What would it be like to be discipled by Jesus? What could we learn from him about relationships, priorities, possessions, the future? What could we learn from his actions? If you long for a personal touch from Jesus, then study Matthew's Gospel. Matthew was a practical man, and through his writings you will get to know Jesus better as you see him respond to people in need, handle conflict and deal with opposition.
