Alfred Edersheim - If Jesus is not the Messiah, the world has not, and never can have, a Messiah In Jesus, God kept his promise. He is the One. Matthew 1.1 There is only One who can change your life, forgive your sin, and bring you to God, that One is Jesus. Matthew Begins His Story With Family The Christmas story, the birth, begins with the family of Jesus, and it tells us “He is the One” Matthew Invites Us To Join His Story Matthew invited all of them to follow this man, to follow Jesus. He was the One who was the One.
