This study by Alistair Wilson seeks to allow Matthew’s carefully constructed presentation of Jesus to be given full weight in the modern evaluation of Jesus’ eschatology. Careful analysis of the text of Matthew 21–25 reveals Jesus to be standing firmly in the Jewish prophetic and wisdom traditions as he proclaims and enacts imminent judgment on the Jewish authorities; then boldly claims the central role in the final and universal judgment.
