 Our Description

Mystery of the Kingdom is a refreshing study of the Gospel of Matthew that focuses on the "kingdom of God." Why is the kingdom at the heart of Jesus’ teaching? What were Jesus’ contemporaries expecting? What is the relationship between the "kingdom" and the Catholic Church we see today? Join popular Scripture professor Edward Sri for a faithful exploration of Jesus’ "kingdom –building" mission. Sri’s accessible style and provocative study questions make this book ideal for individual or group study.

Imprimatur: Most Rev. Gilbert I. Sheldon, D.D., D. Min.

"Emmaus Road has done it again! Through this dynamic Bible study, Sri shows us why his college courses are overflowing with excited students - he makes the Scriptures come alive."
- Curtis A. Martin, President, Fellowship of Catholic University Students

"Edward Sri has uncovered and clearly presented the Old Testament background need to flesh out our understanding of Matthew's Gospel. The result is a better understanding of Jesus' life and mission - and ours."
- Stacy Mitch, Author, Courageous Love: A Bible Study on Holiness for Women

"In today's proliferation of easily forgotten 'mission statements,' it is exciting to read about a mission that really matters - Jesus' saving mission. Professor Sri's new book not only makes the Lord's mission electrifyingly clear; it shows how the kingdom is at its heart. Mystery of the Kingdom offers a fresh, fascinating, and truly spiritual insight into Matthew's Gospel."
- Most Rev. James P. Keleher, Archbishop of Kansas City, Kansas

Edward Sri is assistant professor of religious studies at Benedictine College in Atchison, Kansas. He holds a license in sacred theology from the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas in Rome. He also is a campus director for the Fellowship of Catholic University Students and co-author of Catholic for a Reason: Scripture and the Mystery of the Family of God.

St. Matthew

Feast Day:
Roman Rite Calendar - 09/21

Patron Of: Accounts, Bankers, Bookkeepers, Stockbrokers, Tax Collectors

Son of Alphaeus, he lived at Capenaum on Lake Genesareth. He was a Roman tax collector, a position equated with collaboration with the enemy by those from whom he collected taxes. Jesus' contemporaries were surprised to see the Christ with a traitor, but Jesus explained that he had come "not to call the just, but sinners."

Matthew's Gospel is given pride of place in the canon of the New Testament, and was written to convince Jewish readers that their anticipated Messiah had come in the person of Jesus. He preached among the Jews for 15 years; his audiences may have included the Jewish enclave in Ethiopia, and places in the East.
