Product Description

Matthew's Gospel is the most significant Jewish-Christian document of the New Testament. For Matthew, the story of Jesus is the underlying tale of his own community, from its initial convocation by the living Jesus to its espousal of the Gentile mission following Israel's rejection. Ulrich Luz both outlines and elucidates the contents and structure of Matthew's narrative, emphasizing its focal points: the Sermon on the Mount, the miracles, the parables, the renunciation of possessions, the Eschaton. Particular attention is drawn to Matthew's theology of judgment by works, an idea at once challenging and burdensome to Christians today and a direct outgrowth of the traumatic cleavage between the Matthean community and the Israelite majority.

Publisher's Description

Matthew's Gospel is the most significant Jewish-Christian document of the New Testament. Ulrich Luz both outlines and elucidates the story told in the Gospel, emphasizing its focal points: the Sermon on the Mount, the miracles, the renunciation of possessions, and particularly the theology of judgment by works, an idea that represents both a challenge, in its quest for a church set apart from non-Christians by deeds alone, and a burden, through its traumatic origin in the breach between Matthew's community and the Israelite majority.
