Because Matthew shaped his Gospel for reading by 1st century Jews, we're going to spend much time learning about the mindset of those Jews and their world in the Holy Land; but also the entirely different world where the bulk of them lived dispersed into the gentle nations throughout Asia, Europe, and Northern Africa. We'll study how their religion was practiced at that time, their societal norms and nuances, and even what it was like for them to live under Roman rule. These are among the several necessary ingredients that help to build the much-needed context for properly understanding and interpreting Matthew's Gospel. All too often especially Christ's words, and particularly as they were spoken in His parables, have been misunderstood over the centuries because they have been filtered through Western gentile eyes instead of Eastern Jewish eyes. My goal is for us to understand the meaning of Matthew's words just as they would have been understood by the common Jewish folk in his time.
