Overview

Dr. Jeannine K. Brown examines a number of themes in Matthew and describes their thorough grounding in the Hebrew Scriptures. Highlighting references to the Psalms, Daniel, and more, Brown explores Matthew’s Old Testament–based Christology, including the imagery of Jesus as the representative of Israel, as Davidic king, as the embodiment of wisdom, and as the servant of Yahweh in the Servant Songs of Isaiah. Along the way, Brown provides a guide to the methodology of intertextual study and interpretation.

For additional teaching on the New Testament, see the Mobile Ed: NT305 New Testament Theology.
