Dating the gospel of matthew

First, we find that the author of the First Gospel is thoroughly entrenched in Judaism.

The author often quotes the Hebrew Bible (otherwise known as the Old Testament).

We will begin with the Gospel of Matthew today and will then move towards the other three Gospels before looking at some of the letters in Revelation.Second, the author focuses on Jesus’s work within Galilee and does not so much focus on Jesus’s work with Gentiles as does Luke.Thus, the evangelist is mostly concerned with Jesus’s ministry to the Jews.He parallels the life of Jesus with the great prophets of Judaism.Additionally, he makes every effort to show that Jesus is the fulfillment of messianic prophecy.
