Description : A cultural and anthropological interpretation of Mark and Matthew which examines their contribution to the formation of early Christian identity, world-view and ethos. John Riches studies the notions of sacred space and ethnicity in the Gospel narratives. He shows how early Christian group identity emerged through a dynamic process of reshaping traditional Jewish symbols and motifs associated with descent, kinship and territory. Ideas about descent from Abraham and the return from exile to Mount Zion are interwoven into early Christian traditions about Jesus and in the process substantially reshaped to produce different senses of identity. At the same time, he argues, the Evangelists were attempting to set forth a view of the world in a dialogue with the two opposing cosmologies current in Jewish culture of the time: one, cosmic dualist, the other, forensic. Riches shows how these two very different accounts of the irigin and final overcoming of evil both inform Mark and Latthew's narratives and contribute to the richness and ambiguity of the texts and of the communities which sprang up around them.

Description : Akiva Cohen investigates the general research question: how do the authors of religious texts reconstruct their community identity and ethos in the absence of their central cult? His particular socio-historical focus of this more general question is: how do the respective authors of the Gospel according to Matthew, and the editor(s) of the Mishnah redefine their group identities following the destruction of the Second Temple? Cohen further examines how, after the Destruction, both the Matthean and the Mishnaic communities found and articulated their renewed community bearings and a new sense of vision through each of their respective author/redactor's foundational texts. The context of this study is thus that of an inner-Jewish phenomenon; two Jewish groups seeking to (re-)establish their community identity and ethos without the physical temple that had been the cultic center of their cosmos.

Description : "This thesis argues that the Gospel of Mathew constructs a Jewish-Christian reading culture around the Jewish scriptures and teachings of Jesus. A reading culture is the product of reading texts that are perceived to have sociocultural dimension for the self-identity of a group. Once established, reading cultures inform the group and individual behavior for future reading events, or acts of reading. Scholars have begun to identify early Christian groups as participating in the reading and writing practices of ancient Mediterranean reading cultures with the belief that the NT Gospels provide such foundational sociocultural texts. This thesis will consider common features used among literary texts for the construction of a reading culture in order to examine the constructed identity around the Gospel of Matthew."--Abstract.

Description : Identity: My Life of Faith Bible Study Kit includes a Bible Study Book and DVD with six short teaching videos, promotional videos, and promotional tools such as PowerPoint(R) slides, web banners, and leader articles. Kit also includes leader's guide with commentary. This six-session study supplies insights in response to the important question, "Who are you?" People define themselves by their role in a family, the work they do, their family history, or their interests and passions. For followers of Jesus, identity is wrapped up in who Jesus is--and His lordship over our lives. Every other facet of life--who we are and what we do--begins and ends with Jesus. As believers, we never lose our uniqueness in our various roles, but those roles are transformed by our life of faith--our true, defining identity. Following Christ means following Him to the cross and dying to self. Believers set aside self-interests, often going out of our way to help others. This is because spiritual growth is integrally tied to relationships between believers and serving others. Service to others will become second nature to a mature believer. This may require stepping out of your comfort zone, but it is one of the most effective ways to bring the message of Christ to others. No matter what cultural or even physical differences there may be between believers, we become closer as the family of God when we serve one another. Believers fuel the spiritual growth of others when we love and treat others as we would Jesus. When believers carry out our family roles as commanded by God, we strengthen our families. And, how we serve our families, carry out our work, and live out our faith is a strong, consistent witness of our relationship to Jesus Christ. Session titles and Scriptures: 1. Life in Christ (Luke 9:18-26) 2. Life in the Church (1 Peter 4:7-11) 3. Life at Home (Ephesians 5:22-28; 6:1-3) 4. Life at Work (Colossians 3:22-4:1) 5. Life in the Community (Matthew 25:34-40) 6. Life on Mission (1 Corinthians 9:19-27) Kit Includes: - Bible Study Book - 1 DVD-ROM Features: - Teaching videos - Biblically rooted and gospel-centered content - Leader material (guides to questions with optional questions and activities, general leadership, etc.) - Life application-based, topical studies - Streamlined experience - Commentary and word study - Leadership articles available in the Leader Kit - Sermon outlines available at http: //blog.lifeway.com/biblestudiesforlife/pastors/ Benefits: - Understand that "dying to self" can mean setting aside self-interests and allowing Christ in you to serve others. - See how embracing service to others can become second nature to mature believers. - Strengthen your witness. - Develop stronger relationships with other believers. - Apply the truth that real meaning and lasting purpose result from grounding your life in Christ. - Learn that serving the body of Christ means serving the church. - See how love and hospitality grow from acts of service. - Get biblical insight for your life...today. - Develop leaders to be fearless and unashamed to serve Christ. - See that self-discipline and self-denial result from stepping into the shoes of others to share Christ.

Description : In this work, Joshua Leim attempts to bring greater clarity to the articulation of Jesus' identity in Matthew by attending more precisely to two linguistic patterns woven deeply into the entire narrative's presentation of Jesus: Matthew's christological use of "worship/obeisance" language (proskyneo) and his paternal-filial idiom. Along with exploring the role these linguistic patterns play in the narrative, the author attempts to hear such language in relation to early Judaism and its articulation of the identity of the God of Israel. The study of these various elements yields the conclusion that the identity of God and Jesus Christ are inseparably related in Matthew's Gospel. Matthew articulates the identity of Israel's God around the Father-Son relation.

Description : The Gospel of Matthew opens with a patrilineal genealogy of Jesus that intriguingly includes five women: Tamar, Rahab, Ruth, "she of Uriah," and Mary. In a gospel that has a strongly Jewish and male-orientated outlook, why are women incorporated? In particular, why include these four Old Testament women alongside Mary? Rejecting traditional as well as feminist views, Anne Clements undertakes a close literary reading of the narratives to discern how each woman is characterized and presented. All are significant scriptural figures on the margins of Israelite society. From this intertextual world established by Matthew, Clements explores why Matthew may have named these women in the opening genealogy and what implications their inclusion may have for the ongoing gospel narrative. Mothers on the Margin? argues that Matthew's Gospel contains a counter narrative focused on women. The presence of the five women in the genealogy indicates that the birth of the Messiah will bring about a crisis in Israel's identity in terms of ethnicity, marginality, and gender. The women signal that Matthew's Gospel is concerned with the construal of a new identity for the people of God.

Description : The Gospel of Matthew carries important lessons on the formation of community and of Jesus as authoritative Teacher--lessons that helped the early Matthean population relate to both the Jewish and Christian communities of which they were composed. The Gospel According to Matthew provides Gospel text (New American Bible translation) along with Barbara E. Reid's commentary, to aid in the interpretation and use of this Gospel today. As Reid demonstrates, this Gospel continues to bring Vision and hope to Christians throughout the ages. Reid stresses the importance of the Gospel of Matthew as the first book in the New Testament, possibly the first written Gospel, and the one most often used in the early church. Providing both the text and commentary, Reid addresses important questions such as the author's identity and sources, setting and Gospel translation. Sections are The Origins of Jesus (1:1-4:11)," "The Beginnings of the Galilean Ministry (4:12-10:42)," "The Sermon on the Mount (5:1-7:28)," "Varying Responses to Jesus(11:1-16:12)," "Jesus and His Disciples on the Way to Jerusalem (16:14- 20:34)," "Jerusalem; Jesus' Final Days of Teaching in the Temple (21:1-28:15)," "Finale: Back to Galilee; Commission to the Whole World; Jesus' Abiding Presence (28:16-20)." Also includes discussion questions. Barbara E. Reid, OP, PhD, is professor of New Testament at Catholic Theological Union in Chicago. She is the author of Parables for Preachers, Choosing the Better Part?, and co-editor of the Collegeville Pastoral Dictionary of Biblical Theology, published by Liturgical Press. She has also published various journal articles on New Testament topics. Also available with Little Rock Scripture Study Set: The Gospel According to Matthew "

Description : Behold the Christ: Proclaiming the Gospel of Matthew, by Leroy A. Huizenga, reveals the significance of St. Matthew’s Jesus: He is Emmanuel, God with us always, who saves his people from their sins by dying for them. In showing how Jesus fulfilled the Old Testament, gave us a way to live, and taught us how to follow the narrow way to the kingdom of heaven, St. Matthew modeled the fourfold way of reading Scripture according to letter and spirit. Above all, St. Matthew’s Gospel presents Jesus Christ founding the Catholic Church as a robust, rigorous religion with rich rituals, chiefly the sacrificial Eucharist as sustenance on the narrow way to heaven. Jesus demands much of his Church, but the same Jesus who commands his Church also promises and delivers much—above all, himself. Keyed to the lectionary and featuring a section on the relevance of St. Matthew’s Gospel for our contemporary age, Behold the Christ will make the Gospel and indeed the Faith real to today’s readers.

Description : The third and final installment of James Dunn's magisterial history of Christian origins through 190 C.E., Neither Jew nor Greek: A Contested Identity covers the period after the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 C.E. through the second century, when the still-new Jesus movement firmed up its distinctive identity markers and the structures on which it would establish its growing appeal in the following decades and centuries. Dunn examines in depth the major factors that shaped first-generation Christianity and beyond, exploring the parting of the ways between Christianity and Judaism, the Hellenization of Christianity, and responses to Gnosticism. He mines all the first- and second-century sources, including the New Testament Gospels, New Testament apocrypha, and such church fathers as Ignatius, Justin Martyr, and Irenaeus, showing how the Jesus tradition and the figures of James, Paul, Peter, and John were still esteemed influences but were also the subject of intense controversy as the early church wrestled with its evolving identity. Comprehensively covering an important, complex era in Christianity that is often overlooked, this volume is a landmark contribution to the field.

Description : What Christian would not want to hear Mark's gospel as the first believers heard it? Using the tools of modern scholarship, Peter's Last Sermon takes seriously Mark's audience. The community would have heard rather than read the gospel. It would have encountered the story as a whole instead of piecemeal in short texts for sermons. Missing would have been the static of Matthew, Luke, and John. As for the speaker? While most modern scholars table the question of authorship, the postapostolic writers of the second and third centuries claim with one voice that (though penned by Mark) the gospel actually went back to Peter. So to hear the gospel as did those early Christians was to hear it as if coming from him. Does it make a difference to our understanding of Mark's message if from Peter? Yes. And the result is surprising. Peter's Last Sermon takes us on a journey through Roman and Jewish texts to meet the Jesus not of the modern Church but of Peter's proclamation in Rome. Nero's persecution had left the community in crisis. What was Peter's message for his time? Christ was different from expected, he said, but how? James Dawsey shows that Christ broke the messianic expectations of his Galilean followers and the Jerusalem religious elite of his day. And as the reader of Peter's Last Sermon will see, he surprised Mark's hearers a generation later. The Gospel of Mark still confronts us in new ways.

Description : The Gospel of Matthew is an oeuvre mouvante (a work in process), and the dynamics of this process are essential to its identity and function. This understanding of the Gospel of Matthew stands in distinction from the long history of research centered on Matthew the author and his design for the gospel. Focused instead on tradition history-the history of composition and transmission-Edwin K. Broadhead's approach keeps open the dialectical engagements and the conflicting voices intrinsic to the Gospel of Matthew. As a result, the consistently Jewish textures of this gospel are emphasized, there is a broader engagement with the landscape of antiquity, and serious attention is given to further developments in the history of transmission. This focus on the developing tradition thus highlights, rather than suppresses, the viability and the generative potential of such discourses.

Description : How To Discover Your True Self Identity Now revised and republished as Your True Self Identity: How Familiar Bible Translations Hide Your True Identity From You Do you know your true self identity? Are you happy being who you are? If you are not happy, what if the real cause of your unhappiness is that you don't really know your true identity? But how is it possible that you don't know your true self identity? One powerful reason is the effect of misleading translations of the Christian Bible. Misleading Bible translations are the focus of True Self Identity Scandal: The Bible Translation Scandal In The Gospel Of Matthew That Hides Your True Identity From You. Does The Bible Really Say That? This book is part of the Does The Bible Really Say That? Series. The purpose of the series is to show Bible readers the effect of Bible translations on Bible stories. Original meanings often get lost in translation and replaced by interpretations that have little to do with the original meanings and intentions of Bible stories. What Is The True Self Identity Scandal? True Self Identity Scandal is about a particular type of identity theft. This particular identity theft involves use of Christian sin and salvation doctrines to identify everyone as guilty and forgiveness of sin as the only remedy. The basic purpose of True Self Identity Scandal is to show you that much of what the Christian church claims to be true about your identity is based on theological doctrines based on religions in the Greco-Roman world rather than anything the Bible actually says. The Translation Scandal In Matthew 18:6 The most specific example of identity theft is a small translation change in Matthew 18:6 that creates a "scandal" for the innocent and a false identity for Christian Bible readers. The actual meaning of "scandal" is a critical insight to show you the difference between your true self identity and your false identity created by Bad Bible translations. What Is In True Self Identity Scandal? True Self Identity Scandal includes 27 Chapters organized into 8 Parts. Parts Are: Part One: Original Sin And Your Identity Part Two: Your Name And Your Identity Part Three: The Bible And Your Identity Part Four: Mirrors Of Your Identity Part Five: The Identity Of Jesus In Matthew Part Six: Identity Questions Of The Hero Part Seven: Identities Of Those Who Trap Little Ones Part Eight: Freedom To Become Your True Self The book also includes a Prologue and Postlogue about a familiar story about happiness and true self identity and a Foreword by renowned persuasion expert, Dave Lakhani.

Description : Annotation. Arguing that crowds in the Gospel of Matthew serve as a theological entity that represent the people of Israel (as opposed to their leaders), Cousland (classical, Near Eastern, and religious studies, U. of British Columbia, Canada) explores how this representation sheds light on Matthew's relationship to Judaism. Although Matthew had broken with Jewish leadership, he still had hopes of converting the Jewish people to Christianity and this tension was displayed in the ambivalent manner in which crowds were portrayed in the gospel.

Description : This thesis examines some of the ways that the narrative of the Gospel of Matthew functions rhetorically, within the context of a broader first-century Jewish-Christian discourse of identity, to construct insider identity--i.e., to construct disciples--in relation to non-Jews. The focus, in particular, is on two key tensions regarding non-Jews in the narrative context of the gospel: 1) the tension between the negative stereotypical ''Gentiles'' of Jesus discourse and the very positive portrayal of some Gentile characters in the narrative; and 2) the tension between the two commissions of Jesus to his disciples, between his first command to "go nowhere among the Gentiles" (Matt 10:5) and his final command to "make disciples of all nations" (28:19). I argue, through my analysis of these two tensions within the narrative context of the gospel, that the Gospel of Matthew's narration of the life of Jesus functions for the narrative's implied reader as more (though certainly not less) than an etiology of Gentile inclusion; beyond explaining and defending the presence of non-Jews within the ekklēsia, the gospel itself forges an insider identity that includes people of ta ethnē, and it does this in part by negotiating the categories of ethnikoi/ethnē and mathētai/ekklēsia in relation to each other.

Description : Known as a scribe, minor tax collector and public sinner, Matthew sought to create an identity for the fledgling Christian community as it struggled against persecution by the Romans and ostracism by the Jewish leadership. In her new book, well-known author and master storyteller Megan McKenna shows how this identity is forged of forgiveness, reconciliation and atonement. What characterizes Matthew’s church is Jesus as the Mercy of God, as mercy shared. “Matthew's community becomes the presence of the kingdom of heaven on earth — the presence of God's mercy on earth.” In this masterful commentary, McKenna shows that, as it did for that early Jewish community of Christians, Matthew's gospel offers balm and hope for the Church today.

While Mark’s Jesus may be the most human, Matthew was most interested in the human story of Jesus among the Gospel authors. This narrative critical examination of Matthew’s portrait prioritizes the human element of Jesus’s story. He purposely balances the human and transcendent so that he can reinforce the reader’s belief in Jesus and hope that Jesus’s life can be imitated.
