Reflection Questions
  • How do you sum up the parallel that might exist between Matthew’s structure and the structure of the Torah; and what difference does it make?

  • Why is it important to know the social background of the New Testament text?

  • What makes the story of the gospel’s spread in the New Testament period so important for mission strategists today? Why do you think the Holy Spirit chose a person like Paul to provide leadership in first-century missions?
