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.
