The book of Matthew contains the most references to the word "faith" amongst the Gospels. It is also the 4th book overall in the whole Bible. It does seem like Matthew did have a theme of faith that he wanted to include in his Gospel!
Easter is around the corner. The significance of Easter for us lies in the fact that Jesus, the Son of God, came to earth and died for our sins, then rose again on the third day. This amazing act of sacrifice is a mark of God's grace that He freely gives to us.
