For the first time in his preaching ministry, Chuck Swindoll presents a comprehensive verse-by-verse study through the Gospel According to Matthew. Follow the life of Christ, from His birth to His Great Commission.
The King's Arrival: A Study of Matthew 1-7
In the first seven chapters of the gospel of Matthew, we immediately perceive how Jesus is no normal king from the annals of history. From His messianic genealogy and the miraculous conception to His commissioning baptism, victory over Satan’s temptations, and authoritative teaching—everything about the beginning of Jesus’ earthly life shouts, “God has arrived!” If Jesus’ arrival teaches us anything, it teaches us that God does not forget His promises.
Spark a fire in your faith with this first of four volumes of Pastor Chuck Swindoll’s series on Matthew’s gospel. Get ready to meet your King!
The first few pages in the New Testament contain a list of complicated names. Matthew’s account sounds more like a phone directory than the genealogy of Jesus!
Chuck Swindoll presents the storyline of Jesus’ birth in a manner you’ve likely never heard before. Although many of the specific details are familiar to us, Chuck will help us see the powerful backstory of the first Christmas that’s not as obvious or well known.
Our population has heard the Christmas story so many times that all too often the facts are entirely misconstrued. Chuck Swindoll debunks some of those common notions in a message based entirely on the biblical record.
God does not lead His children through superstition. So, believing that’s true, just how does God speak to us about His will? Chuck Swindoll demonstrates the biblical model through a message about Joseph and Mary.
John the Baptist was odd. He wore clothes made of camel hair and his diet included locusts and wild honey. So what do we make of this eccentric personality? Be sure to listen when Chuck Swindoll describes this strange preacher and his strong proclamation.
When John the Baptist appeared on the scene to introduce Jesus, he didn’t charm his audience with a message filled with rainbows and sunshine. Frankly, John was brash and insulting! Why did this biblical prophet come across so hostile and angry?
Listen in to learn how Jesus passed the test and let His example give you wisdom and strength for those times when Satan puts you to the test.
After acing Satan’s test, Jesus began His ministry heralding the exact words John heralded…“Repent of your sins and turn to God, for the Kingdom of Heaven is near." Join Pastor Chuck Swindoll as he explores where and how the public ministry of King Jesus began.
Pastor Chuck Swindoll shares how the kingdom shatters religious hypocrisy and performance while centring on the King Himself who unfolds the path to true happiness, effective living, and intimacy with God.
We all desire happiness. We search for it in different ways, pursuing wealth, relationships, or hobbies. But what’s the secret to lasting joy, especially the kind that isn’t swayed by circumstances?
In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus instructed His followers to be like two everyday objects, salt and light. But what does that mean and how do we live it out?
Tragically, millions of church attenders have come to the conclusion that the Bible is nothing more than a manual for good behaviour, and those that follow the rules will experience a reward. Listen in as Chuck Swindoll challenges this common belief.
Sometimes we tend to think of our personal flaws as harmless character traits. And yet, in His radical Sermon on the Mount, Jesus showed us that even our “little sins” have fatal consequences. Be sure to listen as Chuck Swindoll describes God’s solution to our hopeless condition in today's Insight for Living.
In His renowned Sermon on the Mount, Jesus delivered a stern warning to those who fail on matters of purity, fidelity, and honesty. It’s a wake-up call to anyone who’s become indifferent toward the upholding truth. Don’t miss Chuck Swindoll’s convicting message about honesty and fidelity today on Insight for Living.
We live in an age where retaliation is deemed a personal right. And yet, Jesus taught us the value of “turning a cheek” to those who offend us. Hear Chuck Swindoll explain what that surprising statement means, and what it doesn’t mean, when you listen to today's Insight for Living.

Preaching on Matthew 7:1–5, Pastor Chuck Swindoll directs our attention to Jesus’ teaching on judging to help us rid ourselves of a biting, critical spirit so we can truly restore others in a spirit of love and acceptance.
Not everyone is ready to hear spiritual truth, so we need to discern our audience. All people share divinely endowed dignity, so we should do to others as we would have them do to us.
Jesus couldn’t have cared less about being politically correct at the expense of spiritual truth, and His statements in Matthew 7:13–23 reveal just that!
