“When he had called together all the people’s chief priests and teachers of the law, he asked them where the Messiah was to be born. “In Bethlehem in Judea,” they replied, “for this is what the prophet has written: “‘But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are by no means least among the rulers of Judah; for out of you will come a ruler who will shepherd my people Israel.’””
– Matthew 2:4-6

interview with the author of Matthew 2:4-6

Interviewer: Can you tell us about the passage you wrote in Matthew 2:4-6?

Author: Sure, in that passage, I wrote about King Herod summoning the chief priests and scribes to find out where the Messiah was to be born. They told him that according to the prophet Micah, the Messiah was to be born in Bethlehem. Then Herod secretly called the wise men to find out exactly when the star had appeared. He then sent them to Bethlehem, saying, “Go and search diligently for the child; and when you have found him, bring me word so that I may also go and pay him homage.”

Interviewer: What was the significance of this passage in the larger context of your writing?

Author: This passage helps to set the stage for the coming of Jesus as the fulfillment of the prophecies of the Old Testament. It shows the reaction of King Herod and the religious leaders to the news of the birth of the Messiah, and it foreshadows the conflict and opposition that Jesus would face throughout his life.

Interviewer: Thank you for sharing that insight with us.

information about the author of Matthew 2:4-6

According to evangelical Christian belief, the most likely author of the Gospel of Matthew is the disciple Matthew, also known as Levi. He was a tax collector who was called by Jesus to become one of his twelve disciples.

In the passage Matthew 2:4-6, Matthew is recording the events surrounding the birth of Jesus and the visit of the Magi to King Herod. He is emphasizing the fulfillment of Old Testament prophecy concerning the coming of the Messiah.

Evangelical Christians believe that Matthew was inspired by the Holy Spirit to write this Gospel and that it is a reliable and authoritative account of the life, teachings, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. They view the Gospel of Matthew as one of the foundational texts of the Christian faith and consider it to be divinely inspired and inerrant. They also believe that the message of Matthew 2:4-6, like the rest of the Gospel, is relevant and applicable to believers today, pointing to Jesus as the fulfillment of prophecy and the promised savior of the world.
