The purpose of this study is to prove that Jesus is the King of the Jews. He is the Jewish Messiah that they are still waiting for. He will come in the clouds, and every eye will see him. The Messiah had to be a descendant of Abraham and David. Jesus fulfilled this condition. The Gospel of Matthew is a bridge between the Old Testament prophets and the New Testament revelation of Jesus, the son of God.
James and Jude had not been disciples, but were educated by those that followed Moses law. Jesus appeared to James after his resurrection. That was when James completely believed this man he had grown up with was really the son of God. Jude calls himself the brother of James.
As a young foreigner in Egypt, Joseph succeeded against overwhelming odds. Uprooted from his family in Canaan and sold as a slave in Egypt, he made the best of unpromising situations. Sold to Potiphar as a field hand, he worked diligently and soon became overseer of Potiphar's entire estate. Though innocent of any wrongdoing, Potiphar's wife accused him of attempted rape, and Potiphar threw him into a prison house.
