The Heart of the Matter

Matthew 1:18-24  (ID: 0563)

The book of Matthew introduces Jesus with the promise, “He will save his people from their sins.” Our lives are each a series of decisions, but the most crucial one we will ever make is whether to believe this claim about Jesus. Is there another sensible solution to sin in the world? Is Jesus an imposter, or is He the Savior? Alistair Begg calls us to admit our helplessness to fix our sin and trust Christ alone for eternal salvation.


The Birth of Jesus Christ

18Now the birth of Jesus Christ5 took place in this way. When his mother Mary had been betrothed6 to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child from the Holy Spirit.
