Synopsis: Following a thorough examination of the structure, language, and argument of Matthew?s discourse on parables, Anthony O. Ewherido underscores its primary relevance to the ongoing discussion on the social context of Matthew?s Gospel. The convincing analysis of the textual evidence and study of some social and historical trends in Christianity and Judaism in the post-70 C.E. era inform Ewherido?s conclusion that at the time the Gospel was written to its predominantly Jewish-Christian community, that community had parted ways with Judaism and stood at an ideologically irreconcilable distance from the «synagogue across the street.»
From the Back Cover: "On the basis of a careful and meticulous redaction-critical analysis of Matthew 13, Anthony O. Ewherido identifies meaningful patterns in the evangelist's work of creating out of disparate parabolic materials a rhetorically effective and logically coherent discourse. Ewherido goes on to demonstrate convincingly that this redactional evidence also betrays key information about the social location of the community that is being addressed. Students of Matthew's Gospel will certainly profit from this book." Dean P. Bechard, S.J., Professor of New Testament, Pontifical Biblical Institute, Rome
"Anthony O. Ewherido's painstaking analysis of Matthew 13 under the combined agendas of redaction criticism and social history, follows the direction taken by Ulrich Luz in the latter's extensive work on Matthew. Ewherido demonstrates how chapter 13 contributes to the evangelist's narrative portrayal of the gradual and painful estrangement of a church open to the Gentiles from the self-consolidating synagogue of post-70 C.E." Rev. Dr. Richard J. Dillon, Professor of New Testament, Fordham University, New York
