Description : In this book, Catherine Sider Hamilton introduces a new lens through which to view the death of Jesus in Matthew. Using the concept of 'innocent blood', she situates the death of Jesus within a paradigm of purity and pollution, one that was central in the Hebrew Scriptures and early Judaism from the Second Temple to the rabbis. Hamilton traces the theme of innocent blood in Matthew's narrative in relation to two Jewish traditions of interpretation, one (in Second Temple literature) reflecting on the story of Cain and Abel; the other (chiefly in rabbinic literature) on the blood of Zechariah. 'Innocent blood' yields a vision that resists the dichotomies (intra muros vs extra muros, rejection vs redemption) that have characterized the debate, a vision in which both judgment and redemption - an end of exile - may be true. 'Innocent blood' offers a new approach not only to the meaning of Jesus' death in Matthew but also to the vexed question of the Gospel's attitude toward contemporary Judaism.

Description : In this 2006 text, Daniel M. Gurtner examines the meaning of the rending of the veil at the death of Jesus in Matthew 27:51a by considering the functions of the veil in the Old Testament and its symbolism in Second Temple and Rabbinic Judaism. Gurtner incorporates these elements into a compositional exegesis of the rending text in Matthew. He concludes that the rending of the veil is an apocalyptic assertion like the opening of heaven revealing, in part, end-time images drawn from Ezekiel 37. Moreover, when the veil is torn Matthew depicts the cessation of its function, articulating the atoning role of Christ's death which gives access to God not simply in the sense of entering the Holy of Holies (as in Hebrews), but in trademark Matthean Emmanuel Christology: 'God with us'. This underscores the significance of Jesus' atoning death in the first gospel.

Description : The objective of this book is to examine and explain one of the most controversial passages in the New Testament: Matthew 27:25, which has been traditionally used in the Christian Church to teach that the Jewish people are condemned for all time for the death of Christ. This exegetical study of Matthew 27:25 will be done within the context of the Gospel of Matthew and the broader contexts of the Old and New Testaments. The purpose for this study is to dispel and disprove the traditional anti-Semitic meaning of Matthew 27:25 that has tragically led to the unwarranted condemnation of the Jewish people for the death of Jesus Christ. Hence, the particular focus of this study will directly address and answer the perennial, theological question that asks, "Does Matthew 27:25 mean and teach the Jews are altogether condemned by God for the crucifixion of Christ?" While it is true the Jewish nation, by and large, tragically rejected Jesus at His first coming, this in no way gives Christians theological license for the wholesale hatred, persecution, and destruction of the Jews, or for holding an anti-Semitic bias against them. No where in the New Testament Scriptures is it taught that the Jewish race--past, present, and future are condemned and morally indicted as "Christ killers" for the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. This study is necessary to expose and correct the flawed interpretation of Matthew 27:25 that has historically persisted in Christendom and leads a person to build and develop an anti-Jewish theology. Factoring all this together in a careful exegesis of Matthew 27 will manifestly demonstrate that the Jewish people are not guilty of deicide and therefore arbitrarily condemned by God as a race of "Christ killers."

Description : Although most people acknowledge that Jesus was a first-century Jew, interpreters of the Gospels often present him as opposed to Jewish law and customs--especially when considering his numerous encounters with the ritually impure. Matthew Thiessen corrects this popular misconception by placing Jesus within the Judaism of his day. Thiessen demonstrates that the Gospel writers depict Jesus opposing ritual impurity itself, not the Jewish ritual purity system or the Jewish law. This fresh interpretation of significant passages from the Gospels shows that throughout his life, Jesus destroys forces of death and impurity while upholding the Jewish law.

Description : The Word of the cross is a living word, crying out for reinterpretation as life takes new shape and expression. Reinterpreting the Gospel was particularly compelling for Matthew's church because his Christians lived in a time of profound transition. The Passion of Jesus, then, was not simply a story of suffering out of the past but a point of identification for the Christians of Matthew's own time. For us twentieth-century Christians, who also know the peculiar suffering and hope of living in an age that is both dying and being born, the Passion of Jesus according to Matthew has special meaning.

Description : ". . . from expected death comes unexpected new life!" The Gospel of Matthew does not shy away from the realities of struggle, suffering, doubt, and death. Yet, from the first names in the genealogy to the last words spoken by Jesus, the Gospel testifies to the promise that from expected death comes unexpected new life. Through the actions of Tamar, Rahab, Ruth, and Bathsheba, we experience the expectation of death and the promise of unexpected new life. In the birth story of Jesus, Joseph suspects Mary of committing adultery. It is this dilemma that is the focus of the narrative. If he reveals her pregnancy, she could be killed. If he conceals her pregnancy, he will be going against the law of the Lord. What is a righteous man to do? In Joseph's dilemma, this experience of expected death, the Gospel of Matthew proclaims the promise of unexpected new life. The promise of unexpected new life is a theme that continues throughout Matthew's Gospel in the life and ministry of Jesus. The call of his disciples is a call from death to new life. The teaching of Jesus focuses on the experience of death and the promise of new life. In both healing and curing, Jesus brings unexpected new life to those who face death. But it is the death and resurrection of Jesus that is the climax of unexpected new life in the Gospel of Matthew. Even as Jesus experiences a most horrific and humiliating death in the crucifixion, death and the grave do not have the final say. In bearing witness to Jesus' resurrection, the Gospel of Matthew proclaims the magnificent promise of unexpected new life. Matthew J. Marohl invites you in these pages to read the Gospel of Matthew in a new way, from a fresh perspective. Integrating insights from the study of Mediterranean anthropology, Marohl makes the cultural world of the Gospel come alive, so that as you read Matthew again (or perhaps for the first time) you will certainly experience the powerful promise that from expected death comes unexpected new life!

Description : In this volume Father Meier explores how Matthew remodeled the form, the Christological message, and the moral demand of the gospel. Part I shows Matthew's church in crisis. It was experiencing a shift in its Christian existence: from a narrow Jewish-Christian past to a universal Gentile future. To preserve yet reinterpret the particularistic traditions of that Jewish-Christian past, Matthew drew up a model of salvation history and then reshaped the gospel message to fit it. Part II offers a mini-commentary on the whole gospel to illustrate this reshaping of the message. Pericope by pericope, Matthew presents Jesus as Son of God and Son of Man, and therefore as 'the' definitive teacher of his Church. Indeed, the nexus between Christ and his Church emerges as the outstanding characteristic of Matthew's gospel. Part III studies Matthew's construction of a unified moral vision on the basis of this connection between Christ and Church. The basic stance of Jesus and his disciples towards the Mosaic Law is one of fulfillment - a 'prophetic' fulfillment which involves at times a deepening of, at times the abrogation of, the letter of the Law.

Description : Proclamation of the crucified Messiah is always close at hand when one attempts even the most cursory articulation of the Christian faith. Viewed simultaneously as scandal and eschatological turning-point the cross of Christ is the cornerstone of Christian faith and praxis. This is not to say that the crucifixion of Jesus has at all times and all places been subjected to a single interpretation by Christian believers. Already in the dawning years of the Christian movement Jesus' disciples understood his death in numerous ways, utilizing a variety of images. This study takes as its primary points of departure the prominence of the cross-event for Christians and the variety of it interpretations. Here we seek a partial answer to the question how earliest Christianity understood the death of Jesus. Originally, this study took the form of a 1985 University of Aberdeen dissertation.

Description : Matthew's Jesus is typically described as the humble, compassionate messiah. This 2002 book argues that this is, however, only half the story. Matthew's theologically rich quotation of Isaiah 42.1–4, traditionally considered one of the four servant songs, underscores that manifest in Jesus' powerful message and deeds, particularly his healings and inclusion of the marginalized, is the justice that was thought to accompany the arrival of the kingdom of God. The study explores modifications to the text-form of the Isaianic citations, their relationship to the surrounding context, and the rhetorical force of the final form. It argues that the quotations are bi-referential, functioning on both a narrative and theological level, and also explores the issues surrounding the troublesome 'extraneous' content. It arrives at the conclusion that this citation was central to Matthew's understanding of Jesus' life and mission. All totalled, this study offers a refreshing exploration of Matthew's high, ethical Christology.

Description : Matthew’s portrait of Jesus communicates the importance of the human element of Jesus’s existence. 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.

Description : Jesus Christ said that he came to earth in order "to fulfil" "the law" and "the prophets" (Matthew 5:17). If there is one book in the New Testament that draws attention to fulfillment, it is the gospel of Matthew. Matthew alluded to or quoted seven major and minor prophets in the context of fulfilled prophecy. He also named the prophets Daniel, Elijah, Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Jonah. The life and writings of King David are in this prophetic context. At first glance, he does not appear to be a prophet. Psalms is not grouped with the prophets; neither is the record of David''s reign. Yet he said, "The Spirit of the LORD spake by me, and his word was in my tongue" (2 Samuel 23:2). Fittingly, the name David appears seventeen times in Matthew, the most of any New Testament book. Of ten quotations from the Psalms, five are recorded as fulfilled prophecies. So are two quotations from David''s reign. Jesus Christ, "the son of David," is thus the son of a prophet (Matthew 1:1). Born in the "city of David," he was chosen like David to "rule ... Israel" (Matthew 2:6; Luke 2:4, 2:11). So just what Old Testament prophecy is fulfilled in Matthew? Jesus was born of a virgin in Bethlehem (where young children were later murdered), named "Emmanuel," taken "out of Egypt," and "called a Nazarene" (Matthew 1:23, 2:15, 2:23). John the Baptist came before him "in the spirit and power of Elias" in order to "prepare ... the way of the Lord" (Matthew 3:3; Luke 1:17). Jesus brought the light of the kingdom to Galilee, "healed all that were sick," spoke in parables, and revealed the hypocrisy of the Pharisees (Matthew 8:16). His presence divided families even as he "shew[ed] judgment to the Gentiles" (12:18). Jesus rode a donkey into Jerusalem, where he received praise from "babes and sucklings" (21:16). He was "rejected" by the Pharisees and betrayed for "thirty pieces of silver," used to buy "the potter''s field"; his disciples "scattered" (21:42, 26:15, 26:31, 27:7). On the cross, Jesus asked God why he had been "forsaken," while Roman soldiers "cast lots" for his clothes (27:35, 27:46). He spent "three days and three nights in the heart of the earth" (12:40). Then Jesus rose "from the dead" (28:7). As recorded in the gospel of Matthew, in his birth, ministry, and death "the prophet of Nazareth" fulfilled nearly thirty distinct prophecies from eleven Old Testament books (Matthew 21:11). Matthew did not draw attention to every fulfilled prophecy, for example the fact that Jesus "made his grave ... with the rich in his death" (Isaiah 53:9; see Matthew 27:57-60). What he did emphasize was Jesus'' identity as the Messiah and "King of the Jews" (Matthew 2:2, 27:11, 27:29, 27:37). This phrase appears in the New Testament nearly twenty times. All four gospels use it in the passion narrative. Only in Matthew does "King of the Jews" appear in the narrative of Jesus'' birth. The writer''s message is clear: whom the Jews "crucified," the wise men "worshipped" (2:11, 27:35). The King will return one day, not to suffer but to reign. When he comes, he will separate the nations, "as a shepherd divide[s] his sheep from the goats" (Matthew 25:32). Those who showed hospitality to Jesus'' "brethren" - the hungry, thirsty, and naked; strangers and the sick; prisoners even - will "inherit the kingdom" (25:34-40). Those who did not will face "everlasting fire" (25:41-46). When Jesus comes, will we be "ready" (Matthew 24:44, 25:10)? When the King returns, will he "find faith on the earth" (Luke 18:8)? The time is short, the hour late. The trumpet blast is near (Matthew 24:31). Therefore, let us "examine" ourselves to see if we are "in the faith" (2 Corinthians 13:5). Then let us "look up" and say, with expectant hearts and "in full assurance of faith," "Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord" (Matthew 23:39; Luke 21:28; Hebrews 10:22). Christ''s "reward is with him" (Isaiah 62:11). Truly, our "redemption draweth nigh" (Luke 21:28).

Description : Matthew's two stories of sabbath controversy contain key materials on the relations between Jesus and the sabbath. Deploying both socio-historical and literary criticisms, the author concludes that for Matthew the sabbath is fulfilled by Jesus-that is to say, Jesus' redemption has fulfilled the ultimate goal for the sabbath. The christological and eschatological character of these stories is thus apparent, and Yang suggests that such an emphasis, over against the Pharisees' casuistic concerns, betrays Matthew's awareness of the danger of a legalistic tendency in sabbath observance among members of his community.

Description : The voice of Francis J Moloney, SDB, has been heard in New Testament studies for many decades. Internationally famous for his work on the Gospel of John, this volume gathers studies that demonstrate the breadth and richness of his interests, beyond that well-established enterprise. The first part of the boom is dedicated to Gospel studies, with the majority of essays focussing upon the Gospel of Mark. They reflect his long interest and his major commentary on that Gospel (2012). Studies on Matthew, Luke and John complete these reflections.

Description : The Gospel reveals that what God wants most of all is not that this world and all the people in it should function as He created them to function. What God wants most of all is relationship. He wants each of us to call Him and know Him by name as He calls each of us by name. And Jesus was God's way of revealing this.

Description : Our world is undergoing a massive cultural shift from the safety of modernity into the unknown wilderness of what is next. Christianity has been caught up in this cultural vacuum and is struggling to stay true to its calling. All that the church has held dear is now been called into question. Where does a faithful follower of Jesus turn to in such troubled times? The obvious answer is, of course, the Word of God, but it is not that simple. Much of what we have been taught and experienced as biblical teaching has been tainted with reductionist concepts, born in modernity. There is a need to reinterpret the teachings of Jesus and seek a renewed understanding of what He meant when He said, "Follow Me." This book is an attempt to call people to rethink the gospel of Matthew and hear Jesus with fresh ears. It uses devotional thoughts to help the reader reflect on what Jesus is really saying, and it provides space for the voice of the Holy Spirit to renew our minds so we can live a life worthy of our calling as Christ's ones.
