Chapter Summary

Throughout the history of the Church the apostle Peter has been recognized to have a special place in the gospel of Matthew. This chapter examines the role of Peter in this gospel in order to isolate special Matthean distinctives and theological perspectives surrounding Peter. It is divided into two parts. The first part is an analysis of the texts where Peter occurs in Mt, and is exegetical in nature. It involves a study of the Matthean text in relationship to the sources and an isolation of Matthean theological elements. The second part is theological in nature. It takes the theological elements and establishes how they contribute to Matthew's Tendenz concerning Peter. The goal is to come to some conclusions as to the relationship between the disciples as a group and the role of Peter in the gospel of Matthew.

Keywords: Matthean theological elements; Matthew; Simon Peter
