Item Description...
Overview
The Word of the cross is a living word, crying out for reinterpretation as life takes new shape and expression. Reinterpreting the Gospel was particularly compelling for Matthew's church because his Christians lived in a time of profound transition. The Passion of Jesus, then, was not simply a story of suffering out of the past but a point of identification for the Christians of Matthew's own time. For us twentieth-century Christians, who also know the peculiar suffering and hope of living in an age that is both dying and being born, the Passion of Jesus according to Matthew has special meaning.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
An excellent resource  Jun 6, 2008
Rev. Senior has done a great work in his approach to Matthew. He presents a variety of sources and biblical interpretations and challenge them with a perfect style. Excellent!
 
Good overall  Nov 12, 2005
This book is divided into two sections. The first section sketches the normal introductory issues that current Matthaen scholarship poses. He deals with the sources and structure of the book, opting for Matthew's dependence on Q and Mark. He discusses Matthew's use of the Law and points out that if this book was originally written in Hebrew then why are the quotations of the Old Testament from the Septuagint instead of the Masorectic text.
He discusses Matthew's understanding of the Jewish Law, as well as the mission to the Gentiles. He further deals with Christology, discipleship (under which Senior who is Catholic deals with Peter), and community in Matthew.

The second section of this book gives an overview of each section in Mathew in which Senior gives the overall contours of each division. This is not a verse by verse treatment, but he looks at each section in broad sweeps. What I found somewhat disappointing is that his conclusions are not well supported and he really does not state them emphatically. This is an overview of Matthew, however, and for that it accomplishes its goal.
