Year A:
The Gospel of Matthew

Date of Authorship

Structure of Matthew

Commentary on Matthew

The evangelist we call "Matthew" wrote a structured gospel. If we take away his Passion narrative, we can see five sections; each have narrative and discourse. The author edited Mark's gospel and the verses he shared with Luke ("Q" Sayings) to fit into the themes of those sections.


Jewish Cultural Context

With an emphasis on fulfilling Scripture quotes, most scholars throughout the centuries assume Matthew wrote to a Jewish-Christian audience. So, to understand the gospel of Matthew, we need some background in the culture of Judea at the time of Jesus.

Commentary on John's Gospel

After a long gestation and more than a few diversions, the commentary on John's gospel is now available. It includes the question of dating, its possible structure and various themes that have generated controversy.
