A little background :
The book of Matthew is one of the Bible's four Gospels (along with Mark, Luke and John) - the narrative accounts of the "good news" (gospel). The Gospels are called narratives because they are four separate repots or accounts of the same true story of what happened in, to and through the life of Jesus Christ. The Gospel according to Matthew is quite fitting as an introduction to the New Testament and to "the Christ, the Son of the living God" (Matthew 16:16). Although the author is not identified by name in the Biblical text, the testimony of all early church leaders (beginning around A.D. 130) is that Matthew, one of Jesus' original twelve disciples, wrote this Gospel.
Outline for week one
At the time when Christ was born, Israel had been conquered by the Romans and they really oppressed the people. They had a cruel taxing system that they put on countries that they conquered. They had a poll tax, which is like our income tax, the other was called the ground tax, which would be similar to a property or land tax. Some of the wealthy Romans would hire people they called Publicans or tax collectors to do the actual tax collecting. The problem was these tax collectors usually didn't collect for the Romans, they lined their pockets as well.
