/ -- A new release features an alliterative style that pastors will find especially useful in teaching and preaching. The Study of the Gospel of Matthew: Jesus Christ, the King of Kings (Redemption Press 2019) is the first volume in a three-volume series on the book of Matthew. The verse-by-verse study is written by Dr. Karry D. Wesley, the founding and current pastor of Antioch Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas. Dr. Wesley had the distinction of being the first African-American doctoral candidate at Phoenix Seminary where he earned his doctorate of ministry.
The Gospel of Matthew, volume 1 gives details of Jesus's life from His birth to resurrection, with emphasis on Messianic fulfillment. What sets this work apart is the use of an alliterative style, which provides a wealth of material for sermon preparation and sharing. Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary defines alliteration as "the repetition of initial consonant sounds in two or more neighboring words or syllables." Examples from this volume are: "the writer's statement, the wise seekers, the world's savior, the wealthy scientists, and the working shepherds."
This practical and simple overview for pastors and ministry leaders is designed to be easy to read, as well as theologically sound. Wesley's treatment of Matthew 1 through 8 is the latest of a dozen other biblical verse-by-verse studies written by Pastor Wesley, all using an alliterative style to convey each point. Pastor Wesley received his BA in religion and psychology from Bishop College in Dallas, his master of divinity from Brite Divinity School at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, and is an accomplished author of several books on Christian living along with the biblical studies.
