The Gospel of Matthew
This course presents an approach to the study of Matthew’s Gospel, with an emphasis on literary analysis, intertextuality vis-à-vis the Jewish Scriptures, theological reflection, and integration to life and ministry. We seek to grasp the basic content and message of this Gospel, to discern Matthew’s emphases vis-à-vis the other Synoptics, and especially to probe deeply his witness to Jesus, so that we might understand and live the gospel calling of Jesus more effectively.
There are no prerequisites for this course.
This course is also offered at the 600-level (BIBL 651) with modified assignments.
