Learn from the Gospel of Matthew with careful exegesis, developing both a sound exegetical method and related application. Discern Matthew’s message by comparing and contrasting this gospel to the other synoptic texts, and attempt to master the basic content of Matthew’s narrative. Together we’ll focus on select passages in Matthew and address some of the text’s key hermeneutical issues in light of their relevance in our contemporary world. Become familiar with a number of the critical issues in the scholarly study of Matthew, and learn how these concern us. Some familiarity with Koiné Greek will help but is not required.
