REL 253: Study Guide 13

 

What's Mt's vision of the faith community (cf. Mk's community as one that suffers & waits, perhaps fearfully, for the return of Jesus)?

 

What differences do you see between Matt 4.245.12 & Luke 6.1726 (also Mk 3.713a); also between Matt 6.515 & Luke 11.14 (also Mk 11.25[26])?

 

How serious is Matt about observing the Mosaic law (e.g., 5.1648; 7.2123)?

 

How often does Mt use his Bible (Septuagint) & why? (see Harris)

 

NB the differences especially between Mt & Lk.
