About this product
- DescriptionThis study of the Matthean narrative uses the interpretive lens of food exchange to explore the Matthean community s relationship with the wider world. While many studies depict this community as withdrawing from or in conflict with the larger society, James P. Grimshaw s focus on the daily need for food reveals a community that, while distinct, progressively integrates itself into the larger Jewish and Gentile society and the natural world. In addition, this view of community corresponds to the view of a God who actively provides for and relates to all creation. Grimshaw s alternative portrayal of the Matthean community, whose interactions with its surrounding environment are more complex and sustained than often imagined, is a compelling interpretation for today s stratified and disconnected world.
