The Gospel of the Kingdom
Ushering in a new era, the earthly ministry of Jesus changed everything. Jesus made it crystal clear that God is on our side, doing everything possible to save us. Somewhat surprisingly, Jesus selected 12 apprentices, aka disciples, with the ultimate purpose of carrying on His mission following His departure. This meant that everything, (really, everything) had to be re-centered and reset. One of the twelve chosen to record and implement this "reset" was a former tax collector—Matthew.
