Description

This course will undertake a careful exegetical study of Matthew in an attempt to:

  1. Master the basic content of the gospel through the application of sound exegetical method,
  2. Note Matthew's emphases vis-a-vis the other Synoptics, and
  3. Address some of the hermeneutical issues concerning its significance in the modern world.
    Given the sheer size of the book some selectivity will be necessary. A secondary concern will be to acquaint students with a number of the critical issues relating to the scholarly study of Matthew. Some familiarity with NT Greek will prove advantageous but is not required

Lectures include:

  • Introduction: Matthew in the Synoptics, His World, Authorship, and Structure
  • Genealogy and Birth Narratives
  • Beginnings: John and Jesus
  • Sermon on the Mount, Part I
  • Sermon on the Mount, Part II
  • Ten Mighty Deeds
  • Mission
  • Rising Opposition
  • Parables
  • Opposition, Response, and the Cross
  • Life in the New Community
  • The Way to Jerusalem
  • From Blessing to Curse and Vindication
  • The Passion, Resurrection, and Beyond
