Matthew the organized tax collector became Matthew the inspired historian, but in the first book of the New Testament there is still an organized structure, as the Holy Spirit inspired him to record facts, followed by a teaching on these facts, followed by a transitional phrase marked by the words, “and it came to pass.” The structure looks like this:

The Facts                   The Lesson                      The Transitional Phrase

Matthew 1-4             Matthew 5-7                     Matthew 7:28

Matthew 8-9            Matthew 9-10                    Matthew 11:1

Matthew 11-12         Matthew 13                        Matthew 13:53

Matthew 14-17        Matthew 18                        Matthew 19:1

Matthew 19-23        Matthew 24-25                  Matthew 26:1
