Matthew, Gospel of

(2,245 words)

Author(s): Luz, Ulrich
[German Version] I. Structure. – II. Genre – III. Sources – IV. Origin and Transmission – V. Theological Basics I. Structure 1. Overview Today most scholars read Matthew as a narrative, not as a new Torah in five books or as a concentric composition organized around a particular midpoint. Following Kingsbury, most exegetes consider 16:21 (= Mark 8:31) the beginning of a new main division, so that the structure of Matthew is modeled on that of Mark.

Sermon on the Mount

(3,508 words)

Author(s): Luz, Ulrich | Berner, Ursula | Adam, Gottfried
[German Version] I. New Testament 1. The Matthean text. The first of the five discourses of Jesus in Matthew, Matt 5–7, is called the Sermon on the Mount.

(6,688 words)

Author(s): Dietrich, Walter | Reumann, John | Luz, Ulrich | Strohm, Theodor
1. OT 1.1. Term The Heb. root ṣdq is as comprehensive in meaning as the Eng. “right(eous),” Ger. (ge)recht, Gk. nomos, or Lat. ius (Law). It embraces, besides the narrower legal sense of justice, judgment, and standard for what is right (Ger. Gericht, Rechts-norm), the wider ethicosocial sphere of wholesome and salutary relationships. The masc. ṣedeq denotes a state of beneficently ordered relationships between people or between people and God; the fem. ṣĕdāqâ refers to conduct that corresponds to this state or promotes it; the verb ṣdq describes the related action…
