The Matthean community stands at the crossroads wrestling with how to preserve and honour their Jewish past while welcoming Gentiles into the Christian community. Matthew articulates an inclusive vision where both Jew and Gentile are welcome, and unity can be found in putting into practice the higher righteousness espoused in the Sermon on the Mount. This unit will undertake a literary, exegetical and theological study of Matthew's Gospel. Special attention will be paid to the manner in which Matthew makes use of his sources (Gospel of Mark, the Q source, and special Matthean material).
