The Book of Matthew, The Structure of The Book As A Whole
Matthew 18:1 At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the
greatest in the kingdom of heaven?
2 And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,

them in remembrance, charging them before the Lord that they
strive not about words to no profit, but to the subverting of

6 But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were
better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were
drowned in the depth of the sea.
7 Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences
come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!

of God's children.

8 Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them
from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than
having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire.
9 And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is
better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to
be cast into hell fire.
God would never won't you to hurt your body
Your body makes up the church, many parts
If there is a group let's say the feet if
they are teaching falsely separate yourself
10 Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you,
That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in
Eye = seer = prophet

12 How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray,
doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh
that which is gone astray?
13 And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of
that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray.
An hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray
14 Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of
these little ones should perish.
The ninety and nine which went not astray
If one of your members goes astray, go and help
5 Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault
between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.
It's God's will that all follow God's Word and
16 But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in
the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.
This has to do with legal things
If your brother ask for money and he doesn't pay
17 And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he
neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a
18 Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in
heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any
thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in
Ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven
Whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be
loosed in heaven

Revelation 14:13 And I heard a voice from heaven
saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from
henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours;
and their works do follow them.
20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the
midst of them.
21 Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against
me, and I forgive him? till seven times?
22 Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until
seventy times seven.
23 Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain king, which would
take account of his servants.
24 And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him, which owed him ten
25 But forasmuch as he had not to pay, his lord commanded him to be sold, and
his wife, and children, and all that he had, and payment to be made.
26 The servant therefore fell down, and worshipped him, saying, Lord, have
patience with me, and I will pay thee all.
27 Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion, and loosed him, and
forgave him the debt.
28 But the same servant went out, and found one of his fellow servants, which

30 And he would not: but went and cast him into prison, till he should pay the
31 So when his fellow servants saw what was done, they were very sorry, and came
and told unto their lord all that was done.
He put him in prison, back up verse 24
32 Then his lord, after that he had called him, said unto him, O thou wicked
servant, I forgave thee all that debt, because thou desiredst me:
33 Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellow servant, even as I
had pity on thee?
34 And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should
pay all that was due unto him.
35 So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts
forgive not every one his brother their trespasses.
God forgive us and we should forgive other
• Exactly 2520 years from the exile
of Benjamin, Iceland became an independent nation.
The first tribe to be
conquered by the Assyrians was Manasseh,
in 745 B.C. Exactly 2520 years later America became a nation on July 4, 1776.
(Leviticus. 26: 28-46) God warned Israel that if they persisted in continually
breaking His Laws, not only would curses come upon them.
He would punish them for seven times, (a time being 360 years, seven times would
be 2520 years) and would banish them from the land of Palestine and scatter them
among the heathens (like lost sheep)
