A Good First Book on the Evangelist Matthew Nov 30, 2007
Well its time in the lectionary cycle for the gospel of Matthew and you didn't cover it in seminary. And you have all those texts waiting for your exegesis, exposition, and explanation--and you don't know what to say or where to begin. Do you just jump straight into the commentaries? Are there some other books that might be worthwhile reading as a start? If this is the scenario in which you find yourself, France's introduction here is a marvelous book to begin to work through. The issues are presented fairly, the sum of recent scholarship is covered quickly and accurately, and the theology of the evangelist is presented as a beginning for further study. In this book France covers:
1.) Matthew as the first canonical gospel 2.) Just who was "Matthew" anyway 3.) The setting of the gospel and its literary character 4.) What do we mean by Jesus being the 'fulfillment' of Israel's hopes and dreams? 5.) The relationship between Matthew as a gospel and the people of Israel 6.) Matthew's gospel and the church (is the church the new Israel?) 7.) What does Matthew say about Jesus and how is Jesus presented in this gospel?
If you desire to be a prepared preacher when mounting the pulpit on Sunday morning this book will help in that process.
