“The point is rather that by using a coin that is invested with political and religious symbols of the power of the Roman emperor they have long since acknowledged his claim to power.” (Page 66)

“Matthew ends his Gospel not with his own words but with a ‘manifest’5 of the risen Jesus” (Page 615)

“The church is a corpus permixtum. What is the oil that the foolish women did not have? Something must be added to the torch for it to give light. In 5:16* the evangelist has said openly that the disciples’ light shines through their good works. From the previous parable the readers will be thinking of interpersonal relationships, of love.60 Matthew does not explain it here; he simply speaks again, as he had in 24:42*, of being awake.” (Page 235)

“The meaning was clear: in the final judgment the standard by which Christians are measured is the works of compassion that they have done or not done toward their poor and needy Christian brothers and sisters.” (Page 272)

“Important finally is that everything in this parable is told for the sake of its parenetic dimension. One speaks of the future judgment for the sake of the present. The present ‘is not the time of an empty absence of the Lord,’94 but the chance to put the light on top of the bushel and to let one’s works shine for the praise of the Father (5:15–16*). It means the chance to risk not only one’s own possessions (cf. 19:16–27*) but even one’s own life (cf. 10:39*; 16:25*).” (Page 258)
