Item description for Matthew in the Messianic Tradition by Morris Inch...
Among the fundamental tenets of Judaism is the conviction that the Messiah will redeem his people and usher in shalom (peace, well-being). Initiated in the Old Testament, this tradition winds its way through a variety of canonical and non-canonical sources with the Gospel of Matthew serving as a prime example. Morris Inch's new work casts the narrative of Matthew in terms of this vibrant Messianic tradition in an effort to gain fresh insights, explore ambiguous elements, and recognize unique contributions. Matthew in the Messianic Tradition explores how the Gospel of Matthew addresses the patriarchs and prophets; the early years of Jesus' life including discussions of Messiah ben David; and Jesus' public ministry, including the kingdom of heaven, blessedness, the Torah, Son of Man, discipleship, and ingathering. This detailed analysis of the Gospel of Matthew and the Messianic tradition will be of interest to students of the New Testament, the well-educated lay-person, and pastors.
