By altering the narrative structure and using Old Testament references the author created the “Jewish-Christian” gospel. This classification is fitting, as the structure and features of the gospel of Matthew create a close link to the Jewish heritage of Jesus Christ, appealing to the Jewish audience in the religiously unstable Israel. This…

    The Bible has four gospels but, only two of them contain the nativity story. The two gospels that have the nativity story are the Gospel of Matthew and the Gospel of Luke. Both are similar on a literary level which can be explained by the synoptic problem. The Gospel of Mark and the source “Q” were the basis of these two gospels. Matthew and Luke shared sources but, they had their individual sources too. The genealogy, the nativity, and the childhood of Jesus played significant roles within the…

    When it comes to the Gospel of Matthew, there are very different perspectives when it comes to Jesus. At the time of Matthew writing his gospels, his main focus was on mainly to provide people who were in a sense “like him” to hear the great news when it came to Jesus. One of Matthews main purposes was to be able to provide everyone and anyone who wanted to listen the story of how Jesus lived, died, and then brought back; this is why the Gospel of Matthew is a matter of fact called the Gospel…

    • 3 Pages

    Perhaps, one observation of the predicaments of the four Gospels will suggest that the author of Matthew composed his Gospel by copying and editing the sources of Mark, Q and M. Nevertheless, by examining his literature, one may find several selections of his arrangements filled perhaps, with his own interpretation and understandings of the actual Kerugma, fundamentals and traditions in which he worked on. On of which is the way Matthew makes his own characteristics of the theology relating to…

    Jesus said, “The kingdom of the Father is like a woman. She took a little bit of yeast. She hid it in dough and made it into huge loaves of bread.” Question: A saying of Jesus similar to this one appears in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke, but in two different narrative settings.
