Judgment and the wrath of God are prominent themes in Matthew's Gospel—themes that have often been read in terms of God's rejection of Israel, with catastrophic results.
Through careful study of Matthew's composition and comparison with contemporary Jewish literature, Anders Runesson's Divine Wrath and Salvation in Matthew: The Narrative World of the First Gospel sets out to show that the theme of divine judgment plays very differnt and distinct roles for the diverse groups of Jews (including Jesus' disciples) and non-Jews in this first Gospel. Runesson's groundbreaking and creative approach to reading Matthew in its first-century Jewish context reveals that the criteria of judgment are not always what Christian readers have assumed. The results and implications for our historical understanding of Christian origins and our theological estimation of Matthew's place in that story that will be of vital interest to scholars and students for years to come.
