pp. 1-16

When considering the theological concept that guided Matthew in retelling the story of Jesus, the question of the relationship between 10.6 and 28.19 arises as a central interpretive problem.

2. The Focus on Israel in the Ministry of Jesus and His Disciples

pdf iconDownload PDF

pp. 17-88

pp. 327-354

Several aspects relevant to identifying the relationship between Israel and the Church have already been addressed in the preceding chapters and need only be brought together here. At the same time, the thesis that Matthew does not support a condemnation of Israel must prove itself in the course of further...

pp. 355-368

In attempting— with all the caution required in drawing conclusions from narrative texts¹— to derive the historical situation of the Matthean community² from the narrative and theological concept of the Gospel,³ one can begin by pointing to the “major consensus” established in current...

8. Summary

pp. 369-380

In investigating the intellectual- historical context that characterizes Matthew’s theological thought, the fundamental significance of Israel’s theological tradition emerges in the Gospel from beginning to end. This can be seen not only in that Matthew retells the Jesus story with continuous...
