With the PublishPress Blocks plugin, the Content Display Block can display your posts. Several layouts are available including Grid, Frontpage, List, Masonry, Newspaper and Slider. Content filters include category selection, Number of post/products, column numbers and many extra.
The Frontpage option is designed to mimic a newspaper homepage. For example, you can show one leading image with four smaller stories underneath. Or you can show all the posts in a grid. This is similar to the Newspaper view, but with the Frontpage view the featured image is always behind the text.
Here is a demo of the Frontpage view in the Content Display block:
