The Gospel of Matthew contains five long speeches (discourses) of Jesus. Many Bible scholars organize the Gospel around these speeches. However, it is important to note that four out of the five speeches occur during Jesus’ ministry in Galilee, before he travels south to enter the city of Jerusalem.
I made sure to capture each discourse as one single page in A Cartoonist’s Guide to Matthew. The artwork inside of the discourse bubble is different than the the style that depicts Jesus’ actions. This helps the reader to know that the stories Jesus tells are for a different purpose than the stories about Jesus that Matthew tells.
