Israel, Church, and the Gentiles in the Gospel of Matthew

Full Product Description

This book addresses one of the central theological problems of Matthews Gospel: what are the relationships between Israel and the Church and between the mission to Israel and the mission to the Gentiles? To answer these questions, Matthias Konradt traces the surprising transition from the Israel-centered words and deeds of Jesus (and his disciples) before Easter to the universal mission of Jesus earliest followers after his resurrection. Through careful historical and narrative analysis, Konradt rejects the interpretation of the Gospel of Matthew that the Church replaced Israel in Gods purposesthat is, the interpretation that because Israel rejected Jesus as Israels Messiah, the Church replaced Israel in the role of Gods chosen people. Konradt instead discovers in Matthew that the Israel- and universally-centered dimensions of Gods saving purposes are far more positively connected. Matthew develops a narrative that features Jesus identity as both the messianic Son of David and the universal Son of God.
What developed into a mainly Gentile Church should never think of itself as the "new" or "true Israel; rather, according to Matthews Gospel, the Church represents an extension of the promises first made to Israel and now inclusive of the Gentiles.
