Current series - Matthew's gospel
 
The Bible Project offers two useful videos about Matthew's gospel:

"Watch our Read Scripture video on the Gospel of Matthew, which breaks down the literary design of the book and its flow of thought....  two Read Scripture videos dedicated to the Gospel of Matthew, which aims to help you see its unique contribution to the story of Jesus, but also how it works within the Bible’s overall framework."
