Summary:

An introduction to the Gospel of Matthew. While some attention will be paid to traditional forms of analysis (Source Criticism and Redaction Criticism in particular), emphasis will be placed on the nature and function of Matthew as a narrative. Included for consideration will be the story itself, the particular way in which the story is narrated, and the experience of reading, all directed towards a better understanding of the Gospel's function as an instrument of social and ecclesial formation.
