Chapter Summary

Among this chapter's important ordination sermons is a short series from Isaac Foster based on the Gospel of Matthew, chapter 18, verse 3. The New Geneva Study Bible frames the Gospel of Matthew within the context of the other Synoptic Gospels of Mark and Luke, and states that together with John, "they offer Jesus Christ, the incarnate Word, to all generations". The relationship of the Old and New Testaments was critical to the Puritans since they based so much of their mission to New England on New Testament fulfillment of Old Testament covenant principles and prophecy.
