Date
  • Despite some claims that it was written after the destruction of Jerusalem in AD70 due to the detailed description it claims Jesus gave of this event, there is historical evidence to suggest it was written before the deaths of Peter and Paul.
  • Therefore, the most likely date was the late 50’s or early 60’s.
theme
Theme
  • This is the story of Jesus of Nazareth, recorded by the apostle Matthew as a compelling witness that Jesus is the long-anticipated Messiah, who brought the Kingdom of God to earth and is the prophesied fulfilment of God’s promise of true peace and deliverance for both Jew and Gentile.
purpose
Purpose
  • Matthew crafted his account to demonstrate Jesus’ messianic identity, his inheritance of the Davidic kingship over Israel, and his fulfilment of the promise made to his ancestor Abraham to be a blessing to all the nations.
purpose1
Purpose
  • Now the Lord said to Abram, ‘Go from your country and your kindred and your father’s house to the land that I will show you. I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you, and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and the one who curses you I will curse; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed’ (Genesis 12:1–3).
purpose2
Purpose
  • Matthew’s Gospel is an evangelistic tool aimed at his fellow Jews.
  • It provided encouragement for Jewish converts to stand steadfast amid opposition from their own countrymen.
purpose3
Purpose
  • Matthew establishes the identity of Christ’s church as the true people of God.
purpose4
Purpose
  • Matthew establishes the identity of Christ’s church as the true people of God.
  • Many believe that the church in Syrian Antioch was the intended audience but the Gospel soon spread far and wide among many of the fledgling churches of that era.

  • Matthew’s distinguishing stylistic features include recurrent quotation and citation from the OT and an emphasis on Jesus as being kingly or royal, where even the opening genealogy places Jesus’ supposed earthly father Joseph in the Davidic line!
writing style9
Writing Style
  • Additionally, Matthew is fond of the term ‘Son of David’ as a title for Christ, using it ten times in all.
  • He also uses statements to the effect that ‘this was done that it might be fulfilled as the prophets had said’, and the formula ‘the Kingdom of heaven is like’.
