The Way Opened Up by Jesus
Full Product Description
The four gospels, written in different historical and cultural contexts, give us different perspectives on that person and that message. This Biblical commentary explores Matthews perspective, using the Matthean passages. Each passage is examined, both in the context that shaped Matthews telling of the story, and in the context of todays Christian communities. Matthews perspective shows Jesus transforming the expectations of the People of Israel.
- He is the fulfillment of God's ancient promises to them
- He is God's new presence with them after the destruction of the Temple
- He is the Prophet of a new Law, proclaimed from a new Mount Sinai
- He is the Messiah who calls together the new Israel, which Matthew calls the Church
He is also the Teacher of Life, whose surprising, and disconcerting, sermons and parables offer the new spiritual energy that todays churches need in order to be transformed from adherents into followers.

"Pagola has a simple message to convey. God must be understood as compassion, not power. In his books he sets out to depict, in clear, accessible layman s language, as much as the historical sources allow, a comprehensive picture of Jesus of Nazareth. Just who was he? What was his contemporary world really like? Why did he want to go beyond complex religious codes and ritual practices? And why did he end up on collision course with the local Jewish authorities and the delegates of imperial Rome?" - Mark Dowd, The Tablet, UK
