The Gospel of Matthew

The Gospel of Matthew Introduction In the second century A.D., the Gospel of Matthew was placed at the very beginning of the New Testament. It was believed to be the first Gospel written, though we now know that the Gospel of Mark dates earlier. Because it is the Gospel most intensely concerned with issues related to Judaism, it provides an appropriate transition from the Old Testament to the New Testament in the Christian Bible. Matthew became the most important of all Gospel texts for first-...

It is not only coherent to derive a social ethic from the Gospel, but also is imperative in order to mitigate the differences among religions which have caused followers to believe in their own absolute truth and to judge others as misguided.

Purpose of Gospel of Matthew

times imitation seems to have been important to the writer. These concerns are found in our gospel as well. Matthew begins his writing with a genealogy, in which he shows how Jesus descends from both Abraham and David. This reveals Matthew's goal, i.e., to make clear to his Jewish readers that Old Testament prophecies had been fulfilled in Jesus. We may very well characterise the gospel of Matthew as the gospel of fulfilment. The author employs no less than about fifty quotations from the Old Testament...
