Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Heaven and Earth in the Gospel of Matthew contains the table of contents, preface, acknowledgments, and a list of abbreviations. The Gospel of Matthew has been the pride of the church throughout most of her history. It was only in the wake of higher critical studies on the origins of the Gospels that Matthew began to have a rival for preeminence in Mark. The language of heaven is peppered generously throughout Matthew. Heaven moves within a wide semantic domain in Matthew, even as it does in the Old Testament (OT) and other Jewish literature.

Keywords: Gospel of Matthew; language of heaven; Old Testament (OT)
