Reading Matthew 2

  • Herod was distressed when he heard the news of the Messiah’s birth? Why? This sounds like a good topic for an essay.
  • All of Jerusalem was disturbed too (v 3). Why, I wonder.
  • In verse 11, Matthew mentions that the wise men saw Jesus with his mother, Mary but Joseph is not mentioned. Interesting.
  • Matthew quotes a lot of OT prophecies.
  • It seems the angel always appeared to Joseph in dreams, not in his waking hours. Good thing he didn’t pass off the dreams as just dreams.
  • Joseph was scared of Archelaus, Herod’s son.
