In the providence of God, the Gospel of Matthew heads the twenty-seven books of the New Testament. It serves the same purpose as Genesis does to the thirty-nine books of the Old Testament. It is the seed plot of the entire New Testament, and it introduces the rest of the books therein. For this reason, it is imperative that God's people have a good understanding of this book. It is the book of the King and of His kingdom. This is the gospel that "shall be preached in the whole world for a testimony unto all nations; and then the end shall come" (Matt. 24.14). Satan knows the significance of this gospel, so he tries every means to keep it unknown or misunderstood throughout the Church age. Now we are living at the end of the last days. The message of the King and His kingdom is not just relevant to our days, it is also urgent to our understanding so that we as God's children will be better prepared for the manifestation of the kingdom of the heavens as well as be effectively used as instruments to usher in His kingdom.

Throughout his ministry Watchman Nee gave several studies on the Gospel according to Matthew. Early on, in the mid-1920s, from 1924 to 1926, he prepared some notes on Matthew chapters 1 and 2 only and had them published in the Morning Star magazine by the Morning Star Publishers, Chefoo, China. Then, in his early ministry in Shanghai, from 1927 to early 1935, he held a protracted study with the saints on Matthew, the longhand notes of which are published in English as: The King and the Kingdom of Heaven. Finally, he gave another study on Matthew in Shanghai between 1950 and 1952. Full notes were taken, but the manuscript was never finished nor published. All this indicates how important it was to Watchman Nee that the message of the King and the kingdom be proclaimed and understood.

This present volume includes both the author's last study on Matthew (1950-52) as well as his earliest notes on this Gospel (1924-26). Part One gives his matured view, while Part Two presents his earliest study. These two studies have been put together purposely in order to illustrate the progress our brother made, from knowing the letter of the word to entering into the spirit of the word while still keeping to the letter. This ought to be true in the study of any of the sacred letters. May God, who mercifully preserved these manuscripts, use this book to bless His children.

Interpreting Matthew May 24, 2016
Reviewer: JM from Key West, FL  
Interpreting Matthew is the single BEST, DEEPEST, most AMAZING book, other than the Bible itself, of course, that I've ever read.

My dear friends,
It is truly a blessing to read from brother Watchman Nee, a teacher of God's Son. I have been learning so much from his book Interpreting Matthew, that I have never seen before. All the promises of God, for all of us who believe in his word! It just parts the hairs on the heads of people that don’t really see the word of God as the Book of Life. Our covenant that we have is ten times a hundred more important to us than any other covenant in the bible of the Old Testament.
