Apocalyptic Eschatology in the Gospel of Matthew

Full Product Description

This 1996 study reconstructs the apocalyptic eschatology in Matthew's Gospel so that we may understand his time and concerns. Sociological analysis of apocalypticism in Judaism and early Christianity shows that such a comprehensive world view, which emphasized the final judgement and its aftermath within a dualistic and deterministic framework, was adopted by minority of sectarian groups undergoing a situation of great crisis. The Matthean community, after the first Jewish war against Rome, came into conflict with Judaism, gentiles and the larger Christian movement. Matthew's distinctive and often vengeful vision must be set against both his acute need to enhance his community's sense of itself and his pastoral concern. Dr Sim offers for the first time in English an extended and comprehensive comparison of Matthew's outlook with contemporary eschatological literature.

Apocalyptic Eschatology in the Gospel of Matthew by David C. Sim was published by Cambridge University Press (Virtual Publishing) in November 2009. The ISBN for Apocalyptic Eschatology in the Gospel of Matthew is 9780511555084.
