to Mal'aki and the Ketuvim start with Tehillim and go on to Davari Hayamim - Bet.

Why are you looking at me like that? I can feel it from thousands of miles away.

Ok...

Tanach (sometimes transliterated as "Tanak")is the Hebrew term for what Christians usually call the Old Testament. It is an acronym from the words "Torah" (Law), "Nevi'im" (Prophets) and "Ketuvim" (Writings).
LXX is the Roman numeral 70, and is an abbreviation for the Septuagint, which was a Greek version of the Hebrew Scriptures, which was translated by 70 rabbis, hence the name.

I believe I want to get back in here, now. This looks to be in depth again and I was burned out after the year in Genesis with my class.
