Chapter Summary

This appendix presents apocalyptic elements and sapiential elements in the Gospel of Matthew. David E. Orton's work addresses the question of the relationship of sapiential and apocalyptic elements in the gospel, since a major part of the background to the term "scribe" is seen as being in the wisdom literature. The most significant work on apocalyptic elements in Matthew's Gospel is that of David Sim's Apocalyptic Eschatology in the Gospel of Matthew. He sought to provide a monograph treatment of the subject, drawing particularly on the suggestion of G. Stanton that division between the Matthean Christian community and the Jewish parent group provided the social context that explains the increased importance of apocalyptic elements within the gospel.

Keywords: apocalyptic elements; David E. Orton; David Sim; Gospel of Matthew; sapiential elements; wisdom literature
