Matthew 2 – Gospel in Life

Book of the Bible: Matthew 2

Out of Egypt

Out of Egypt

Jesus’ family fled to Egypt due to Herod’s attempt to kill the child Jesus out of fear. Matthew chapter 2 also records the return of the family into Palestine. Why was the child such a threat to Herod? What may have prompted Joseph to consider returning to Judea at first instead of his hometown in Galilee? How do we make sense of the Hosea prophecy to Israel (“out of Egypt I called my son”) applied to Jesus? The message covers an object of hate, agent of grace, and climax of plan.
