A Theology of Matthew explores the identity of Jesus and the call to worship him by surveying Matthew’s theological themes and how they interconnect with the rest of the Bible. Quarles focuses on Matthew’s portrait of Jesus as the savior of sinners, the founder of a new Israel, and the incarnation of the creator.

“Matthew’s original readers, however, viewed Moses much more positively. For them, Moses was not primarily a lawgiver. He was a savior, a redeemer, and a deliverer.” (Page 47)

“Repent and repentance refer to a change of mind and heart in which a person realizes the heinousness of his sin, shudders in the face of God’s coming judgment, renounces his sin, and determines, by God’s power, to live as God desires.” (Page 67)

“No manuscript evidence suggests that the gospel ever circulated without a title. The titles are definitely very early” (Page 6)

“Matthew shows that Jesus is like Moses in his infancy, his teaching ministry, his fasting, his miracles, and his transfiguration.” (Page 35)

“Matthew clearly expected his original readers to be familiar with the Old Testament. He anticipated that they would understand the broader context of the Old Testament passages that he quoted and would recognize even subtle allusions to familiar Old Testament texts. Thus, Matthew plainly wrote his gospel primarily for Jewish Christians familiar with the Old Testament from instruction received in the synagogue.” (Page 12)
