Matthews Gospel in the Urban Context

This new commentary is built on the assertion that the authentic view of Matthew’s Jesus comes out of economically, politically and socially marginalised people. This key – the urban hermeneutical key in the 21st century – unlocks the view of Jesus that Matthew was preserving. The commentary is available on-line and a new chapter will be downloaded every month

The writers are Paul Skirrow and Peter Winn, who have between them decades of experience working in marginalised urban communities and with workers and unemployed people in northern England.
