This course from distinguished New Testament professor Dr. Craig Evans discusses the original context in which Matthew wrote his Gospel, as well as his purpose for writing. Matthew wrote for those still connected to the synagogue, answering questions based upon their Jewish context. Dr. Evans takes you from the ancient context of Matthew’s Gospel to applications for today.
