Things I have learnt/thought about from reading the gospel Matthew.

  1. In Chapter 1, it talks about the Holy Spirit specifically that Jesus was conceived by the Holy Spirit. I always had the impression that the Holy Spirit only came once Jesus had died resurrected and was leaving the earth and in replacement, left his Holy Spirit. In reality however, the Holy Spirit has always been around, Jesus death only reinforced the presence of the Holy Spirit.
  2. The Joseph who is the earthly father of Jesus is not the same Joseph with the technicolour coat. The Joseph with the technicolour coat is found in Genesis and Jesus’s father or guardian is St Joseph. More information can be found on
  3. During the time of Jesus’ birth, the astrologers saw a star which they followed to where Jesus was born in Bethlehem. Do stars symbolise new births?

If you know the answers or better interpretations of the ideas I’veĀ mentioned, please feel free to drop a comment.

Some amazing nuggets of scripture I took out of Matthew:

Matthew 5:14

‘You are the world’s light – a city on a hill,glowing in the night for all to see.’

Matthew 6:21

‘If your profits are in heaven your heart will be there too.’
