Description

In Matt 23:23, Jesus criticizes the scribes and Pharisees for tithing mint, dill and cummin while neglecting the weightier matters of the law: justice/judgment (κρίσις), mercy (ἔλεος) and faith (πίστις). These weightier matters of the law are so pervasive throughout the Gospel that they may also be deemed to be weightier matters of the Gospel. The purpose of this study is to explore the nature of and relationship between justice/judgment and mercy in the Gospel of Matthew and to affirm a pro-law Matthean Jesus.
