Treese, Robert L.
MetadataShow full item record
Purpose.-What eschatological doctrine is discernible among the presuppositions of the Compiler of the Gospel According to Matthew? The enigma of this Gospel, seen in the emergence of strongly universal overtones from the most Jewish, the most anti-Gentile, and the most apocalyptic of the gospels, leads to the primary question of this dissertation. The dissertation is a study of the editorial methods.--additions, deletions, emendations, and arrangements of materials--employed by the Compiler, as well as of the materials which are peculiar to this Gospel. The purpose of the study is to determine if the Compiler's work was conditioned by a particular eschatological perspective. [TRUNCATED]
