Matthew's Gospel is the most significant Jewish-Christian document of the New Testament. For Matthew, the story of Jesus is the underlying tale of his own community, summoned from Israel by the living Jesus and now, following Israel's rejection, sent to the Gentiles. Matthew's Jesus story bears much the same relation to the Matthean community as does the Pentateuch to Israel, hence the profoundly Jewish basis of his theology. Ulrich Luz both outlines and elucidates the story told in Matthew's Gospel, emphasising its focal points* the Sermon on the Mount, the miracles, the renunciation of possessions and particularly the theology of judgement by works, an idea which represents both a challenge, in its quest for a church set apart from non-Christians by deeds alone, and a burden, through its traumatic origin in the breach between the Matthean community and the Israelite majority.
-Publisher

"With this volume in the New Testament Theology series, Ulrich Luz makes another significant contribution to Matthean studies....Luz's fine study...provides an insightful, informed, and stimulating discussion of Matthew's Gospel. But his approach also raises important questions about how current narrative or audience-oriented work might contribute to `a theology of Matthew,' about what `theology' is for this Gospel, how it is done, and how it might be engaged. For these contributions we are indebted to Professor Luz." Journal of Biblical Literature
