Lec 7 - The Gospel of Matthew

"Lec 7 - The Gospel of Matthew" Introduction to New Testament (RLST 152) The Gospel of Matthew contains some of the most famous passages that both Christians and non-Christians are familiar with. However, Matthew also presents itself paradoxically as preaching a Torah observant Christianity and a Christian mission that seeks to reach gentiles. The figure of Jesus in Matthew is that of a teacher, the founder of the Church, and the model for the apostles and Matthew's own community. Matthew seems to be writing for a church community that needs encouragement to have faith in a time of trouble. 00:00 - Chapter 1. Matthew: The Most Famous Gospel 12:29 - Chapter 2.
