Product Description

This exploration of the gospel of Matthew focuses on its catechetical nature, paying special attention to the Five Discourses. David Scaer demonstrates how each discourse builds on the foundation of the previous ones to culminate in the narrative of Jesus' death and resurrection and his command to carry his teaching to "all nations."

This challenging book argues at length that the First Gospel embodies a liturgically regulated faith and that it was written above all for Jewish-Christian catechesis. Scaer's theological approach, which happily allows the Gospel to function as a whole, leads to many innovative suggestions and fresh readings. Particularly provocative (and largely convincing) is his eucharistic exegesis of large portions of the First Gospel. Hardcover, 415 pages. Concordia.

Publisher's Description

Focusing his exploration on Jesus' Five Discourses, Scaer demonstrates that Matthew was written as catechesis, a method in concert with its content and organization. The discourses summarize the message the disciples are to carry to "all nations," and each discourse builds on its predecessors to culminate in the narrative of Jesus' death and resurrection, which is the Gospel's interpretive key.
