Matthew is the new Genesis
Matthew is the new Genesis. We read about the new creation, the new life, and the new Moses (Jesus), the new law giver, and the new law (beatitudes).
Matthew starts of his Gospel with the words, the book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ. The word here “genealogy” is the same word for “genesis”. We could translate this as the Genesis of Jesus Christ. Here we find an allusion to the old testament book of Genesis.
