    Matthew was one of the 12 apostles who made up Jesus Christ's public ministry on earth. The purpose of the book is to prove to readers that Jesus is the true Messiah who fulfills the messianic prophecies found in the Old Testament. Of the four gospels, the Gospel of Matthew is the longest, with 28 chapters. With Matthew being written to strengthen commitment to the Law, and Luke being possibly written as an apologetic defense book for the persecuted, it’s interesting to notice how the Sermon on the Mount in Matthew takes adultery to lust and murder to hatred, while Luke’s version ignores those commands and presents its sermon through the lens.

    The Gospel of Matthew was written by a publican whom the Lord Jesus had put His hand upon in a very definite way (see Matt. ). He was a follower, a disciple, of the Lord Jesus. Papias says, Eusebius confirms, and other of the apostolic fathers agree, that this Gospel was written originally by Matthew in Hebrew for the nation Israel, a. Harrington.

I would like to make a few comments about Matthew’s community. In his published dissertation, “Community, Law, and Mission in Matthew’s Gospel,” Paul Foster describes an emerging “new consensus” in New Testament studies concerning the social identity of Matthew’s community.

The Gospel According to Matthew is the first book of the And mission in Matthews Gospel book Testament and one of the three synoptic tells how Israel's Messiah, rejected and executed in Israel, pronounces judgement on Israel and its leaders and becomes the salvation of the gentiles.

The gospel reflects the struggles and conflicts between the evangelist's community and the other Jews, particularly with its sharp. typically think of the Gospel of Matthew as well. Again, the reason is clear. The Gospel of Matthew is a veritable handbook for life together in a Christian commu-nity that is nurtured through ministries of preaching, teaching, sacraments, and discipline.

There is a beautiful symmetry of mission and ministry in the first gospel. The Gospel of Matthew contains five long speeches (discourses) of Jesus.

Many Bible scholars organize the Gospel around these speeches. However, it is important to note that four out of the five speeches occur during Jesus’ ministry in Galilee, before he. In Matthew's gospel, Jesus delivers five major speeches, which parallel the five great books of Moses known as the Pentateuch.

The first and most important of Jesus' speeches is the Sermon on the. the community Gospel of Mark: Some time af the Gospel of Mark arrived in the Matthean community, was accepted as part of the community’s own sacred tradition, and was used in its life and worship.

Matthew’s own material: Matthew’s Gospel contains the first use of the term “church” to describe a community of believers. The Gospel according to Matthew is the opening book of the New Testament of the Bible, and the first of the Four Gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke, and four Gospels are followed by the Acts of the Apostles, the Letters of Paul beginning with Romans, the catholic or universal letters beginning with James, and the Book of Revelation.

The Gospel of St. Matthew is one of the most quoted books. The first discourse (Matthew ) is called the Sermon on the Mount and is one of the best known and most quoted parts of the New Testament. It includes the Beatitudes and the Lord's most believers in Jesus, the Sermon on the Mount contains the central tenets of Christian discipleship.

The Beatitudes are a key element of this sermon, and are expressed as a set of blessings. The Gospel of Matthew by R. France ISBN page 9 Google-books link; The Gospel of Matthew by Craig S. Keener ISBN pages ; Preaching Matthew’s Gospel by Richard A.

Jensen ISBN pages 25 & THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO MATTHEW. The position of the Gospel according to Matthew as the first of the four gospels in the New Testament reflects both the view that it was the first to be written, a view that goes back to the late second century A.D., and the esteem in which it was held by the church; no other was so frequently quoted in the noncanonical literature of earliest Christianity.

This Gospel is written by Matthew most likely in Antioch Syria sometime around AD. Antioch was one of the first centers of outreach to the gentile world. Although the primary audience of this Gospel is Jewish Christians who were being severely persecuted.

conclusion of the gospel, Matthew has constructed a gospel that will equip the disciples in the making of disciples (Wilkins ). This paper will explore the gospel of Matthew to understand in just what way this New Testament book can yield principles on discipleship.

The first chapter will contrast the. The Gospel of Matthew is concerned with the position of these early Christian churches within Israel, or in its relationship to what we call Judaism. And these are concerns that belong to the time.

Matthew’s Gospel is focused on explaining what the gospel is and how it should be applied in the lives of Jesus’ disciples. For Matthew, the gospel is the good news that God has inaugurated the final stage of his plan to reclaim the world from the destruction of sin and establish his just and merciful reign over it (Matt.

; ; ). In addition, Matthew saw Jesus as the fulfillment of the Law by emphasizing God's original purpose for marriage (Matthew ); by stressing self-denial, not obedience to rules, as the basis of discipleship (Matthew); and by accepting his personal death as the means by which He ultimately removed the Mosaic system (Matthew.

Matthew’s gospel is one of the New Testament books often alleged to be responsible for the development of anti-semitism.

Australian theologian Dorothy Lee examines Matthew’s gospel in order to see if this allegation is justified. She makes the point that Matthew’s gospel is at once the most pro-Jewish of the gospels and the most anti-Jewish.

The Gospel of Matthew is actually called the Gospel "According to" Matthew. This is Matthew's chance to give his unique perspective to the tale of Jesus' life, death, and resurrection. While the book possesses the same skeleton as the other gospels (Mark, Luke, and John), it offers its own unique view of Jesus.
