Product Description

The original audience of the Gospel of Matthew was Jewish converts who were wrestling with how to be faithful to Jesus Christ in a changing world and under difficult circumstances. The Gospel of Matthew became a first-aid manual for this church in the midst of a struggle. Thomas Long identifies this first audience and its faith within the social and religious context of the day and clarifies the structure of the Gospel. Providing examples of contemporary significance, Long helps today's reader discern the significance of this guide for faithful living in today's church. Ideal for individual study and for Bible study classes and groups.
