Audible Editor Reviews

One of the four main gospels, Matthew's carefully structured account provides an in-depth genealogy to show God's purposeful design while linking both the Old and New Testaments. Matthew's story is an earlier account of Jesus' birth and public services, spanning from the Son of God's miraculous birth to his crucifixion and resurrection. Dr. Bill Creasy handles this gospel's stirring rhetoric with intelligence; meanwhile, his straightforward diction and soothing tone make this lecture approachable for all listeners. While occasional background noises can distract, this lesson is overall a fascinating look at one of the world's most important texts.

Publisher's Summary

Although Matthew may not be the first written Gospel, like Isaiah it is positioned first in its sequence of four Gospels. Opening with a 42-generation genealogy, Matthew reminds us of the linear nature of God’s plan, and Matthew forms a link—a swinging door—between the Old and New Testaments. Matthew is a Jew writing for a Jewish audience, and his Gospel provides our first perspective on the birth and public ministry of Jesus Christ. Join Logos Bible Study’s Dr. Bill Creasy as he leads us through this dazzling work.

    "Best Bible study ever"
    Any additional comments?

    This is the best Bible study I have listened to ever. Dr. Creasy makes the Gospel both understandable and relevant through his insights of context, history and geography. His stories also make it entertaining. He has eliminated the mythology of Jesus and his disciples and made them understandable, flesh and blood friends that I wish I could have known. I am certainly continuing in the study series.

    Story
    "Excellent Bible Study"
    Any additional comments?

    I also posted this on Amazon.com.

    Dr. Creasy covers each book verse-by-verse, providing context to the material by explaining other passages in the Bible that may relate to a passage under study, with descriptions of corresponding historical events and the geography and their relationship to the passage, as well as anecdotes from his travels or study. I find it extremely helpful to study the Bible in context with geography and history.

    As explained in the opening chapter of Genesis, this study starts with Genesis in the Old Testament, then moves to Matthew in the New Testament, then Exodus and Leviticus in the Old Testament, then back to Mark in the New Testament, and so on. Dr. Creasy does this because 1) if covered in weekly segments, as done in his class, it would be in year 5 before he got to Matthew, and 2) to help show the relationship between Old Testament and New Testament.

    This is the second in the Logos Bible Study series, preceded by Genesis and followed by Exodus.

    I have been looking for a guideline online, but haven't been able to find one yet. If I find one, I will try to post the next book to be read in each book's review once I complete each book.

    Life, peace, and history.

    The fact that the story comes to life and the cross reference of scriptures.

    Story
    "Dr. Bill hit it out of the park with this one"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Matthew to be better than the print version?

    Dr. Bill s an expert the history, the archaeology ,and what it was like to live and different times. There is enough gravitas there for senior Christians and newbies. Hetakes teaching the word of God seriously and approaches it with humor!

    Dr. Bill states what the Lord says,, and then might go off into various interpretations but iin the end he is word-based always word based!

    He makes the Bible fun!

    Dr. Bill has opened up the Bible to me and thousands of others! He is a gem if I did not get to meet him on earth than I will certainly meet him in heaven in which I will give him a big hug!

    That not only goes for Daniel but for other books of the Bible! I originally started listening to his series in preparation of precepts upon precepts studying revelation! and it made it a whole lot easier on me! I am ones and those who actually understands revelation!


    I wish there were more people out there like Dr. Bill and there would be more Christians without a doubt!

    "A Great Lecture Series!"

    This is another great lecture series from Dr. Bill Creasy. He is always incredibly insightful and engaging. He often supplements the material with personal stories which are relevant and interesting. He has taken several trips to Israel and the Middle East where he visits the locations depicted in the Bible and he shares those first hand accounts which enables him to take you back to that point in time that the scripture is talking about.

    Story
    "get comfortable and open your Bible"
    Any additional comments?

    I've listened to a few of Dr Creasy's Bible studies now. They're all good. This one comforted me a great when I finally heard heard that he prays before and after each of his lessons. I don't know why most all of his lessons leave out his prayers. Anyway, knowing that he prays before teaching God's Word help me quite a bit knowing that the Holy Spirit is guiding these studies.

    These studies provide great insight into each book. I can't recommend them enough. I'm all in of Dr Creasy's through the Bible study. I invite you to join as well. My only regret is that I mostly listen to these during my long commute and I wish I had my Bible to take notes.

    Story
    "Read Mathew, then listen, it will come alive."

    Dr. creasy makes the book of Mathew come alive, after considering: cultural, archeological and historical aspects, this audio will make more sense after reading the gospel of Mathew at least once.

    Dr. creasy over sees the book of Matthew as a piece of literature letting his audience understand what the author of the Gospel is trying to say to his original audience, after considering: the sources, the intended audience and how the book it's broken down as an outline.

    Some great moments in this audio book are: the sermon of the mount, the kingdom parables, the crucifixion and the resurrection, specially when Dr. Creasy mentions the meanin behind the sign on top of the cross that reads: Jesus king of the jews.

    a negative side it's only when he mentions that he is running out of time and seems to rush through important aspects of the resurrection.

    Overall a great listen Dr. Creasy remains non bias on doctrine therefore nothing to fear, I do recommend this audio to layman and even scholars will enjoy.
