Matthew Chapter 2

We continue our ‘Reading Matthew in Lent‘ series today by reading through Chapter Two of St Matthew’s Gospel.

Reading Matthew in Lent‘ is a series of simple podcasts for the Lenten season offering a daily reading from St Matthew’s Gospel from Ash Wednesday to Easter Monday.

Matthew, Chapter 2: 1-23.

The second chapter of St Matthew’s Gospel describes the events after the birth of Jesus. We hear about the visit of the Wise Men who are travelling in search of a newborn king, about the attempt by King Herod to kill the infant Messiah, Joseph and his family’s flight into Egypt, and their return to live in Israel, settling in Nazareth.
