Gospel of Matthew: God with Us

With all we have to unite us, we still find ways to create division. It is an age-old question: do we focus on what sets us apart or what holds us together? According to Matthew, it is Emmanuel, God with us. The First Evangelist and the new Christian community saw themselves first as part of Judaism, not separate from it. A distinguishing feature of the Gospel according to Matthew is its use of the Greek term ekklesia, which means an assembly of ones who are called out. It conveys nothing of the static conception of the word “church” held by many today. According to Matthew, the Church is an earthly manifestation of the kingdom of God, and it is comprised of Jesus’ followers who have been called out to live righteously in the world and to serve in the manner of the Christ with deep humility and unfathomable forgiveness. In Jesus, there is a new community at work for the blessing of the world. What is it that binds us together? Jesus—God With Us.
