Philip Mohr Posted August 2, 2022 Share Posted August 2, 2022 Title: The Gospel according to Matthew: A Commentary Author: Matthias Konradt Translator: M. Eugene Boring Publisher: Baylor University Press, 2020 Rationale: Any time top-notch German scholarship is translated into English, I consider it a huge boon. Konradt's Gospel according to Matthew provides a comprehensive interpretation of the Gospel of Matthew that draws on the best of modern research. Along with an analysis of the narrative structure, Konradt discusses the dense network of references to the Scriptures of Israel as well as the historical situation in which the Gospel was composed, namely the conflict between believers in Christ and the predominantly Pharisaic synagogue. Konradt focuses on theological topics such as the narrative unfolding of Jesus’ messianic identity as Immanuel, Son of God, and Son of David; Matthew’s understanding of discipleship and the church; the role of Israel and the Gentiles; and ethical orientation with its relationship to the Torah. 2 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
