2 - 4 weeks availability
This insightful study explores the significance of the interactions between Jesus and 'marginal' women recounted in the "Gospel of Matthew". Employing social-scientific models and carefully using comparative data, "Love" examines the various aspects of this marginality, identifying the attempts of Matthew's Gospel to promote Jesus' vision of a new surrogate family of God that challenges the traditional structures of the household.
Stuart L. Love is Professor of New Testament and Christian Ministry at Pepperdine University. He is also a member of The Context Group, Society of Biblical Literature, and Catholic Biblical Association.
