Reflection Questions
  • Create a chart that compares the genealogies of Jesus found in Luke and Matthew. After noting the major differences between the accounts, state in your own words why each Gospel included its particular genealogy.

  • Identify the missionary aspects of the Christian faith in Matthew and Luke’s account of Jesus’ birth. Write at least three “must” statements related to present-day missionary activity, (e.g., Missionaries must …).

  • According to Wilkins, what is distinctive about Matthew’s understanding of discipleship? How can his insights be helpful to the missionary’s work?
