Building on the foundation laid in The Great Adventure bible Timeline, this next study in the Great Adventure series, Adventures in Matthew: The King and His Kingdom by Jeff Cavins, focuses on Jesus as the fulfillment of the promises of the Old Testament. It also touches on Jesus' establishment of the Church as the Kingdom of Heaven on earth, making it an excellent introduction to the Great Adventures study on the acts of the Apostles. Set in the rich context of Jesus' Jewish culture, this study will help you understand the universal truths of the Kingdom of God; it will help you understand more fully God's will for us today.

|Review:||This gives a student an excellent background on St Matthew, and goes beyoud the surface. The cd's can be listen to on the go or at a desk with a Bible and notes. Cons: Expensive; Pros: High Quality|

|Review:||Well-suited to Catholic adult faith formation in a parish setting. Our group ranges in age from high school sophomores to grandparents. We have studied other programs taught by Jeff Cavins and highly recommend his study of St. Matthew's gospel. Pros: Theologically sound|
