The Church in the Gospel of Matthew
Lecture no. 12 from the course: Understanding the New Testament
Taught by Professor David Brakke | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses
Continue your study of the Gospel of Matthew, which gives us the only mention of the word “church” in all of the four gospels. Consider Matthew’s interest in forming and leading the church, and reflect on the conflict, in Matthew, between the Jesus who teaches Jewish law and the Jesus who critiques Jewish leaders.
