Bible-Smart: Matthew by Mike Nappa


Honest Questions Everyone Has about the Bible

SKU: BK2950 Categories: ,


Studying the Bible doesn’t have to be a chore, and understanding God’s Word doesn’t mean slogging through dull commentaries stuffed with theological jargon. Bible-Smart: Matthew is an invitation to sit down together and talk about honest questions everyone has about the Bible. Every page is a relaxed, enjoyable conversation through the Gospel of Matthew. Covering more than 200 questions, Mike Nappa gives well-researched and thoughtful, yet nondogmatic answers to what you’ve always been curious about.

There is joy in discovering the riches of God’s Word, and curiosity is the first step. Each Q&A can be read in under two minutes, making this book perfect for small-group Bible studies, young-adult ministries, or personal reading and devotion. This is a new kind of commentary for today’s generation. Sample questions include:

  • No one seems to know what happened to Mary’s husband, Joseph – why?
  • Why does Jesus call himself the “Son of Man”?
  • What was it like to live with leprosy in Jesus’ time?
  • If Jesus clearly promises “you will receive what you ask for” in prayer, why do so many prayers go unanswered?
  • What does it mean that the curtain in the Temple was torn in two when Jesus died?
  • Do we know where Jesus was buried?
  • Do “outer darkness” and “weeping and gnashing of teeth” always refer to hell, or are there other interpretations?
  • Why was Peter so afraid of a little servant girl that he would deny even knowing Jesus?

If your spirit is hungry, then Bible-Smart: Matthew is where you get fed. In here you’ll draw closer to Jesus as you develop a greater understanding of God’s Word—and awaken to the difference that makes in your day-to-day life.
